Default Home netwotk advice

Hi!

I have an actiontec modem/router and I would like to have an external HHD somewhere in the house that everyone can download on it and have acess to music/photos/movies!

What do I need?

Thx!

It sounds like a NAS would be exactly what you're looking for. Something like this:

Newegg.com - Seagate STAM3000100 3TB GoFlex Home Network Storage System

Thank you for the answer.

Its exactly what I need.

The only problem is that I have already a WD external 1.5TB that I bought 1 month ago. The USB port in my actiontec modem/router is useless! I don't want to buy another HHD...!

Any kind of solution to use my WD external drive like the GoFlex? I know I could connect it in my laptop and share from there but I don't want to do that.

An USB hub with an ethernet port could be my solution?

Thank you very much!

RTM
Actiontec Support M1000 Modular DSL Router
It's for connecting one computer directly to the modem part. It bypasses the router.

Maybe a print server, but I would be surprised if it worked.

If you read the faq's it says>>>
I would like to connect several USB devices to the Actiontec Router (or Modem), but it only has one USB port. Can I use a USB hub to allow more USB devices to connect?
No. The USB port on this device will allow only one Windows computer to connect via that port. It can not be used to connect a non-Windows computer, Hub, or any other USB device.
