Question by Alex V: Wireless Router or alternative for my home network?
I need a solution for networking my home.
I need a router (preferably n) that can:
1. connect via wire to 3 pc’s
2. connect wirelessly to my macbook and any additional laptops
3. be able to run a bit torrent client
4. be able to run a ed2k client
5. be able to run mirc through wine(also neads a X server)
6. have a usb port for an external hdd

here is what i found:
the Airport extreme base station N would fit : 2×256 ram, 500mhz proc but can you install linux on it?

the WRT350N from linksys(has storage link) doesn’t seam powerful enough- 32 or 16 ram
I have no idea about the wrt600N (also with storage link)

Also I know Asus manufactures some routers with usb ports but I don’t know the specs of those

A different solution would be to use an old second hand laptop(ebay) with linux or win xp but
where can I get a wireless PCMCIA or USB access point

Best answer:

Answer by Jag
Any IEEE 802.11n wireless router will provide you with answers for #1 and #2.

For 3, 4, and 5 you need a Linux box.

For 6:
The USB for external storage issue has a potential solution of a World Edition My Book from Western Digital. It has wireless functionality built in. So it can and will function as a network attached storage solution.

Your different solution wouldn’t provide it all in one box.

I’d suggest you get a D-Link DiR-655 wireless router.

You may want to find or build a very simple computer to install Linux on to give you the ed2k and WINE. You could also run a torrent client from that system.

All the best,

    Observed problem with Long Filenames; Warranty Repair is sluggish., March 29, 2013
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)


    I received my Seagate Business NAS (SBNAS) on February 26 of this year. It was a 2TB + 2TB Raid 1 (2 bay). The firmware was 2013.60193. I set up the Public folder with Media Server and Recycle Bin Manager enabled. I began using it by copying a number of music files and picture files from another NAS, and then extracting additional music files directly to the Seagate Business NAS. I was having difficulty getting the extraction process the way I wanted, so I ended up deleting a large number of music files, which went into the recycle bin. My first indication of trouble was when I discovered that I could not delete the files from the recycle bin. After a nice discussion with Seagate Technical support, we mutually agreed that the simplest thing would be to rebuild the volume on the SBNAS. I did this. (It took about 7 or 8 hours) The music files I was creating ended up having pretty long filenames, and I suspected that might be part of the problem. I did a lot of testing by varying the length of filenames and whether or not deleting these files caused difficulty with the Recycle Bin Manager. (In particular, the ability to Undelete). I was able to determine that if the filename plus extension was 127 characters or less, no problem occurred, but 128 characters or more caused problems. The additional length caused by folders names and a drive name did not seem to affect the 127/128 character filename breakpoint. I felt this information indicated a possible problem in the firmware, such as using a signed byte data rather than an unsigned byte or integer data type. I was not getting anywhere pursuing this theory with first line technical support, so on the third call ( on 03/13) I requested escalation. I explained my theory to this person, who agreed to try to duplicate my test results. I called once, a few days later and was told that no test results had been returned. I still have not heard of any results. (03/29).

    I rebuilt the volume again and planned to try to use the system, carefully avoiding long filenames. I had been using a 1 TB Seagate Backup Plus as a USM. I found out by testing, that doing a NAS to USM transfer would put the NAS into a state where it could not be rebooted or shut down. It could not even be shut down using the power button on the front of the system. Interestingly, doing the transfer did not cause this problem if the transfer was a small number of files. I was trying to back up the picture files on the NAS, and there was quite a large number of these. I did no tests to try to determine the break point.

    Since I had carefully avoided files with long names, in a discussion with Seagate Technical Support we mutually agreed that there could be a problem with the NAS itself, not necessarily the same problem as with the long filenames. After this conclusion I began the process of returning the NAS under warranty.

    I received confirmation from UPS that someone (HDZ) had signed for the NAS at 10:124 AM on 03/25/13. Thirty-six hours later, after checking the status on the Seagate Warranty Return Status web page, I saw that the status said that they were still waiting on return of the NAS. I called Warranty Service and spoke with someone who told me that my package was probably still on the dock, and that I would receive an email when they got to my NAS. I was also told that if I had not received an email by the middle of next week (which would be about 04/03/13)that I should call back.

    So, here it is over a month after receiving the NAS and I still do not have a working NAS. Actually, I don’t even have a NAS. Needless to say, I am not happy about the situation.

    I have read several of the other reviews here on Amazon, and no one seems to have had my problem. I agree on the poor quality of documentation noted by several others. I would have to add that I have experienced a lack of follow-through on the long filename testing issue, and a very sluggish response for warranty replacement. I do not feel that, at least based upon my experience with this single instance, that this product qualifies to be called a “Business” NAS. The limited hours for technical support would be an additional problem for a business.

