Corza Gigabit Support (and other)
OK, so I bought this corza thing yesterday. I have a gigabit switch, gigabit laptop, and supposedly now a gigabit corza.
Here's the real kicker. The corza only negotiates at 100 mb / full. I have even forced the switch to negotiate at 1 G (there is no half in 1 G). (please don't tell me to force it, i know it is bad practice).
Then I upgraded the firmware to 1.51B. Still no luck.
Then I decided to go ahead and see if I could somehow restart the network interface on the corza and force it to be 1 GB. I found out how to telnet into the box and was greeted with a BusyBox 1.00 rc3 kernel. (by the way, the root password is set to admin if anyone is guessing). RC3???? This product is running on a release candidate?
The network interface on the box is munged and very hard to figure out, so I was not able to force this thing to come up gigabit.
So, I backed the firmware down (or *upgraded* it back) to 1.5. Still no gigabit.
Ok, so maybe this wasn't the smartest purchase that I have ever made, but is there at least a way to enable the USB port to hook up to my machine directly? I cannot transfer 1 TB over a 100 MB connection. It is going to take a lifetime.
Or maybe you can send me the internal hardware specs and I should write my own kernel?
Or maybe I should just return this thing. I don't know.
we all have the same problem. You should know that the corza isn't the most expensive NAS there is.
We are all hoping that there will be a patch for 1000mbit. But who knows maybe the hardware doesn't allow it. 1Gbit doesn't mean it transfers with 1Gbit it only tells you that is supports 1Gbit networks.
If you really want a fantastic NAS you will have to pay more then 200 (or less) bucks and buy one for about 700 - 1500 bucks
I agree it sucks but in my opinion put a great product on the market for a fair price.
