We have a 4GEE wifi router and would like to set up an external 1TB hard drive to work through the router, I've tried to connect it via the USB port on the router but have not been able to connect to the hard drive is there a way to make this work. I've had a look on the router home page but can't find any tabs to assist with access, we are running both windows 10 and IOS on the wifi
can you help and thanks in advance

Good Morning @Gavnor
Is the hard drive compatible to connect straight to the router?
Does it not need to connect to a computer/laptop?
Where did you get the hard drive?

You can't get the hard drive to connect to the router. The USB port is for charging & acts as a quasi-Ethernet when it has installed some EE Web Connection s/ware on the device it is connected to, which I presume you can't do on the hard drive.
You will need to connect the hard drive to 1 of your PCs & share it over the LAN.
