I purchased an external hard drive a couple months ago. 160GB at a really good price I am happy with the purchase. I use it to back up all the files from computers on my network. The only problem is that I have to connect each computer individually to the hard drive to save the files to it which gets a little bit annoying at times especially when you need to save or retrieve files regularly. K back to the hard drive it uses a fire wire cable connection that connects to the laptops on my network. And I was trying to figure out a process to make my tasks a little bit easer and also for others on my network as far as accessing and saving files to the external hard drive. I was thinking since my network is wireless may be I can some how link the hard drive to the router. Kind of like a personal network server. That sound good but not sure if it’s possible but I am excited about this project.
Do you guys/girls have any ideas or advice that will help me accomplish this? Any advice will be appreciated
Thanks in advance.
