NT2 LAN

As of July 1, 2013, the NT2 LAN has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The NT2 LAN was a dual-bay network drive with built-in UPnP-AV media server designed for two 3.5" hard disk drives. It came with a web based file browser and media player to manage and playback media files.

There is no new version available for this particular model. As an alternative, please consider the MyCloud Duo, which is based on a new and more advanced operating system. It's also designed to house two 3.5" hard disk drives and it comes with a web based file browser and many more web applications.

802.11ac Home WiFi

This is the story of my quest to achieve better transfer rates on my wireless home network. The goal was to reduce the time it takes to download and backup files from my mobile devices to the network attached MyCloud Pro.

Until recently, the wireless connection on all of my mobile devices like the iPhone 5 and iPad 4 was based on the 802.11a/b/g/n standard but I've always wondered if it would make a difference if I upgraded the old wireless router (AP) from 802.11a/b/g/n to 802.11ac (Draft) /n/a/g/b. In short, the answer is YES.

Following is a summary of my experience with before and after results. Of course, upgrading just the AP alone is only half the fun, so I'm now also the proud owner of a mobile device (Padfone Infinity from Asus) that is capable of making full use of the new 802.11ac standard.
