It seems my wireless router is toast, so I’m in the market for a new one.
This one, a Belkin N+ was touted as having “simple” NAS - simply plug a USB storage device into the back of it, install a small client on your machine, and bada bing you would be able to access your stuff.
The NAS part never actually worked at all, but the device worked well as a router* anyway so I kept it.
Now I guess I can try again, and maybe this time get something that actually does serve files from a storage device over the network. I don’t want to buy anything extra like a NAS server or install any fancy software beyond a wee client, but no client at all would be better. I don’t care about music streaming or NAS printing. Just plug-and-play file storage.
Anyone got any recommendations?
*Except that my Blackberry couldn’t see the SSID, my PS3 couldn’t connect to it if I had any encryption turned on, and my roomie’s laptop couldn’t get an IP address from it if encryption was turned on. Actually, it didn’t work very well at all, in retrospect.
