I have a 120gig drive in one of those external enclosures.
It connects to my main pc (which is connected to my linksys wireless router via ethernet cable) via a usb 2 cable.
I have a laptop which connects wirelessly via the router to both the internet, and the shared 120gig drive.
Obviously, I can only connect to the shared drive when the main PC is turned on.
It would be really convenient if I could somehow have the external drive attached to the router, so I always have acces to it, even if the main PC is off.
I have 3 or 4 free ethernet sockets on the back of the router.
Any ideas how/if I can do this.
