Hey buddies
can any one suggest some cheap wifi adsl modem cum router or only wifi router (without adsl) which have got a usb port which can read a usb hdd. kindly help..(my budget is appx 3-4k max)

EDIT: Is there anything available in india like a cheap network storage adapter which can connect usb hdd to ethernet/ router like D-Link dns 120 which i suppose have been discontinued now. also Hitachi simplenet which is not available..

NAS seems to b a bit too expensive option for me. suggest me some cheap solution like connecting a usb hdd to a router..
 
You can enable file and printer sharing so that the hard disk of one computer is accessible from others also.

thats true, but i need to keep that computer on all the time, even if i dont require that. so i want some storage on lan, on which i can keep network usable data, which can be accessible from both the computers without switching on the other one.
 
Well I can give you one suggestion though I am not sure if you would be satisfied with it. You can use Microsoft's "SkyDrive" with which you can store 25 GB of data online under a single hotmail email account and you can access it from anywhere. And its free. Some pros and cons of the service :

PROS :
*Store 25 GB of data.
*Personalize your online drive by making as many folders as you want and organize your files accordingly.
*Its 100 % free.

CONS :
*Files need to be uploaded first before you can enjoy your online drive, so you need to have a good internet connection.
*Size of files cannot exceed 50MB which is quite frustrating.

URL : www.skydrive.live.com [You can simply sign in with your existing hotmail account and start using it.]

SkyDrive is very good if you are just dealing with documents,presentations,spreadsheets,photos and songs. Its not recommended for videos since the individual file size restriction makes you think twice.

Thanks one more time..i'll try n get in touch with them tomorrow. BTW i called up a dealer in Delhi about WL 600G and he told me its price 16.5k, if thats the case its beyond my budget, infact D-Link 685 is a better choice in that case which is around 9.5k. that too is beyond my budget. lol..
