How do I set up my External HD to my Router?Locked
Ok so in theory, this would be really easy. I bought a “Linksys-Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch-WRT610N SKU: 8892335” which promises the use of external storage wirelessly through the USB drive on the back. I then bought a “Seagate-FreeAgent Desk 2TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive-Titanium Silver-ST320005FDA2E1-RK SKU: 9317438” thinking that I could store all my music, pictures, and the like on there so that when I wanted to access them, they could be wherever I wanted to at home and not have to worry about it clogging up my laptop. For those of you with laptops, you understand. Also, when your pics are tied to Picasa and your music to iTunes, you can’t have to worry about plugging ur comp in anytime you want to access them…
Anyways… the instructions for the router are TERRIBLE. My friend managed to do what he could to hook it up and it works when you use something like a thumb drive; however, we can’t get it to work with the hard drive. He mentioned something about it being too big? I don’t understand why it would matter…
I wanted a large storage device so EVERYTHING could be there with backup drives stored elsewhere (just so you don’t think I’m an idiot in keeping everything in one place).
What do I do? I spent a lot of money on a large drive. If it is too big, do you think I’d be able to do a USB hub and put 2 (or more) smaller drives there?
Thanks so much for the help… I’m not a tech idiot, but this is over my head.
