Running The Setup Wizard
Once the setup wizard is off and running it will automatically try to discover the device on the network for you. Pick the NAS server you want to configure and hit next.
Next the wizard will ask you for a password even though you haven't setup a password yet. The default account and password are both 'admin'.
Next up is the network configuration and it is here that you get to name your N5200 and configure the network IP address. If your switch or router is configured as a DHCP Server, configuring the N5200 to automatically obtain an IP address is recommended. You may also use a static IP address and enter the DNS Server address manually.
The last step in the wizard allows you to change the admin password, which is something you should obviously do.
