Connecting Hard Drives
« on: December 27, 2013, 06:27:28 PM »

Hello,

Does anyone know if I can connect more than one USB hard drive to the router as there is only one USB port at the back.  Also, what is the maximum storage of the HD?

Thanks

There isnt... I recommend that you use network NAS devices or give USB to network LAN adapters a try.

You need to make sure they are configureable and you can used them as intended. Good start. Check w the Mfr for information.
