Despite the lack of taste of the prior comment, I think the guy has a point.
This isn't that much of a new.
HOWEVER, its great to see advances from WD in the connectivity area. As one of the founders of storage and transfer methods (Parallel-ATA, and other related protocols) its a huge gap you must fill right now. Sure, the guys at WD make IMO the best hard drives, but what about linking together your storage to make it actually work?
Networking is closely tied to storage.
Glad to hear about this, even if it isnt really news, is relevant for the company.
other extenders cut the data transfer speeds in half which is FAIL by design... and a waste of money to boot.
you're better off using a second router... there are guides on the internet on how to do this.
p.s. this article (advertisement) reads like it was written by someone who is computer illiterate (WD marketing dept)
wha??? no usb port... how dumb. It's trash, wouldn't pay for this plastic tonka toy. I agree that just buy another router and set it up as gateway. I've done it and it works.... can't believe they try to push this out w/out a USB port.... how friggin lame can ya get. WD ....YOU KNOW BETTER!
Lets just hope its not the code junkie kiddy's behind the WDLive Plus because if they are, I wouldn't give
this device to anyone. I have little or no hope on devices like this coming from WD Good Luck.
