This is the setup of my little home IT department.
Before purchasing this little Linksys unit, which is a USB Network storage link. I read many reviews. Most of them mentioned speed as being a problem. My network as you can see is wired 10/100 and wireless G 54Mbps, so it actually fits in nicely. And I don't need to upgrade my router, or any of my NIC cards in my computers. Wirelessly, it doesn't make a difference how fast it can server up the files, from my tests, I can listen to music from the NAS. Now the real test will be listening to music, and from another computer watching a video. I did a brief test between the laptop, and my desktop. Over the wireless network, these are the results:
