How do I connect a USB hard drive to my TalkTalk Router and use it over my network

I have a Maxtor usb hard drive and would like to connect it to my TalkTalk router and use it on my network.

What do I need to do so that this drive is available to all computers on the network?

Hi and welcome mickhutch

 

You will need to enable and setup SAMBA on your router.  See the following thread for the hg533, I would imaging that other talktalk routers will be similar

Hope this helps
