    Hi,
    I have a segate 500 GB external HDD
    its only interface is USB
    I want to connect this HDD with my wireless router
    so that i can share the data with my LT wirelessly
    since the router's ethernet interface doesn't allow a USB conn
    what the the options where i can connect this ext HDD to router
    i searched for usb to ethernet converter(adaptor)
    but i am not sure for its practical use
    If anyone has used any method to do this please share
    it will be completely different senario if i had to use a specfic ethernet HDD
    which i am sure a NAS(quite costly)
    thanks

    If I had a webcam u could have seen me, before you
    I don't think you can just buy a converter and you are through... there are other features needed to make it functional ... for eg. how would your modem know what data is present on which sectors of the HDD.. (-> How can the simple modem + a simple HDD perform functions of an OS ?? )
