Maxtor and Linksys plan to announce a partnership featuring a $ 99 Linksys device designed to allow an external hard drive to connect to a wireless router, letting PCs tap into the storage and share files without any physical link to the drive. Maxtor and Linksys are marketing products together and tout a common set of instructions for tying drives to routers with what’s dubbed the “Linksys Network Storage Link.” The Linksys Network Storage Link connects to an external hard drive through one of two USB ports and includes a file management system. It is designed to work with a wired or wireless network, and to work with other external drives apart from Maxtor products.
