second router and LAN HDD

  conan_troutman 13:38 31 Dec 2007

I have invested in a LAN HDD and want to put it in the attic bedroom for security (why back up your photos to external hard drive and run the the risk of some herbert robing it if you get broke into)

my question is how?

I have a wireless connection at home using a Belkin N1 router I am running windows vista and XP
I have Network Magic installed on both computers to manage my network

I also have a belkin all in one wireless print server running a canon netwrked printer.

can I use my old linsky router as a wireless LAN server for my HDD or am clutching at straws with this one?

any advice is welcome please post all suggestions no matter how daft you think they maybe.
