A workaround that I've found works. Check it out: http://charlestendell.com/os-x-lion-afp-nas-connection-error-fix/

You do not state which Qnap model you have, however Qnap has a new firmware with DHX2 support (3.4.4 Build 0718T), check the Qnap forums for details:-
TM is still broken though

I don't have a Qnap. The info between both == signs is to give an understanding of what’s going on.
Myself I have a HP Proliant 4 x 1 TB drives running Ubuntu 8.04.2 with 4shares for my Mac stuff under 'afp' and 1 share under 'smb', so my wife’s Windows work laptop can be backed up.
Now I have got all my connectivity back by using the terminal commands whichis now well documented but here is a good place if doing it on Lion as shown byMember 'ctendell'...
I can now see my server and everything on it but still no Time Machine backups because you need Netatalk 2.2 to be loaded on the server in my case and millions of others into Ubuntu.
(The version I am sporting at present is Netatalk 2.03). This I can do by using Webmin and will do it after the update to Lion due shortly. I could do it now, but I won't.
I should never have updated to Lion, and do what I have always done, and that was wait until at least 3-4 updates have taken place and review all the discussions on this forum to see if issues have been resolved.
With regards to DH....Things may have been fixed in the next update which has been seeded and a selectable choice option to use the prior DH....over the new version may be on the cards. The Netatalk latest version is still in beta format though it can be used and has been implemented by NAS manufacturers, but as I understand its due to become 'stable' and no longer in 'beta mode'.
I dare say that S.Jobs will not want to alienate a huge group so a fix will be the right thing to do but given the mountain of cash they have and most of the revenue coming from iPhones, iPads etc, they may decide not to and of course that means 3rd party fixes.
Patience is a virtue but Apple sometimes sorely tests it.

Please follow these instructions:

I had the same problem. After I updated to Lion My wife's PC couldn't see my iMac on our network. I read a crap load of blogs and finally tried this and it worked:
System preferences > Network > Advanced > Choose TCP/IP tab > Renew DHCP lease.
Hope it works for you...

Go to http://www.apple.com/feedback and tell them this is a problem.
The workaround does not work for all servers and in our case we have four very large legacy file servers to which Lion will not connect. Unfortunately many of the systems in our business depend on these and there is a (federal) certification of our processes that makes it extremely difficult to replace them.
As a result of Apple removing this capability, we can no longer use Macs in our office and we are forced to not only switch to Windows for new users but also migrate our existing users back to Windows.
If enough people provide feedback, maybe Apple will figure it out. They're starting to act like Microsoft and that's not good for anyone.

Finally got around this failure to connect by AFP issue with my QNAP NAS (firmware 3.5 to 3.6 versions). As it turned out, it was most likely due to incompatibilities with some old hidden files deposited by the Mac from some time back within top level QNAP volume folders. Use whatever means (I used my FTP application) and delete the following files/folders.
Switch off AFP networking on the QNAP NAS.
Then remove the following and more,
Network Trash Folder - Which contains a Mac hidden folder/files
Reactivate AFP on the NAS and it all should work like magic again under OS X 10.7 Lion.

Sorry to be a bit dim, but where are these files located:
Also where is the Network trsah folder?
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 25, 2012 3:51 PM (in response to wmike1503)
These files are hidden files located within each folder. You won't see them regularly unless the application can show hidden files. Some people telnet in while I have used Cyberduck to FTP in.
