There are lots of compact storage options. However, if you want something that shares with others, you need network-attached storage, better known as a NAS. Addonics Technologies can put networking features into any USB drive or micro SD card, with its new WiFi Drive Adapter.
The WiFi Drive Adapter is designed for file sharing, streaming audio and video, and more. Just plug the USB drive into the WiFi Drive Adapter and you can instantly access all of that content elsewhere in the home—and without wires.
Another nifty feature is that the WiFi Drive Adapter can create a wireless hot spot for connecting devices to the web. For instance, if you’re in a hotel, just hook the adapter to the web and you can share that connection with smartphones, tablets and computers.
According to Addonics, the WiFi Drive Adapter can support the IEEE802.11b/g/n standard with a range of 150 feet (in an open area). It also has one RJ-45 socket for an Ethernet connection.
Addonics is selling the WiFi Drive Adapter now, with an MSRP of $49.95.
