Two USB ports enabled with D-Link’s unique SharePort™ technology allow multiple users to wirelessly share USB devices such as multi-function printers (MFP), scanners and external hard drives from virtually anywhere in the home or office. It also features Gigabit ports for fast wire transfers.

The DIR-685 employs D-Link Green™ technology for conserving energy in several ways, including the ability to automatically recognize port activity and cable length and adjust power usage accordingly. It also can consolidate all functions into a single device instead of many separate products and use the idle mode to automatically turn off power to the LCD screen when not in use.

A Wi-Fi Scheduler can be programmed to turn off the router’s Wi-Fi module at a pre-set time, and the power adapter complies with Energy Star specifications for average power savings of up to 30 percent. The same power-saving features located in the gigabit ports are also included in the NAS drive. Based on feedback from industry experts and pre-production reviews, noise from the internal fan used to cool the hard drive has been significantly reduced in the currently shipping products.
