Synology E10G18-T1 direct connection do not work

I have installed a E10G18-T1 into my ds1618+. I have installed an asus XG-C100C into my win 10 desktop. Both installations appear successful. I have connected the two cards via a 4meter cat6A cable. Synology Assistant finds the NAS connected via this cable. It has a mac address only, status is offline, WOL is off. I cannot connect/map a drive. S Assistant also find the same server via the 1GB connection to my router. How do I connect my desktop to the asus NAS connection?

  3. Under the IPv6 tab, select a setup type from IPv6 setup:
