The Wireless Space is also available in a 1 TB capacity.

Built-In Wi-Fi b/g/n and Four Gigabit Ethernet Ports

The Wireless Space supports different wireless modes and can act as a standard wireless access point and router, a wireless extender to connect your printers or computers, or as a wireless access point and switch.

Access Your Files from Anywhere

In addition to providing a networked connection to all of your home computers, the Wireless Space features Remote Access, which allows you to log in to your Wireless Space from anywhere you have an Internet connection. When you're on the road and need that important document, simply log in to your Wireless Space and get the file you need.

Three USB 2.0 Ports for Storage Expansion

For additional functionality, the Wireless Space includes three USB 2.0 ports, letting you connect additional hard drives for storage expansion, direct backup, and file transfer.

Stream Your Media Wirelessly

The Wireless Space has a built-in iTunes server, allowing computers with iTunes to stream music directly from the networked drive. It can also stream music and video to any connected computer, as well as to a networked UPnP/DLNA-certified player or adapter, such as a Playstation3 or Xbox.

The Wireless Space requires the latest version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6, or Linux 2.6. It also requires a computer with a network adapter, and a UPnP/DLNA-compliant device when streaming media.

I have the 1 TB model, and set it up as a NAS & wireless router. I simply scrapped my previous router & used the Lacie with the same wifi network name & settings I had on my previous router, which lacked b/g AND n wifi modes (have been reaching n speeds of 65 Mbps!). Forget what the others have said, I advise u to download the entire Users Manual PDF (about 10Mb) from Lacie.com to avoid annoying hassles, because the package only comes with the Quick Start guide for some reason. The actual Wireless Space User Manual is VERY easy to follow, and actually states that there are 5 different modes or configurations that u can set it up for (I chose to use it as a NAS & Router), and was set up in 15 minutes, using the NAS and wifi ID (SSID or your wifi network name) and settings that I chose for it. I'm no IT guy, merely an intermediate PC User at best, and networking this was no problem once I read the User Manual BEFORE my delivery arrived, so that I already knew which configuration and directions I wanted to use. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO READ THE MANUAL FIRST, not just the Quick Start giude that came with it, as the manual explicitly tells u when to install the devices software and then connect the ethernet cable from your original modem (provided by your ISP or Cable provider). This is where other reviewers of the Wireless Space must have made mistakes and ran into the configuration problems that they did. EVEN IF U ARE AN EXPERT, DO NOT IMMEDIATELY PLUG THE WIRELESS SPACE INTO UR PC AND THEN INSTALL THE SOFTWARE!Read more ›

Size: 1 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Today's test is utilizing the "LaCie Wireless Space 1 TB Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet Network Attached Storage 301932", a sleek looking device designed by Neil Poulton that can be utilized via Wi-Fi and Ethernet and can serve as a:

* Extension of your Wi-Fi Router
* Central wireless harddrive backup for your devices on your network
* 1TB Media server
* Time Machine compatible for Mac devices and also comes with a Genie Timeline Software for scheduled backups on the PC.

After reading the reviews on Amazon and other forums, I admit that I wasn't quite sure why people had difficulty with this device. I have had Lacie devices before and have had no troubles whatsoever with them.

Out of the box, you have your device, your plugin outlet which comes with various adapters for those living in different countries. This was a nice addition to the package. Also included is the software which comes with the Wireless Space Setup, Lacie Network Assistant and Intego Backup Assistant. Also, the CD has documents for the product.

It also comes with a Ethernet adapter but my purpose was using this as a wireless device. If you plan to use Ethernet, I recommend using your own cable if it is long as this one is not too long.

MY SETUP INCLUDES:

1 iMac, another Mac, 1 Toshiba PC Laptop, 1 Compaq PC Laptop, iPad, Nook and Android Netbook

I. INSTALLATION:

Installing the software, everything installed just fine. NOTE: It requires you to use your router user name and password. NOTE 2: It is very important to select the right setting. Do you want this device to be used as a router? Or do you want to use it as a central backup device?

Size: 1 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am using this device as a backup device and a wi-fi extender. I am using this with a Mac Mini and Time Machine backup. The total set up time was about an hour and a half. Like other reviewers, I had a lot of trouble getting the network assistant to find the device. Somewhere between quitting all apps and restarting the LaCie, I was able to find the device. I also had some issues figuring out how to login but this might have been brain fog on my part (user name admin then password!) After that, set up went reasonably well-no other hiccups for me. I was able to pretty easily backup my system using Time Machine.

The device is working well for me. After the frustration of set-up, I am not having any other issues. The system is working as advertised as both a back up and wi-fi extender. All in all, I am reasonably happy. I will update this review as I continue to use the device but so far I am a happy camper.

I'm a systems administrator and experienced with network setups. But this was by far one of the most miserable setup experiences I've ever had. The process is excessively convoluted. Moreover, it is setup to automatically use an IP address which very likely will either conflict with your existing router, or will be within a range outside your current DHCP range setup.

The only way to remedy the problem is to connect the device directly to your router from the get-go as a basic NAS wired setup, and then use the administrative interface via the web browser to make any changes to get it assigned to a static IP (what I wanted in my case), and/or configure it to act as a standalone wireless client. After hours of messing around with this thing, that is the only way I got it to work the way it was advertised.

Once setup as a standalone wireless NAS, it is PATHETICALLY SLOW even with fairly small files. Honestly, except as archive or backup I don't know how it could ever practically function in a streaming capacity. Another workaround for this issue, is if you have a wireless bridge-repeater (flashed for instance with DDWRT), hook it by wire to that. You will find improved performance in that configuration, as I suspect the antenna within the unit are under designed to provide respectable bandwidth.

Pros:

Storage capacity for the money (2TB)
Looks pretty
Functions OK when wired directly to router or bridge-repeater

Cons:

Horrible convoluted setup
Crud software
Inability to adjust or assign a static IP during initial setup

I honestly CANNOT recommend this unit to anyone.

UPDATE:

Well, I had so many reliability, connectivity, and speed issues with this unit I finally gave up on it. I would advise anyone interested in a home or small office NAS to consider one of the products made by Synology - they are fantastic.
