Western Digital enters the router market


We all know Western Digital for the dependable hard drives they make. Just a few days ago, we learned that the company entered the wireless networking market, which honestly is not that surprising. They’ll be facing a lot of competition in this field though, but due to reputation, might be able to get a fair share of it.

They’ve begun offering a range of simultaneous dual-band wireless N routers that include three basic models—the My Net N600 with 4 fast Ethernet ports and 300Mbit wireless on the 2.4 and 5GHz bands, the My Net 750 with gigabit Ethernet and 450Mbit wireless on the 5GHz band, and the My Net 950 with 7 gigabit Ethernet ports and 450Mbit wireless on the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. The company now also has the My Net N900 Central, which is a combination of the N900 router’s features with a built-in 1TB or 2TB hard drive. Devices outside a user’s home network can access files stored on these routers throughWestern Digital’s web portal or the company’s Android and iOS apps.
