External Hard Drive to Router GT784WNV hook up

Message 1 of 2

Hello, I want to hook up an external hard drive to my Verizon WiFi router GT784WNV so all my home devices can use it. I read that the USB port on this model is disabled (aside from the ability to use the port as a charger). Would I need to get a hard drive with an Ethernet connection instead of the USB for it to work in hooking up a hard drive?

Also, I was going to go with a 4TB hard drive but read that some routers are limited as to the size of storage they will recognize, is there a storage limit this router will recognize?

Thank you

At the moment there is no USB support on the ActionTec Gateway. It's only useful for power.
