    Hi, I have a 180GB external USB HD that I use for my MP3 collection, I also have a router and a wireless network in my home.

    Is there any simple way I can hook this USB HD into my router and be able to access it wirelessly from any of the computers on my network? Thanks

    Not into your existing router but Netgear makes a unit with 2 USB2.0 ports for NAS.

    they make the ethernet to usb-bridge, as well, ya know... The router just integrates that. (exactly how a router is really a router and a switch)
