    Hello Mr. Lanston,
    Ignore if it’s a dumb question but I am new to NAS and home networking. In step 13, where I am supposed to open the NAS GUI by entering the new IP address 192.169.0.225, am I supposed to do it on a sperate machine attached to NAS machine via ethernet cable?

    Hi!
    Thanks for the great Tutorial. I must be doing something wrong. When I use the volume manager everything goes smooth but when I click “Add Volume” nothing happens. It just blinks then there is no volume saved. It doesn’t matter what I seem to do I get the same result. I’ve tried to to do it every which way to no avail.
    I’m using four identical 160gig HD’s. They are visible. I’ve tried to do it with the MB set to RAID in the bios, ACHI, IDE. Nothing seems to get me the result I need which is a saved volume. I’ve tried just one disk. I’ve tried unplugging all the HD’s except one.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Terie
