  1. Belkin has announced an interesting new solution that can take up to four USB devices and make them wirelessly accessible from any computer on your home network. Dubbed Belkin Home Base, this little box will automatically back up each connected computer's files when hooked up to an external hard drive, or turn your standard printer into a shared device that everyone on the network can use.

    I'm actually surprised this didn't exist a long time ago (first I've heard of it, at least).

    There are routers that can do this stuff, albeit not so great.
    A review on this would be great.

    Long time ago (CompUSA was still around) there was some sort of similar device only wired. Don't remember either the name or the manufacturer, but it had relatively bad reviews and cost about $100 so I passed on it back then. I ended up converting an old computer into a Linux server handling printing and file storage. This new device seems like a nice solution for the money. Would like to see how fast it is in handling the tasks, especially file transfer. Old Linux NSLU2 was slower than molasses in January.
