Seagate passes WiFi-enabled GoFlex Satellite hard drive through the FCC

Posted in Seagate by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2011

The latest gadget to pass through the FCC is the GoFlex Satellite hard drive from Seagate. Right now, if you want to add a network attached storage device to your network it is a time consuming process of connecting cables, finding a location for your drive near a router, and configuring your network. Seagate will make this process a whole lot easier with this device.

The device packs in 802.11 b/g/n WiFi capabilities, allowing you to add the Satellite to your network without stringing wires from your router to the drive. This also means you can put the Satellite anywhere you have network access. Nothing on pricing or release yet.
