Increasingly, people are enjoying the benefits of always being connected, yet there still remains a gap in easily connecting people back to their content at home and sharing it with others. The DockStar network adapter reinvents how people think of anywhere access and the concept of sharing their digital files. It allows the FreeAgent Go portable hard drive to be added to a network, giving access to its content from anywhere within or outside of the home, as well as allowing for selective sharing of files with friends and family. In a matter of minutes a drive can become accessible through any Internet connected computer, as well as through an innovative iPhone application.

With simple installation and an intuitive web-based interface, the DockStar network adapter will change the way people control the access and sharing of their content by creating their own personal storage ‘clouds’ while keeping the security and privacy of the drives' content because it is located within their home. Users will also be able to deliver linked pictures and video to social networking sites, such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. The FreeAgent DockStar connects people and their experiences in a whole new way even though they might be thousands of miles apart.

Additionally, simple syndication takes on a new meaning when friends and family can receive RSS feeds of shares created to keep them informed of changes to the content. The DockStar network adapter also has three additional USB ports, allowing connection of up to four mass storage devices at a time, providing more to share and access whether you’re across the room or on the other side of the world.

  • newegg Turn Your Hard Drive into a NAS The FreeAgent DockStar network adapter instantly turns your FreeAgent Go USB or any compatible hard drive into a NAS (network attached storage), making it easier than ever to access, store and share your files from anywhere.
  • newegg Easy to Install The installation process couldn’t be easier – simply dock your hard drive, plug in two cables (Ethernet and power) and visit the web activation page to activate and automatically configure the FreeAgent DockStar.
  • newegg Superior Connectivity The FreeAgent DockStar features Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for lightning-fast file transfers so your digital media can be made available throughout your home quickly and easily. Three high-speed USB 2.0 ports allow for three other USB storage devices to be managed by the DockStar and shared across the network.
  • newegg Access from Anywhere With built-in Pogoplug functionality, access your drive from any networked computer inside or outside your home through a clean, Web-based interface, or from the convenience of your iPhone via a free iPhone app.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible NAS, Fun Toy

Pros: Can be found for cheap, small size, decent proc, lots of fun to hack.

Cons: Pogoplug setup is painfully slow and will require $30/year after first year.

Other Thoughts: I used this for about two weeks before realizing that you get what you pay for. This is not a viable solution for a NAS of any real value.
It is, however, fun to turn this little plastic stand into an incredible variety of devices using plugbox and openwrt...until you brick it.

1 out of 5 eggsIf you rely on the drives you are using with this, DO NOT BUY

Pros: Gigabit, 3 usb ports, thats about it.

Cons: Where do I begin. Let me start off by saying, if you are planning on using this for business at all, DO NOT BUY IT. This is one of the most un-reliable devices I have ever purchased. The time and money I have lost trying to get this thing working properly is a joke.

In the middle of doing actual paying work, all the drives just disappeared from the network. On reboots, sometimes you get logged out of the device, so no drives appear. If you are hooking this up for a client, how will they know that! Its quick to setup, if you use their software. A pain if you just want to use this to access drives over the network. This is also MUCH slower than an actual Network drive, the time I takes for things to respond is just not worth it. The actual data transfer rates are fast, but access time is slow. If your drives constantly get unplugged without being ejected, you will have errors on the drive that will NEED to be scanned and fixed, otherwise the device wont recognize the drives.

Other Thoughts: My 1TB drive took 11 hours to completely scan and fix all errors before I could finally hook it back up to the device so it would get recognized. When you plug your harddrive into your computer, if Windows prompts you to "scan the drive for errors", the drive will not work in this device. You have to scan it first.

You also have to have their software installed to get the drives to appear on any computers. If you use their built into WFS through their website, its not consistant, I'd have drives disappear all the time, but still accessable through their software.

