How to attach a USB NAS to a TalkTalk Super Router (HG635)


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I know that some people have managed to connect a USB NAS to a TalkTalk Super Router (HG635). I have a USB disk drive and I wanted to connect this to the router so that my desktop computer and my laptop computer could share files without a physical connection.

How would I go about doing this?

Also, into the USB port on the router, could I attach a USB hub to increase the number of ports from one to four, say, and then use all of them to attach mulitple USB drives to allow for larger storage?

Thank you in advance!

Just plug it in, log in to the routers pages.....click on the "Check my network status icon" and you will see something like this

Click on the usb device and you will see something like this http://1drv.ms/1wEKyYf Note the links to the sharing and samba settings at the bottom.

The help (What's this) links in the UI are quite good at explaining settings etc

As for the hub, I think that would work OK

edit:add hub sentence.
