WD beams in 802.11n Wi-Fi stations

Time Capsule clone too

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Hard drive maker WD is extending its reach in home networking. Already a provider of powerline Ethernet kit, it's now going to offer wireless routers, including one with on-board storage.

The MyNet family comprises four 802.11 dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz routers with three to four antennae for 300Mbps or 450Mbps maximum raw up and down data speeds, though it adds the transmit and receive speeds for the model numbers: N600, N750 and N900.

No 802.11ac? No, because the chip tech isn't yet mature and product support too limited - no laptops, phones or tablets have it built in - WD folk told El Reg.

All three - plus the HDD-equipped N900 Central unit, WD's take on Apple's Time Capsule product - come with quality-of-service settings pre-applied to favour streaming and gaming data.

WD calls it FasTrack, adding a Plus to the moniker for the two N900s to indicate a greater degree of user-configurability.

The N900s also sports eight Gigabit Ethernet ports - one for the WAN connection - while the rest have five. The N600 has one USB port; the other models two.

All four boxes go on sale today priced as follows: N600 (£80), N750 (£100), N900 (£170), N900 Central 1TB (£300) and N900 Central 2TB (£350).

WD also launched today an £50 eight-port Gigabit switch. ®
