Cannot Upload files larger than 4gb to my NAS!

One reason for buying a NAS was so I can upload, remotely, to my NAS, various files/documents etc. I tried to UL a 5GB file but received an error message saying files larger that 4096kb (I seem to remember) are not allowed!! :-0 :x Surely this is some mistake, I hope? I can UL any size of file to my friends Synology NAS, so why not QNAP? I also tried a similar file to my other friends QNAP 251A, but that also failed - WTF?? I hope this is a bug, or can be fixed, or else the 251D is going back, to be replaced with a Synology unit!
