DIR-882 and NAS?

(1/2) > >>

SkinnyCyclist:
Thinking about buying this router but Googled some worrying reports concerning NAS - are there any known limitations regarding this? I have a 4TB WD My Cloud NAS and I need to access this both from within my home Wifi network and from work.

Thanks.

I would review this:
 Router USB HDD Max Size FAQ

If you wanting true NAS then you would want to get something like this:

USB drives are not NAS.

I do not think the links answer Skinny's question.  He already owns a WD MyCloud Nas (which is a true NAS, Ethernet not USB) and wants to know if there are limitations the DIr-882 will place on accessing it from inside and outside his network.

I have an 882 and 2 NAS, both larger than 4TB.  I have had no problems.  Perhaps you could describe or link to the challenges you have heard about.

FurryNutz:
If the NAS is true NAS then of course there shouldn't be any problems. Some MyCloud devcies are USB however and it wasn't specified if it was or not. So I posted links to USB side of the information.

If it's ethernet then he's good to go.

Enjoy.

SkinnyCyclist:
Thank you for your replies. Everything is working fine. The NAS is up and running and is slowly filling up with junk ;)
