Long story short, I bought a DNS-313. But now I find out that the SMB protocol it use is for some reason incompatible with Lion- Lion keeps saying that I don't have permission to access the disk, even though the disk is set to allow R/W by everyone and has no password (this is only a test setup using a old 120GB disk while I wait for HDD price to go back down- this NAS itself I found at All IT going for crazy low price).
Big headache, Mac Mini with Lion cannot access the drive with Finder. Other computers can access, even Mac OS 9 equipped with Dave can access the drive without problem.
From what I understand, the problem is due in part to D-Link's implementation of SMB. But also due to Apple dropping Samba from Lion and developing a in-house replacement that does not have all the features Samba has, one of which needed to work around the DLink bug.
Already tried Dave for Mac OS X Lion. Doesn't help. Only two things that works is MuCommander, and even that it's not stable, or use terminal and POSIX commands (rm, cp, mv, ls, cd) after mounting disk, even if Finder says I have no permission.
Yes, I considered Webian. But then Webian is hosted on Megaupload instead of a proper file hosting system like Sourceforge for some reason Cannot access Megaupload even when change DNS on Yes
