I have a Zyxel storage box. How do I find it's IP address if I have it's MAC address? I am trying to connect to it but don't know the IP.

Cheers
Paul

should find it in the router dhcp tables if connected to a router, unless you have set a fixed IP and if you had then you would know the IP :D

I'm plugging a cable from my laptop directly into it.
Haven't a clue about how these things work.

its unlikely to work like that - it will need a router to give it an address

whats the exact model

what cable are you using - ethernet cable
do you have a router - if so make and model

It doesn't have a default static IP? Just getting an APIPA (169.254.x.y) assigned? I suppose you could try something like Advanced IP Scanner, and scan 169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254.
