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

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

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

any help on a good choice? i will just be transfering my camcorder footage to it for safe keeping

or you could get one of these and hook up printers etc as well? ]Click

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

Any ideas of other manufacturers, or drives that include the hdd
