Can someone help me here? I tried to write a Synology noob guide, but then I realize there is so much shiat on a Synology NAS that one has to cover. Anyone got any idea what I should try to cover with the guide? Nothing to overwhelm a Synology noob?
HoW to set it up.

Get NAS do what first,

Setup dsm, raid, shared folders, user account and groups

Then need to create user or enable guest and allow read/enable to do away without local users having the need to authenticate to open folders and files

Then...
-Create sftp, http/s to login into NAS from external
-allow ssh or not
-Enable auto blocking of IP


Etc...

Need help here.
I got an old 1010+, just bought 5x3tb RedWD, downloaded latest .pat
Wat I did so far....
-Plug in all drives, Nas will not not boot to beep.
-Remove 4 drives, Nas boot to beep, using SynAssist to setup,then got exception error during format.
-I assume DSM failed install cos this drive will not boot to beep.
-Repeat with various combo of DSM options....now all drive cannot boot to beep, Nas will boot to beep only without drive.
now exploring how to prep drive to restart.

Any help?
It is a case of bad ram, the 1gb DDR 667 ram was no good, ditched it and I am humming along.
The UI is so beautiful, I am coming over from the Readynas camp.

Write it like a quick start guide but with more details, step by step especially the initial setup and plenty of screenshots please.
Explanation of choices available i.e. SHR or Raid5 etc.

Necessary steps like create users, shares to make the NAS usable.
Recommended package to install (essential and optional).

A simple rundown on the control panel is also welcome.

Since most newbies are home user, photo, music, video and camera are the target uses, cover some paragraphs on them.

Then finally poison newbies to buy more toys like streamers, IPcams etc.

Hi Everyone
Need your help and advice.
My current setup
M1 Fibre Optic Plan
Terminal Huawei Echolife HG8240 -> Huawei Router HG256 Home Gateway

My Synology DS213 connects to my Huawei Router

My desktop connects to the router through a Aztech Homeplug AV 200 Mbps

Data writing and transfer is horrible - a small excel file will take 10 to 15 secs.

Please advise.

I am having similar problem. My new DS213J is connected to aztech home plug 500 Mbps and I performed NAS Performance Tester with only 8mb/s. My read is only 2 to 5mb/s. I cannot imagine read is slower than write. I have not tested LAN connection, maybe tonight when I have the time. Anyone with home plug connection can share their experience?

Looking forward to a newbie guide. I need to transfer my dlink based data over to my synology nas. Don't know how to SSH.

Both: hmm.. do a test directly to the router instead of the homeplug.

To Slowdown: copy and paste via Windows, if SSH is difficult.

go to Synology site.

IMO, there is nothing much to setup if your NAS is just a pure storage bank.
