I've been using BT HomeHub for the past year and all is OK. It is connected to a desktop via ethernet cable and I can also access via wifi.
Now that the rest of the family are (or soon will be) using various laptops for school work etc, I need a way of connecting the homehub, 500Gb hardrive and printer so that all can access Broadband internet and the drive and printer.
I've managed to plug the hardrive into the homehub and addressed it right, but it is extremely slow, so I've gone back to my original setup and just use it on the desktop.
I've seen a thing from Belkin called a Network USB Hub, but wondered if this is what I need or is anyone using anything else that is better.
