MyCloudNAS Service Router Setup

 

The router portion was always the part that made people pull out their hair in the past. Well not anymore! QNAP's software is now smart enough to locate your router on the network and then configure it through the UPnP feature.

Quite literally your router is setup and configured in two clicks. The first is to get to the page and the second is used to tell the magic to happen.

When the software is finished, a process that takes less than three seconds, you can click on a confirmation screen and see your router details. My DLink DGL-4500 isn't exactly a new model either. This unit was discontinued last year and was on the market for several years before that.

At this point everything is finished - you are setup, everything is configured and you are ready to access your data from anywhere in the world. At any point you can go back and make changes.

The software allows you to disable features as well and the whole process is very easy.

If you would like to share data with other users or create different log in IDs, that is possible as well.
