Hi, I need to know how can I share my External Hard Drive via Fios G1100 Router. If there is no solution (as I couldn't find anything on Google or from Verizon help desk), can someone help me on how can I attach a NAS cheaply? (And what do I do with my current EHDs?)

A NAS hard drive just connects to one of the LAN ports of your G1100. There’s is nothing special you have to do. I used a Western Digital HD My Cloud with no issues. If your referring to a USB network hard drive, that won’t work with the G1100. The USB ports only pass 5 VDC.
