That's not particularly useful.

Some NASes send the IP later in an Interim-Update. Have you checked that?

Not sure where you expect the proxy server to get the data from if the NAS never sent it in the first place.

You need to fix the NAS, or look at another place to get the IP address from such as the DHCP logs.

If the NAS can't be fixed now might be a good time to trial a different wireless system if you need that functionality...
