I had a Synology router, and you need to use the Assistant software to view/change anything, AND the correct version of that software for the unit you have.

I had to email Synology support the S/N of my unit (which I got off the sticker) and they sent me a link to the correct download.

MAC and Serial are located on the daughter board. That little tiny board with the standoffs on it. Copy the checksum too, or it won't boot.

OOps. Almost forgot. As its been awhile since I had a play in shop. If yours doesn't have the daughter board, then its in the bios. Just extract the bios, and search for term "SN=". Mac address too is right next to it. Also copy the CHKSM over as well. Should be like 3 digits.
