Can't connect to my NAS through G3100 Fios Router

This should be very simple, but I can't access my NAS (Synology 212j) from within my LAN.  Prior to getting the G3100 no problem.  The internal IP address is 192.168.1.123.  It shows up on the Device List, just can't access it.

Opened port 5000 and 5001 to no avail.  I'm not THAT savvy with this stuff, so any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Port forwarding is not required unless you need to access the NAS from the outside. Even then opening holes on your firewall is not secure.

Unless you have set the IP address of the NAS on the NAS, the IP address is a dynamic address and can be changed upon running a different DHCP server on your LAN.
