    hi, absolute newbie not sure if this can be done or not but can the nas200 be made to use a usb hub and handle more than 2 usb drives at once

    Unfortunately this is not possible with the standard firmware. The NAS simply won't find the drives when they're on a hub so it won't share them as a network share. I think Sercomm/Linksys/Cisco did this to keep their software simple.

    My firmware also won't do it because it's based on the stock kernel and software, but it may be possible to log in through SSH and manually mount a drive that's on a hub onto a point in the file system that's already shared.
