    Adding HD to Network

    I recently set up a wireless router in my house. My main computer and my Tivo are connected by Ethernet while two other computers are connected via wireless. I have a large USB drive I do not use. Is there a way to plug it into the router and make it accessible to the computers connected to the router? I don't really want to call it a network since I have not done anything to make it a network, I am just using the router to share a DSL connection.

    Well, if you are using a router, you have a network.

    Have a look at "My Network Places" in Windows Explorer.

    As for the USB drives, they MUST be designed for and come with software to be used as asked. But you can also plug them into a computer and share them.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
