Vero Newbie - Network Advice

Hi all, a complete Vero / Android / Kodi newbie here, for the last ~10 years ive always stuck with popcorn hour and currently have a VTEN.

Ive decided this time round I wanted something a bit different and the Vero was one of the obvious choices, mainly down to output auto switching and this great / active community.

Ive just ordered a Vero 4K + Wifi dongle and am after some advice on the best possible setup to kick it off.
Im starting to expand my 4K collection with a number of these will soon be HDR. All my videos are stored on my Synology NAS which im happy to use NFS and give my Vero a fixed IP.

I have a 802.11ac wireless access point ~2 feet from my media player and wondered for speed whether this would be a better solution over the wired connection? Note, the access point then goes off over 1GB Ethernet to my NAS.
My whole home is wired in gigabit Ethernet.
I thought about purchasing a 802.11ac wifi dongle for my NAS but USB port on my NAS is only 2.0.

Any comments / suggestions greatly welcome.


This is a bit confusing. Is the NAS 1GB capable? If so then a AC dongle would be useless.

If you are asking to use wired or AC on the 4K, with it that close to the router Iā€™d say to stick with wired. It should be able to handle any current 4K content (other than some test vids) out there.

Yes, the NAS is 1GB capable.
My understanding is that the Vero 4K didnt have gigabit ethernet, therefore using the AC wifi dongle might offer a faster network connection?

Yes ā€” it may do, but is subject to more influence environmentally

Vero 4K has built in AC. but you should not need it if the 4K can be wired.
