Hi bros,

Just bought a 412+ and have a question.

I have 2 PCs (one with 10/100 NIC another with gigabit NIC) and synology 412+ NAS connected to the same gigabit router.

Will the PC with the 10/100 NIC connected to the Gigabit switch bring down the overall network performance causing the PC with gigabit NIC and Synology NAS to slow down to 10/100 speed?
Short answer yes. The slower NIC will slow down everything in your network. Nothing will be in gigabit.

thanks for your prompt reply bro. another question. Will my laptop with wireless B connected to the same gigabit router affect the wired performance of the router?

Nope. Won't affect the wired. That's what I'm doing for one of my PCs also.

Based on your description, I would say getting a 4 bay NAS with good performance actually makes more sense than getting another 2 bay NAS.

My reasoning:
  1. Torrenting is actually quite CPU intensive.
  2. If you have 2 NAS with 2 bays, it means you are practically doing a RAID 1. Why not just get a 4 bay one and do RAID 5?
  3. If you get 1x 4 bay NAS, you just need 1 UPS to cover it, if you get 2x 2 bay NAS, how you going to cover in the future?
Can 1 UPS cover 2 NAS?

btw my office got these unit:
DS 509+ with 5x1.5TB raid 5
DS 509+ with 5x2TB raid 5
DS 1812+ with 4x3TB Green + 4x3TB Red
DS 1812+ with 8x3TB Red

the DS 509+ daily write is around 300GB per day each. Last time using Seagate 1.5TB ... the HDD died after 3 years (slowly one by one) while the Nas is still going strong for 4 years

Why not? One be master UPS server for another one to ping it. If master say got daiji, slave ones will react, heck even your PC can ping it via WinNUT.

currently i use CS 650, last time wanted the Back-UPS Pro lower end one, but not out yet.
If 900 supported, cannot be your 650 not supported mah. Go plug in and see lor.

No please. Roll calls make the thread SUPER SUPER messy. I see it in edmw, scroll through such threads is jitao headache.

Got the 412+ and two 3GB WD Red. Any one using iSCSI? Pro and cons of it?

I can't seem to login to my DS through the internet, probably the ports are not forwarded. Will go try it out once I get my router up. Any advice what I should look out for?

The general recommendation is the WD Red Drives which are supposedly designed for NAS usage.

When you are in DSM and open the File Station panel, do you get a pop up telling you to install the latest Java suited for your OS? Why do they keep popping up - even after I had install the latest Java into my OS?
