Hi all,

 

I've a HP proliant gen8 where I would like to install DS, but currently I don't have a fisic router, only wifi connection.

 

When I try to find it in find.synology, it cannot find anything.

 

Does anyone have an idea or solution for this?

 

 

Cheers

Wifi won‘t work. You’ll need a cable connection on your NAS for the setup. You could try a portable DHCP server on a PC which is connected by LAN to your NAS. Usually this tools show what client get an IP address to which you can connect. But you can’t use find.synology.com since this is an external service which requires an internet connection.

I'll try this option, even that the main PC will only connect by wifi and then by cable from this pc to the proliant server Gen8.

 

I'll leave feedback as soon as I'll test this.

 

Thanks for your ideas.