This is a great concept, awesome if you just have files that dont matter, but if you are using this for work, do not buy this.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome for hackers, lame out of the box

Pros: * Powerful 1.2ghz ARM processor inside
* Based on the highly-hackable SheevaPlug
* Runs Linux
* A bargin under $40

Cons: * Only 128MB of RAM
* Not worth the original MSRP of $100
* Out of the box, it requires PogoPlug service. Potential security concerns, reliance on a 3rd party. Luckily, it can be hacked.
* Out of the box it does not do printer or scanner sharing.
* Hacking isn't for the faint of heart, but Linux hackers should rejoice!

Other Thoughts: I bought one to replace a Mac Mini, intending to reduce my power consumption from 25-110watts to 3-9watts. For me, for the price I paid, and the cost of electricity where I live, I decided that this would pay for itself.

4 out of 5 eggsNoisy

Pros: Works as advertised, looks slick.

Cons: The fans are either poorly engineered or poorly lubricated, and hard to get at. After about a week mine would constantly make a whirring noise as they collided with some part of the case. It was so disturbing I had to jam something into their ports to stop them from spinning. There is no way to disable them and I couldn't find a way to easily assess them to diagnose the problem.

Other Thoughts: Even with the fans jammed up the drive worked fine, made no noise and continued to operated quite fast.

4 out of 5 eggsNiffty, if a bit dated

Pros: Small, quick(not over wireless), Easy to set up, and reliable.
Awesome use of Multiple USB ports

Cons: Not really a con, but i strated tinkering with it to try and not use the pogo plug service, there is a subscription fee after the first year. I got a bit fouled up in Windows 7. It wasn't finding the drive after i set it up for WFS. Turns out you have to enable homegroup shareing on the OS and everything works out great

Other Thoughts: If you don't want to get too crazy with NAS this is a good option, multiple USBs and lots of power are a huge plus. Bandwith appers to be limited to your max upload speed while transmitting wireless through pogo plug, but works well withing the homegroup

4 out of 5 eggsUse without pogoplug

Pros: Easy to use. No cluster of cables to hook. Just plug your mini USB drive and it is available on the network.

Cons: Yes, it does not pogoplug. But I found a way to use it without pogoplug. The instructions are as follows:

You can use this as a home network server for windows without signing up with pogoplug or installing any software.

Plug your USB drive into your computer, format it (preferably with NTFS) and create a file on it named .ceid

Using notepad, or your favorite text editor, put these lines in the file
(replacing yoursharename with a name of your own choosing). Note the mode=rw
allows reading and writing.

servicename=yoursharename
xcode.metadata=never
xcode.thumbnail=never
xcode.stream=never
cifs.mode=rw

Plug the usb drive into the Dockstar, and you’re all set. The drive will be
available as
\\fadsMMMMMM\yoursharename (where MMMMMM are the last 6 letters and numbers
of the Dockstar’s mac address, which is on the label on the bottom).

found the source on a website.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic....

Pros: Are you kidding, it works!

Cons: Only thing I can think of is the potential for uncertainty for the remote access as 3rd party. My 11 yr old step-son's withering looks as I get excited about something that he could care less about.

Other Thoughts: Wow. This has been the solution I have been looking for and never really understood why it didn't exist. Our home business means we interchange between 3 laptops and 3 external drives so you can never find the right file etc. Losing Ext HD's before when dropped etc meant I was always worried about losing them. Now, everything is safely on a top shelf. Great, great price.

4 out of 5 eggsHandy

Pros: Cheap alternative to an expensive NAS, quick setup, easily accessible without internet over LAN. Directly connected to it I get about 20MB/s transfer rate from a hard drive I have hooked up. B/G wireless rate is about 2MB/s.

Cons: Slow if connect to any docked HDD via the wireless. Do yourself a favor: back up everything big while plugged directly into your router, and back up small things over the wireless.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: I love my Dockstar!! Setting up took about 15mins and registering didn't take long at all. Works FANTASTIC on my network. It backs up my documents, videos, music, and pictures everyday when my computer is turned on. Accessing over the internet is super fast but works and is nice to check and get files off. I would recommend this to all my friends. EVEN since its gone down in price. AND with the ability to up to 4 usb devices

Cons: NOT A PROBLEm.. works and does what it says

Other Thoughts: iPhone has an app.. soo makes it even more better!! website is also working great
