Is it possible to connect the following western digital hard drive to my wireless router so i don't have to connect it directly to my laptop?

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

no you would need a network harddrive
#2
you can connect external drives to the home hub as network drives so it is possible, it does has to be fat formatted though and not NTFS
#3
as baove, you will need a NAS harddrive....... you could, take the hd out of the case, buy a nas case (£30 ish ???) and then do it that way

I have been looking at NAS, the ones I have found so far cost £40 upwards made by ICY BOX:
