I would like to connect a hard drive that has USB enclosure to an wireless N dlink extreem router so that I can access files wirelessly on my laptop. I installed SharePort utility on my pc and it is showing drive in the utility connected but can not see it in explore like the way I see when drive is connected directly to LAPTOP using USB port. I also tried to map the drive but nothing works. What am I missing ? anything on WIN 7 side ? I tried the same with a USB jump drive but same thing. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

Thanks but not working. Do I need NAS type drive or something as a file server.
I tried to map a network drive as \\dlinkrouter\MYUSBDRIVE and it says some firewall issues at port 445 at router level and nothing wrong with firewall setting on WIN 7 side.
