I’ve got 2 WD Live units that I’m very happy with. One wired, one basic wireless-N.
I’m putting together a WD Live Plus system for a friend: WD, 2TB external, keyboard, router and wireless USB.
I’ve looked at the list of WD-approved wireless products, but I’d like to hear what products the users here have the least trouble with. My friend isn’t a techie.
This will be installed in a 4,000sqft home. So, I assume dual band is going to be necessary. But I’d still like to keep the costs reasonable.
Also, I’m not sure if the router and USB adapter have to be from the same product line to achieve maximum speed and range. Can I just mix and match the cheapest dual band approved router with the cheapest dual band approved USB adapter and expect maximum performance?
Finally, I like those mini wireless keyboard/mouse combos out now. But are there any that are also universal remotes that will work with the WD Live Plus?
