Please explain by what you mean by unable to find it on your home network.

Did you read the setup guide and users manual?
Did you try installing and running the windows software?

The software is not necessary since you can configure the NAS from its web configuration pages. However, you do need to find its IP address. You should be able to look at the router's web page that shows attached devices (exact page depends on make/model of router). Start a web browser and enter the IP address. A login screen should pop up where you would enter the username and password (from the manual).

If successful in accessing the web setup page then your own you way to configuring the desired services.

Is the power switch set to auto or on? Make sure it is in the on position.
Check the status of the info/error LED. Is it blinking orange?

There is another LED that flashes when there are errors. If all you see is a blue light then all is good.

Do you have a windows PC where you can try communicating with the NAS with the supplied software?
