Multitalented Network-Attached Storage

In the consumer arena, network-attached storage hardware has been expanding its capabilities. That makes sense, because the devices already build in networking smarts along with much of the power of general-purpose computers. So, for example, the Apple Time Capsule 1TB (A1302) also serves as an 802.11n router-and one that can extend the range of your wireless network. Both the HP MediaSmart Server EX487 and the Linksys by Cisco Media Hub (NMH 405), as their names make clear, act as media servers in addition to being file repositories.
