Re: Need Recommendations for Nas and Wifi hardware for Small Office Workgroup
Posted on 2012-09-20
I have a small branch office that regularly has 8 -12 users in it and maybe a few
times a month the amount goes up to 15-18 users. The network is set up as a
workgroup. The office will be downsizing in the next year so I'm keeping them on the workgroup. I want to setup a NAS server in order for the users to do some
file sharing and a backup of their files. The second part is I need to set up wifi
access for both the workgroup and a guest wifi.
For the NAS I have been looking at the Buffalo Link Station Duo, Synology Diskstation DS712, and BlackArmor NAS 440. Has any one out there used these products?
And what was your experience with them like? I'm hoping to get something that
has software that is easy to maneuver. Any recommendations?
As far as the Wifi I've heard there are wifi routers out there with a guest account
on them. It's a large 2 story building so I'll definitely need a device upstairs and down. Does anyone know of models that have a guest wifi account on them?
I would really appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you
