    Was hoping I could get a tip with a problem I'm having. I just set up an aiport extreme and connected an NAS to it (which is running linux). I am able to access the NAS off of my laptop BUT apparently I need the IP adress of the actual device to fully access software on it. I know the adress of my router by using the airport utility, but could anybody advise me as to how I could get the IP adress of my Nas? I'm running OS X 10.6 incidentally.

    Thank you!!!

    Open Airport Utility, then select Advanced, Statistics, click the Logs and Statistics button then select the DHCP Clients pane. This will give you a list of the DHCP clients and IP addresses being served by your router. To keep the IP address from changing, you may want to create a DHCP reservation for the NAS on the Internet | DHCP configuration pane.
