Default Linksys NSLU2 Storage Link


"Linksys today announced the Linksys Network Storage Link, which enables users to affordably add gigabytes of storage space to wireless or fixed networks.

The Linksys Network Storage Link (NSLU2) is a fast, simple, flexible and economical way to add storage to your network. The Storage Link has two USB ports for connecting USB 1.1 or 2.0 external hard drives. One USB port can also be used for connecting today’s popular USB memory sticks. When the Storage Link is attached to a router or switch through the built-in 10/100 Ethernet RJ-45 port, everyone on the network can share the drives. For example, a Maxtor OneTouch USB 2.0 external hard drive connected to the Storage Link provides shared network attached storage starting around $250. Users may also set up the Storage Link so that the USB drives can be accessible from the Internet – files can be easily downloaded via a web browser. Files can be public, or password-protected for authorized users. "

For those wanting to add more hard drive storage to their network, but not open their computer, this $99 network storage appliance interface might just fit the bill. Rather than share a drive off of a computer and having to make sure that computer is running all the time, Linksys' Storage Link plugs into any router or other network interface and can be shared to all. Remote administration appears easy, with email alerts to tell you when you are running low on space. Drawbacks include having to spend $250 on an external USB hard drive, no wireless built in, and the fear of a letter from SCO demanding you pay hundreds of dollars for the Linux based OS.
