Works as promised......12/23/2012
The physical connections are easy, installing the the software was easy.......mapping and assigning drive letters, easy. The trick for me was to configure web access, tried the included instructions, fail. Apparently I had to change my router settings to allow UPnP.....I struggled a bit with this, each time I would make a change I would retry the web access easy setup and every time it failed. I finally decided to use the advanced manual setup of the web access and that seemed to work...SUCCESS!!!! I then customized a few settings to get away from the defaults that are the same on each buffalo station and I was good to go. Next I installed the Web Access app for my iPad and was up and running on that in a matter of a couple of minutes. For some reason the Buffalo apps had very bad reviews, but both of them worked fine for me.... In short this works as described, the only complained I have is that their help pages online are done in a small font and my eyes could uses some help... :)
