comment Help with my network setting/connection. I need to connect my Laptop to my Desktop
Try making a folder on one of your computers "shared" and then find the name of your computer. You can then usually map to it by putting the address, i.e. \\MY-PC-NAME\PATH-TO-FOLDER-ON-DISK

comment Should I include my OS partition on my RAID or separate hard drive?
I don't really have a great answer for this. This has to do with ease of rebuilding the array if there happens to be a failure, or if you want to migrate the array. Another possibility might be to have the OS mirrored (using RAID 1) and use the rest of the disks for RAID 5. That way both your data and OS are protected against 1 disk failure, each.

comment MacBook Pro can ping to hosts but not browse via WiFi
In the OP post it says tried "Changing browsers" and can connect using "another (Windows) laptop" It's doubtful that this is a router or browser problem.
