Connected ethernet RJ-45:
Marrantz NR1504 AV-Reciever
Freecom-Media 1TB NAS
2 x Windows Desktop PC
2 x iPhone 5
MS Surface RT
I'm going to create a guest-network (another 2,4Ghz) with the wireless Modem/router my providers sent me. So I don't have to worry about guests. Security would be used with WPA2/PSK or maybe even with MAC-filtering.
This is going to be a home-network which will mostly be used for streaming media to my PopcornHour of Marrantz. I'm also going to be gaming a lot. Both 5Ghz and 2,4Ghz has to be in the same network as all ethernet connected devices. I'm going to control a lot with iPhone and iPad apps.
I have a Linksys 8-port gigabit switch to fit all the ehternet connected devices.
I'm using a TP-Link range extender TL-WA830RE to make the 2,4Ghz band reach my 2nd floor.
I want to know what the possibilities are for FTP-shares hosted by the router itself. I've read that it's possible, but don't know much about it. I currently use the Freecom-Media I mentioned above, but this NAS hardly reaches 5 mb/s read and write. The disk has a USB connection for faster speeds, and wondered if I could put that USB in a router for a faster share. If those routers reach higher speeds, which one would be best.
I'm dutch, so I linked the sites I would buy them.
I can't really tell differences, and am not sure what I should look for. Can anyone tell me if this is suitable for my needs, and which one is best. Maybe even give new suggestions. Any help would be awesome.
