From the Manufacturer
The LaCie 2 TB Wireless Space brings network-attached storage to the next level by integrating it with a wireless router. With the Wireless Space, you'll have just one device that is both a centralized storage for all your media and a wireless router that makes creating a home network easy.
LaCie 2 TB Wireless Space
2 TB of Wireless Storage for All Your Networked Computers
With the LaCie Wireless Space, you'll have 2 TB of centralized storage that can be accessed by all of your networked computers. Setup is easy. Simply connect the Wireless Space to your cable modem, or other network connection, and you'll have both a wireless network and centralized storage that is accessible by all computers on the network. It features 2 TB of space, enough to hold 2,800 movies, 600,000 songs, or 600,000 photos. If you already have a wireless network, you can easily set up the Wireless Space as wireless storage, allowing wireless access from computers on your network.
The Wireless Space is also available in a 1 TB capacity.
Built-In Wi-Fi b/g/n and Four Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Featuring a built-in wireless router, the Wireless Space makes it easy to create a wireless home network and share an internet connection, along with centralized storage, for all the computers in your home. The Wireless Space supports 802.11 b/g/n for extensive compatibility and has Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for push-button security. For those who need the security and speed of a wired connection, it also has 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.
Secure Backup for PCs and Macs
Use the Wireless Space to easily back up your computers. For Mac users, it offers Time Machine compatibility for exceptional convenience. And for both Mac and PC owners, it lets you create public and private shares, allowing for different access permissions for different users.
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.
Stylish Design by Neil Poulton
The stylish Wireless Space was designed by Neil Poulton and features a sophisticated all-black, mirror-polished finish that blends into your multimedia setup. It has a distinctive blue LED strip on the underside that creates an ambient glow, and a touch-sensitive WPS button.
The drive is engineered without a fan for near-silent operation and efficient power usage. Stylish without being obtrusive, it measures 1.8 by 4.6 by 7.6 inches (H x W x D).
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.

* 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
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?Read more ›
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.
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.
Storage capacity for the money (2TB)
Functions OK when wired directly to router or bridge-repeater
Horrible convoluted setup
Inability to adjust or assign a static IP during initial setup
I honestly CANNOT recommend this unit to anyone.
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.
