Introduction
The D-Link MediaLoungeTM Wireless 802.11g Central Home Drive is a versatile 20
Gigabyte (DSM-622H) or a 40 Gigabyte (DSM-624H) portable HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
device that is accessible both wirelessly, or via an Ethernet connection.
With a built-in USB 2.0 port, the DSM-622H/624H provides access to additional USB
storage drives and supports Microsoft® Windows Connect Now (WCN) standard to
configure WLAN settings. The DSM-600 series Central Home Drive provides a fast and
easy way to add high performance storage capacity to home, small business or school
networks. These Central Home Drive devices are ideal for sharing archived digital photos
of family and friends, digital videos, music, games, important documents or other files
among computers and other devices on your network.
These are true Universal Plug and Play products, providing high data transfer rates over
a wireless or a Fast Ethernet connection and are compatible with Windows, Mac OS X
and Linux-based computers. For supported Windows operating systems, the UPnP™
protocol allows for instantaneous discovery with no configuration required.
With Mac OS X, the DSM-622H/624H uses Apple’s Rendezvous for instant detection
with no configuration.
For added convenience, these digital media storage devices are also hot-swappable and
their Fast Ethernet ports are Auto MDI/MDI-X, meaning that you can use any type of
standard Ethernet cable — either straight-through or crossover cable if you are using an
Ethernet connection.
With the DSM-622H & 624H communicating with your wireless router — all the computers
in your LAN will have instant access to extra data storage and file sharing!
