NAS Drive or Media Server for BT Hub 2 Latest May 2020

Go to solution

I would like to set up network storage (NAS) and potential media server (PLEX) attached to new BT Home Hub 2 Latest Release.

Are there any best options or configs that will work best.

 

Any advice and information greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply, does that mean it's not possible to set up NAS from the BT USB ? or it will just work like a dog ?

Are you connecting the NAS to an Ethernet port or the USB port? It would be normal to connect a NAS to an Ethernet port. Its not really a NAS per se if you intend to just connect a USB device to the hub.

If you do just intend to connect USB device, it will be extremely slow as the USB port is only USB2 and also you will need to enable SMB1 in your devices

Hi There,Thanks for clarifying that, if the fastest option would be to connect the NAS to Ethernet then that's what I will do. Hopefully the speeds there would be decent enough.

My NAS plugs into an ethernet port, works fine.
