    You can try these settings for DNS:
    1) 8.8.8.8 (Googles public DNS; usually very fast and responsive)
    2) your Gateway's IP-address

    Probably both works.
    Yes DNS should not be blank ! Without DNS the machine can only find stuff by ip number not names .

    DNS can be your gateway aka routers ip usually this is good as most routers do DNS forwarding .
    You can set DNS for the whole network in one place.

    Googles dns server as sugested .

    Your ISP’s DNS server., check in your router or run ip comfig command in a dos window on your pc.

    You need DNS.
    A NAS is best with a static IP so no to dhcp but you do need DNS.
    Somewhere there will be an option to set DNS servers.
    Use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 if you don’t have your ISPs DNS server addresses to hand.

    I am outside of my knowledge here.....I have changed sone settings in line with your and others suggestions.......how ever the DNS still remains blank in the Network settings despite everything I seem to try. Could it be this that is causing the problems? (Photo attached.)

    You probably want fixed ip for the else of mounting the NAS your computer and always have the same ip for the web UI .

    But you could try DHCP on the NAS to see if it gets a DNS adress . If your router has a setting to reserve ip you can make it always disc out the same ip .

    Maybe the NAS UI is borked use a terminal and SSH and some comand like ifconfig to see whats the network settings are.

    Did you restart/power cycle your NAS after changing the network settings? That is usually required for changed network configuration to take effect.

    Thanks everyone - I have been trying and trying and seem to have achieved the goal of getting a DNS.......however I still get invalid username or password from within LMS and the player is not connected to mysqueezebox.com. Still no radios except what were already favourites.....I have restarted the NAS and LMS several times.....

    I have taken three sceenshots to show what I have got in the way of settings....is there anything else I can try?

    Check that the LMS folder where "prefs" are stored is writable

    To find it - Settings / Information - at the bottom

    Then using an SSH client check the permissions on the folder
