Patriot Gauntlet Node Portable Wireless 2.5″ HDD Enclosure Review


Typing “http://10.10.10.254” into your browser provides access to the ‘Gauntlet Connect’ user interface. Security and settings can be changed from this interface – we opted for a password-protected WPA2-PSK configuration. The Gauntlet Node’s status and connected devices can also be viewed.

Using a Windows computer, access to the Gauntlet Node’s streamed files can be obtained by typing “\\10.10.10.254” into the Windows search box. OSX users must treat the Gauntlet Node as a server, selecting the “Connect to Server” input before typing “smb://10.10.10254” in the “Server Address” space.

Connection instructions are provided in the manual and Patriot does a good job at making them easy to understand.
