i had a 8 port (Ethernet) router, 2tb usb external hdd, and 5 desktops,1 laptop (wifi embedded) and a epson printer.
i need to use that 2tb usb external hdd as centralized storage and as well as epson printer too.
First of all i get internet from dsl modem which has 4 ethernet ports and also wifi in it.
A wired connection from dsl moderm to router.Then i connect Ethernet wires to each pc's from router. Printer is connected to first pc.
note: my dsl modem doesn't support inter-connective so i used a all-in-one-router.
