Feature Configuration

The initial configuration page had options for both wired and wireless settings, but I initially left the wired configuration in place and started exploring the other available options. Under the "Advanced" menu, I found a screen that would allow me to create new network shares and assign them either read-only or read-write privileges (see Figure 4).

This screen also allowed me to manage external drives plugged into the USB ports (see Figure 5). Drives formatted only with FAT and FAT32 filesystems are recognized. (The internal drive gets formatted with the ext3 filesystem.)

The "Tools" menu had a number of options. First was a screen that allowed me to set the time; this had a field to specify an NTP server for automatic time synchronization, but it didn't seem to take (see Figure 6). Even though I put in a server, the time was never set.
