    I'm trying to build a raid 5 USB storage system to connect to an AirPort Extreme router. I am currently looking into buying the following enclosure and adding software to create a raid 5 storage solution which I can connect to the AE for both backup and media storage. Can someone help me find good software to create this raid 5 setup?

    I am not sure you can add software to that enclosure, since it seems to be only an enclosure. You will be able to set up a software raid only when it is attached to a computer directly.
    For a RAID 5 solution you will need a hardware raid.
