SIG Computing Topic: Add NAS to your Router

Presented by John Krout

Modern home routers do more than give your computers and other digital devices access to the Internet. With a key feature now commonly found on modern home routers, you can attach a storage device called Network-Attached Storage (NAS) for shared access by your computers and other digital devices. That becomes a very fast backup device compared to cloud-based backups. Learn how to find out if your router has what it takes, how to set up and connect to an inexpensive test NAS, and how to find out if your router allows you to access your NAS on the go, via the Internet.

John is a retired software engineer. During his career, he worked on contract for federal government agencies around Washington DC. He began writing about creative uses of personal computers in the early 1980s. As a retiree since 2020, he has more time to write and deliver presentations, and has added topics on smart phones, tablets and digital cameras and camcorders. He lives in Arlington VA, and hopes to relocate to the US West in the next year or two.
