  1. You can make it a shared contents drive. Is section "Setting Up the File Server" in your manual?
  2. That USB connection is not for hard-drive or printer sharing, looks like it's to backup settings.

    You need something like this to use with another hard-drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822155019

    Of a router like this to use with your USB drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122326

    The NAS part in that router means it has network attached storage capability. Other routers have this, I like the Netgear RangeMax ones.
