Addonics claims its Network-attached USB (NAU) adapter can turn any USB storage device into a network storage device that’s available to all computers on the network. As reported in this Cnet report, it comes with a Gigabit Ethernet port and a USB 2.0 port.
“Moving from direct attached storage devices, such as an USB external hard drive, to network attached storage devices can be a daunting task as most NAS servers require new hard drives to work with them.
“According to Addonics, the NAU supports storage devices and virtually any other USB devices, including Webcams, USB speakers, USB cameras, printers, scanners, and so on. Once the USB device is connected to the network via the NAU adapter, any computer on the network can access the device as if it were locally attached to the computer.”
