    I just purchased an Apple TC and swapped out my old router. The issue I'm having is I can't access my NAS200 anymore! Its plugged in and says connected, however cannot be accessed. I've rebooted both many times, and am not sure why the NAS200 can't be read. Might it have to do with IP address mapping? The TC maps IPs starting with 10. instead of the usual 192.

    Thanks in advance!

    You're in a catch-22 situation where you have to reconfigure your NAS200 network configuration but you can't reach it because the network configuration is wrong.

    If you still have your old router, hook that up the way you had it before so that you can reach the NAS. Then change the configuration so it uses DHCP to get a network address, or so that it has a fixed IP address in the 10.x.x.x range.

    It should also be possible to change your network configuration on your Mac so that it uses a second IP address on the same Network adapter that you have on your LAN; that way your computer has two addresses: one on the old network and one on the new network. You should be able to reach the NAS200 via its old address, change the configuration and then remove the second IP address from your network adapter.

    Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this on Apple operating systems...
