  1. I don't see my reply here so I may have forgotten to hit submit. Your suggestion absolutely worked. The second cable allowed me to see what the IP address on the new NIC. Thanks a ton for your help and expertise!!! -Peter
  2. I installed Xpenology DSM 6.1-15047 on an AMD desktop successfully. Everything has been working fine with one exception. The motherboard is an ECS A880LM-M with an AMD Phenom II 6 core processor and 16G of RAM. The issue is the onboard LAN is only 100 Mbps so transfer speeds are bottle necked by this.

For grins I disconnected the two HDs I want to use for storage and plugged in one SSD
