I'm hoping to attach an external USB hard drive to my network for backups (Mac Time Machine). Is it true that the USB ports on the G1100 router don't actually do anything?
I found a number of posts on this topic but they are quite old and some say Verizon is "working" on this problem. Anyone have a clue if it's possible to access a USB drive via this sort of router? Or do I need to get a drive that has an ethernet cable?
Thanks! Man, that's wildly lame, but anyway, I do have a hardrive with an ethernet attachment. I assume it's NAS, it's a WDMyBook..... do you think this drive will work with the router? I've attached it and can't see any sign of a way to connect it or see it on the network.