    I am adding an ADDITIONAL COMMENT today (04/15/2013) concerning the sluggish response for warranty replacement. I would caution anyone considering a warranty exchange to call the warranty exchange department to verify that they have your product in their inventory. They received my returned Seagate Business NAS on 03/25/2013. Today, I received an email stating that “…unfortunately,we will most likely not have inventory for your drive for 2-3 weeks.” Since they received my drive about 3 weeks ago, they are saying that their current turnaround time for warranty exchange is about 5-6 weeks.

    I am adding an ADDITIONAL COMMENT today…

    The Dashboard Program Doesn’t Work and Seagate Technical Support Refuses to Deal With That, April 22, 2013
    Jay Morrison (Salt Lake City, Utah USA) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Do not buy this drive under any circumstances. It took forever to get it set up, and when
    that finally happened it just doesn’t work. I couldn’t use it as my primary media server
    because it kicks off line every two hours. I had to relegate it to doing backups only.
    Now I cannot even finish a Norton Backup before the damn thing kicks off line and must
    be rebooted. (this note was edited in after months of use)

    The Dashboard Program has a bug that prevents me from creating a shared folder. It refuses to
    recognize the Volume I have established nor will the Dashboard allow me to manually enter the
    volume number. All attempts to contact Seagate Technical Support
    either through Chat; or by eMail have failed because of technical problems with their
    site, I’m posting this here to try and contact them. If they don’t respond within the next
    three days I going to send the box back.

    I should also note that their technical support site does not even recognize that this
    product exists. They have downloads for the 4 bay and 1 bay Business Storage
    device but not the 2 Bay unit, so it is not possible to verity that the Firmware software
    is the current version.

    This Paragraph is added two weeks after the original review above. I have worked closely
    with Seagate technical support by telephone. The company refuses to deal with the problems.
    They have cost Amazon a lot of money having me replace pieces of their system when
    the problem is clearly in their firmware. Seagate refuses to attribute the problems
    to their firmware so I have no way of knowing if they are even
    working to solve the problems or when I can expect them to be fixed. Until those
    problems are fixed, my 8 terabytes of hard drives are inaccessible. I will acknowledge
    that their design is brilliant, it is much more that just a hard drive.
    It is also a fully functioning server as well. I has two USB ports and a slot for
    a 500 GB slimline USM drive that can be removed and plugged into any PC USB port.
    The server aspect of this storage device works well and is the only reason
    that I haven’t gotten rid of this box for a competitor’s storage unit.

    Ignore Seagate’s eye candy to follow this. The problem is not with
    my understanding how their system works. Telling me to go view their instillation
    videos has not solved the problems because their software does not work
    the way their videos portray. Telling me to call their technicians has
    not work because their technicians cannot solve the problem and only
    serve to cost their customers money on desperate solutions that
    can not and has not solved the problems.

    STBP8000100 is still a BETA product and should have never been released to public, May 1, 2013

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought the STBP8000100 about a month ago. This is the 4-bay 8TB model set up with Raid 5. As a file server it does a pretty good job. It seems fast enough and it’s very quiet. Other than that, I can’t say anything good about it. It was supposed to come with 10 backup licenses which it did not. Tech support did resolve this however. The USM slot is worthless with it’s current firmware level of 2013.60193. I was told there was going to be a firmware update in April and that never happen so here are the issues I see right now with it’s current firmware. When I purchased this NAS, I also bought a 1TB Backup Plus external USM drive to backup the NAS. It is SO SLOW. I have about 650GB on the NAS and the backup estimates 115 hours to complete. It didn’t take that long but it did take about 7 hours. I was concerned that the backup was no good so checked all the files and it seemed OK. For my next test, I deleted one of the folders from the USM drive and ran another backup. It did not replace the missing folder leading me to believe that the backups of my NAS were not reliable. I created a automatic backup job to backup my NAS to the USM drive daily. It never runs unless you press the button to run it manually. I decided to setup a One Touch backup (which really takes 8 touches)so I can run it from the front of the NAS without loading the software interface. It appears to run, but with the same issues I have when I run it manually. I say it appears to run because you can’t tell unless you open the software to see the status. This NAS has an LED screen on the front that gives NO INFORMATION about what’s doing. Sure would be nice if the screen displayed NAS>USM BACKING UP NOW when it was backing up the NAS to the USM drive. You really have no idea when it’s done or if it’s safe to pull the USM drive out since it is so quiet you can tell. Currently this drive should not be on sale and it’s a disgrace to Seagate. Hopefully the firmware update that was supposed to be released in April will solve these problems. Until you see a firmware update later than 2013.60193, I would steer clear of this NAS. It’s got potential, but I had a hard time giving this device even a single star. And, by the way, I have called Seagate multiple times and they say they know of these issues and cannot help until the new firmware hits.
