Hi
I have a Synology DS418play which has an ethernet cable into a switch.
That switch connects over powerline adapter to my router.
I have a Windows laptop.

I recently had to replace our router.

Now I was access the NAS if my Windows Laptop has an ethernet cable in.
But not over wifi.

When Ethernet plugged in I can
ping the server
find it on Synology Assistant
use file explorer to browse to files


When Ethernet plugged out I CANT
ping the server
find it on Synology Assistant
use file explorer to browse to files

AFAIK the only thing that changed was the router.

To Note
Wifi Network is Private / Home.
No firewall rules that would restrict that I can see
Both NAS and wifi on same subnet mask
Currently using min SMB2 and max SMB3
Wifi is not on guest network

Thanks (for reading all that!)

Just like to understand the connection a bit better. Using the ethernet cable, is the connection via
PC- ethernet cable - router - Powerline - Switch - NAS
or
PC- ethernet cable - NAS
or
PC- ethernet cable - Switch - NAS

Its
PC - Ethernet - Switch - Nas
Also
PC - Ethernet - Switch - Powerline - Router

Hope that makes sense.
 
That indeed is strange. In such a setup I would not expect that the router discriminates between network and wifi connections.
Your explanation dismisses most of the things that popped up in my minde like guest network, firewall or parenteral control settings.
Are there any other devices on your LAN that can be accessed for testing. Like a printer or other device connected to the ethernet? Do these work?

Can you quickconnect via your mobile phone to the nas?

Thanks for the help.

I can use "DS File" no problem to connect to the NAS over wifi from my android phone.
