Summary: First I could not get this drive to connect to my wireless network (Verizon Fios) which is what I bought it for. So ended up just connecting it via ethernet to the router. It took about 5 or 6 days to back up 600gb over the network (wireless from the computer to the router).

The wireless space configuration software does not recognize the unit and the instructions are poor.
Summary: Network attached storage on a wireless router is the concept of LaCie's Wireless Space- good one. However, this device has inherent flaws and shouldn't be on the market- at least until the flaws are addressed. The flaws are too big to ignore.
