The NAS3.0 adapter is a flexible, economical and powerful unit for your Network.
Follow the instructions to help you connect, setup, and configure it.
Note: Any external USB storage device that you connect to the NAS 3.0 adapter
is required to be pre-formatted with either NTFS, FAT32 or FAT64. When the external
USB storage device is connected to the NAS 3.0 adapter, it creates a configuration
file and a default Public folder.
If you are connecting an external USB drive with data on it, all the data will remain on
the drive but the NAS cannot see those data unless transferred to the Public folder.
Network Environment
There are 3 different setup conditions you can choose:
A.
Setup NAS30U2 as a DHCP Client:
If the NAS30U2 is connected to a LAN network with an active
DHCP server, it will obtain an IP address from DHCP server
automatically.
B.
Setup NAS30U2 as DHCP Server:
If your LAN network does not have an active DHCP server, the
NAS30U2 will immediately act as DHCP server and assign itself an
IP address for installation.
C.
Setup NAS30U2 in Static IP environment:
You first need to configure the IP address for NAS30U2 to operate
in the static IP environment. For Configuring details, please refer to
“LAN Config” setup page.

PPPoE Setting
PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is an internet connection

Status: Display PPPoE connection status.
Service Name: It’s an optional field. Place any name you want that
will help you remember the configuration.
Account Name: Enter your user name provided by your ISP.
Password: Enter your password provided by your ISP.
Service on Demand: The router will ONLY connect itself to your ISP when
there’s internet request demanded by any LAN user and disconnect itself
when the transaction is done.
Idle Time (Seconds): Idle time means the storage will disconnect itself from
the ISP after being idle for a specific time. If the time is set to 0, the storage
will not disconnect itself.
Max Connection Time (Hours): A specific time that indicate how long the
storage can stay connection with ISP.
IP Address Negotiation: IP Address and Subnet Mask should be assigned
within the same network as the PPPoE-enabled DSL modem.
Fixed IP Address: Use to assign an IP address manually.
AC Name: It’s an optional field. Use to configure an access concentrator
(AC) name on the PPPoE interface.
WAN IP: It shows what the storage’s current IP address is.
DDNS Setting
DNS service (Domain Name System) is used for the conversion of IP
addresses from domain names to the numeric format. This means that there
is no need to keep in mind the address 62.122.129.15, but it is sufficient to
remember www.xxxx.com. Translation of the domain name into the set of
numbers is performed by the appropriate DNS server, to which the computer
sends a request for the translation of the address. After receiving the
response with the numeric address, the computer connects to the relevant
computer/server.
