SAN JOSE, Calif. - External hard drives need no longer be tethered to a single computer. A new product from Linksys allows such devices, which are commonly used as supplemental or backup computer storage, to be wirelessly connected to a home network, so multiple users can tap into the data bank like a central library.

The $99 Linksys Network Storage Link serves as a bridge between any external hard drive with a USB port and a router that is part of a wired or wireless network.

Linksys, a division of Cisco Systems Inc., is also partnering with hard drive maker Maxtor Corp. to co-market and collaborate on other products to help consumers store, access and manage their growing amounts of digital media files.
