4) Is network file browsing on the MG-350HD as slow as the NAS firmware hack is reported to be on the MG-35?
5) What is the nature of the Wireless network with the MG-350HD? Is it ad-hoc or infrastructure? In other words, if I have an existing Wifi infrastructure network running from a wireless router, will the MG-350HD find it and connect to it? Can the MG-350HD connect to this network if it uses a WEP/WPA key? How is this entered into the MG-350HD? Can any PCs on the same network browse / copy from / copy to the MG-350HD?
Any help greatly appreciated!
1. - Yes, using NDAS. This is a Windows driver that makes the remote MG-350HD appear as a local external hard drive on your PC. However, it's very slow. Can't remember the speed, but I definitely got less than half a MB per sec.
2. - yes, same as (1) above.
3. - I don't think so.
4. Slow, but I haven't seen the MG-35.
5. The MG-350HD can be configured to use either ad-hoc or infrastructure. It supports WEP, but not WPA. Being a tad optimistic, many devices initially ship with support for WEP only, and later provide WPA support through firmware/driver updates. Here's hoping! The WEP key is entered through the remote control, using up/down the cursor keys to increment/decrement the current char through 0-9, a-f.
