NAS drive not always visible from devices

I'm runnning a MyBookWorld NAS,  ethernet connected to my Technicolor 582n router. It's sometimes not visible on the devices we have -2 laptops and 2 ipads. I keep having to turn router off and back on again to see and access  the NAS from the devices.  The router and NAS generally don't get turned off unless we're away for  more than a few days. Is there any fiddling I could do in the technicolor gateway that would keep the NAS recognised and communicating to my network? was looking specifically at this list of (to me)  completely meaningless options
..
Assign a game or application to a local network device
Assign the DMZ to a local network device
Assign the public IP address of a connection to a device
I'm a  non techie person so please reply gently!  thanks

Re: NAS drive not always visible from devices

Oh dear, I see no-one ever responded to your post, not a very nice welcome to the forum I must say. For the record, welcome.
Switching the 582n on and off just to resolve this issue is not the best of ideas on ADSL. I don't know if you'll reply as this is so long after your post.
How have you got the NAS connected to your network at present? I'm guessing it might be wireless.
