Hi, I'm new here. I've got a new DS220+ NAS which I unfortunately can't connect it to the internet.


# Problem: I get the message "Connection failed. Please check your internet connection" in various flavors.

Control Panel > Update & Restore > DSM Update > Status: "Connection failed. Please check your internet connection"

Control Panel > Synology Account >Popup: "Unable to perform this operation, possibly because the network connection is unstable..."

Package Center > Popup: "Connection failed. Please check your network and time settings..."

Regional Options > Time Settings > Synchronise with NTP server > Status: "Normal" (!!!)


# What I want


I want to a) be able to update my NAS and b) download some packages for a self-hosted setup (docker, git, paperless, ...)



# Things I tried

Finally, as I can update the date/time, I believe this to be a DNS problem. I ran some random commands, but I have no idea what I am doing here..

it appears as if pinging to the Synology servers via CLI works. But in the GUI I still get the errors.

Solution
I would reset (short 3s) the nas to reset network settings to default, pick it up from the synology assistant and follow the instruction from fortran. Do not mess with all these settings, no need. this should work right out of the box.

It's not a DNS problem; NSLOOKUP is resolving download.synology.com from 8.8.8.8 and your pings were being resolved
  • Simplify things: remove ethernet cable from LAN2. Focus on getting a connection on LAN1 working correctly.
  • Remove 'Set as default gateway' from IPv4 LAN1 settings. You almost certainly want your router out to the internet to be the default gateway, not your NAS.

Hi, I have exactly the same problem with my DS220+ running DSM 7.2-64570 Update 2.

I.e.
  • time synchronization works OK
  • package centre works OK (ie loads packages)
  • settings backup to Synology account works OK
  • however, the "Update & Restore" gives me "Connection failed. Please check your Internet connection".
I've already tried rebooting or resetting network settings (holding reset button until a beep), however, no success.

Does anyone have any other idea what to do?

I just noticed that I'm having the same issue...

Does not work:
  • DSM update -> Connection failed... blah blah blah
  • Package center -> Connection failed... blah blah blah

Does work:
  • Config backup to synology account
  • NTP to pool.ntp.org
  • Backup to synology C2 -> I had an error that it failed during the night, when I woke up I ran the task manually and it worked
  • nslookup from terminal to various domains, including synology.com

I haven't changed anything for a while, my first guess is that this may be a problem on synology's end.

I'll give it a few hours or a day and if it still does not work I'll open a support ticket.

I also have the same issue, NTP time sync + other network-related items (cloud backup, nslookup from terminal session, etc ) all working. I'm assuming (as @Rusty wrote) this is an upstream issue. other troubleshooting steps are related to DNS etc etc which I've confirmed to be "fine" from CLI.

Synology is quick to blame others for their screw-ups.Odd that this "AWS issue " seems only to have affected Synology (rare too that an AWS issue would extend beyond 24 hours). Just sayin...
I agree. But with no info on this it's hard to point fingers. Syno should be more transparent on this for sure

I have "recovered" the package center functionality after manually installing the synology photos 1.5 package .spk. I have no idea why...

DSM update still reports "connection error check your internet" which is funny considering the problem is on the server end:

I find really annoying when error messages blame the user for something that may or may not be the user problem. In this case synology is not telling categorically that the internet connection is the source of the error, but as they are only telling you to check the internet they are heavily implying that it's the only possible cause.

I've actually filed formal complaints with my local mass transit provider due to some access machines telling that the user travel card has no magnetic band, and then the machine next to it accepting the card without issue. If the machine cannot tell if itself is in perfect working order it cannot assume that the travel card is defective.
