After the parts are put together and the system is turned on for the first time you have to login to the NAS Server. You need to connect the N4200 to your network by plugging it in via LAN to WAN cable to either your computer or the network. The system starts up and loads the operating system. After itís fully on and connected the default login address is 192.168.1.100.

At this point you need to set up the system. The N4200 supports RAID 0,1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD modes. For purposes of this review we installed two 2TB Western Digital Caviar HDDs. After logging in I was able to set them up in RAID 0 in a matter of hours. One thing Thecus could have done is give a status bar to show the progress of setting up RAID, but the process was easy and pretty fast for such a large set of HDDs.
