Western Digital makes routers now

Now, though, the company is getting into the wireless game as well: it just announced its first networking products, including four dual-band routers and an Ethernet switch. Across the board, the routers use WD's so-called FasTrack technology to prioritize bandwidth-hogging activities like movie streaming, video chats and online gaming.

That'll be available in 1TB and 2TB flavors, and you can use a WD 2 Go website to access the drive remotely. There are also iOS and Android apps, with a Windows Phone version coming soon.
