What is the particular problem?
Where do you need 64k? (is it 8kB ?)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFS#Variable_block_sizes

it is 64kb is you format iSCSI volume using NTFS
otherwise - it displays fake value to make windows happy.

i explained the same.

XFS allows block sizes from disk block (512) to 64kB dynamically, without configuration.
In case it runs under 64kB formatted iSCSI NTFS block sizes will be 64kB, or less if write operation does not fill the block.
BTW 64kB makes 2 SCSI commands, so 32kB is better in most cases.

So - it is well suited for your needs without any extra effort.

iSCSI or shares?
Can you help me with pointer to exact products you are using?
buffalo runs linux and can provide iscsi, nfs or smb, each has many blocksize settings possible....

gheistCommented:
You are too overhelmed with idea of reinstalling NAS controller.
NAS works other way
It serves iSCSI volume over network, which windows accesses with disk driver called iSCSI initiator and can format with NTFS, ExFAT, FAT 16 or anything else you like. It is not dependent on underlying technology.
Ask your vendor if it can access NTFS on iSCSI NAS.
