I switched back to Verizon from Comcast a few weeks back. It's nice to be back to some sanity. Sorry, I know others might have had a great experience with Comcast but it was too much drama for me.


But back to Verizon they sent me a new D-Link Wireless ADSL2+ Router, also known as the DSL2750B.  It has a USB port in the back for a drive all the devices on wireless system can access. If anyone is familiar with this type of option on any of their routers do you think it's set up to handle an external USB Hard drive or just a Thumb Drive?


Thanks, that's it! Appreciate any input as always.  Jack  ":-D

I have an Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station wireless router and it has the USB port on it. The Mac OS recognized it right away, and I don't know why Windows wouldn't either in this day and age. It's pretty handy. I bought a 2 TB and partitioned it into 2 x 1 TB drives, one for me, and one for the wife. Both partitions showed up fine.
