Download Firmware D-LINK DNS-325 NAS. Today we present an approach focussing intensively using your home computer and internet network. The D-Link NAS we discussed today, DNS-325 model is able to integrate up to 4TB capacity within two hard drives of 2TB capacity. This NAS has a multitude of options thanks to software that incorporates such as creating RAIDs to provide greater security of our data if a hard drive fails. It also incorporates a manager HTTP and FTP downloads, a Bittorrent client, FTP and NFS servers. This equipment is aimed at average users since its installation is very simple. For advanced users recommend creating a home NAS from 0 in which we can get a lot more software and do from Radius servers to mount a DLNA, and above all, we all (and manual) control of all internal processes.

The main features of the NAS, as it is capable of storing up to 4TB in 2 hard drives, Gigabit connectivity or that has a Media Server for movies besides many other features.

As you can see, also has print server if you have a printer that is only USB. With NAS, come warranty papers, an installation CD, a cable network rather long to connect wherever you have installed, and the power adapter.

Here is a front view of NAS, at the bottom we see the power LED, hard drive right (RIGHT), USB hard disk and finally left (LEFT). Nor will see much LEDs as they usually will not see because we will place under the table and not above it … we have enough stuff on the tables to also put the NAS. The right side of the NAS, we can see how the shell is removed to insert the hard drives inside. At the back we can see the fan to evacuate hot air from inside. A nice touch for that hard drives do not catch high temperatures.
