Afternoon all. I am having a problem seeing an external hardrive attached to my router. I have 2 computers one which the router is hard wired to and a laptop. When I go to network I cannot see the external hdd. I cannot even map it. When I go into my router the HDD has an IP address. Someone has suggested that I create a host file with this IP address. I have tried google but cannot figure it out. Can someone advise me how I do this.

Thanks
