  • Hi,
    usually if you change the router, the server receives also a different IP address via DHCP, as the clients do.
    If all else is correctly configured, you should be able to reconnect by executing C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\discovery.exe on each client.

    If you ever manually entered an IP address for the server in the hosts file on the clients. you will need to adjust this.

    Best greetings from Germany
