A good wireless router that provides network storage as a bonus
5 May 2012
Summary: It seemed a good idea to have a local data store accessible from all my computers, The D-link Xtreme Wireless Router promises this. I found that the best deal was from the USA and it was dispatched quickly to me. However, although "Priority Mail" it got held up at British Customs for well over a week before I was informed that there was VAT to pay before it would be delivered. Once I paid this it was delivered the next day.
Summary: this is an awesome product with great all round possibilities for a home office. definetely the product to buy if you looking at saving space, power and money. coupled with a hard drive, its the ultimate tool in a home. :) definetely very satisfied. however D-Link should make a serious effort as the product is marketed as a 'Photo Frame' and both services that render pictures online have been shut down and as such im stuck with the statistics monitor only.

Summary: The dir 685 is a wireless router cross storage device, it allow you to stream data you have on the hard drive to your dlna supported hardware or even through the internet. It allows hosting a website also it is so simple to setup as there is a setup wizard. You cannot use it as an adsl device on cable users can use it to full advantage. I have a smart TV and any films I put on the deriver it wirelessly streams to the TV with no problems.
Conclusion: Маршрутизатор D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N имеет прикольный интерфейс и множество функций. Его не нужно прятать что бы скрыть антены и недостатки дизайна. Такой маршрутизатор нужно ставить рядом с монитором, дабы насладиться им и всеми возможностями в полной мере. Очень радует простота настройки и качество ...
Pros: Прикольный дизайн, USB, сетевое устройство хранения данных, цифровая фоторамка и принт-сервер
