This small screen lets you perform the entire configuration process without firing up a PC. This guide will run you through the setup process for an ASUSTOR NAS with or without an LCD.

How to set up and connect to your ASUSTOR NAS

Using the LCD

If the ASUSTOR NAS you own has a display, it's a seamless process. Here's how to get it up and running:

  1. Turn on the NAS.
  2. Wait for the unit to complete its boot sequence.
  3. Check the display and confirm the setup process.
  4. Copy the IP address displayed on-screen and load it on your favorite browser.
  5. Login credentials are:
    • User: admin
    • Password: admin

  1. You should now be greeted by ADM and are ready to go.

I strongly advise you to head into the account settings of the admin account and change the password from what's set as default. This will provide an additional layer of security for your NAS.

Using your PC

  1. Turn on the NAS.
  2. Look up the IP using your router or download ASUSTOR's desktop tool to search.
  3. Load the IP address in your favorite browser.
  4. Follow the initial setup wizard to configure the NAS.
