If you have used a Synology router or storage appliance in the past, this interface is very familiar. On the left side, we have a few desktop icons or shortcuts, while the very top corner houses the menu button for a closer look.
In that closer look, you will find all available shortcuts including file station, package center, and the control panel along with tools and network center.
The package center has a few options going for it at this point including VPN Server, DNS Server, and Intrusion Prevention. Those are in addition to the standard download station and media server found on most Synology products.
Diving into the control panel, you can setup users and more advanced LDAP and Domain access via this menu.
The storage menu will give an overview of any device connected. Above, I have an SD card setup.
With their heavy storage background, Synology treats their USB and SD card connectivity like it was a NAS giving you options for SMB and AFP along with FTP and even Bonjour functionality.
Sliding down to devices, you can customize the front mounted LEDs to suit your needs.
In the System menu, you can update the firmware, backup config settings, and restore.
Moving on to the Network Center, we have a quick status screen.
The wireless menu, give you access to the SSID and password settings along with the Smart Connect feature at the top.
Parental controls allow you to target any specific device and control the amount of time it's on the web along with creating filters for that device.
