Hi all. I’ve just received the PR4100 (didn’t do much research on it, it was suggested by a tech guy) and I’m now facing some basic questions.
I think who has and intermediate/advanced knowledge on that should be able to easily answer to me. Let’s say I’m just new to NAS for this purpose.
I edit videos on my MacBook Pro (so no wired ethernet).
I wish I could use the PR4100 for video work, but I can’t easily find some very (basic!) information like:
PR4100 has 2 ethernet ports, what speed are supported? Is 2,5GBe supported? 5GBe? 10GBe?
I’ve already read some posts where experts say you shouldn’t directly connect to your computer. Why so? Because the mac would then unable to connect to the internet? And what if I connect the 2nd port of the PR4100 to my router?
I have a 1GBe router, what if I buy a 10GBe switch, connect the PR4100 to it, my mac via usb ethernet adapter to it, and then the switch to my router? Would I have both 10GBe transfer speed, and the internet?
I thought this would solve my storage needs… but I’m not so sure, please help!
