With this Router: http://www.netgear.com/products/prod_details.php?prodID=242&view=hm  you can connect a usb device a harddrive for example.

Is it possible to access the usb device on the network without aditional software on the computers that using it ?

I plan to use it for among other things ghost images and I want to be able to restore the images from dos using a startup disk with network drivers.

It is not possible to share USB device among other computer in the network without additional softwares or otherwise.

      Because you cant give them the network address (some devices most tell the network where they live).

      You can use USB Port switch for sharing USB device. And it requires 'USB 4-Port Switch for Sharing Devices' from http://www.usbgear.com/4-port-switch-1.html or similar devices.

      Cheers!!!

I see your point... If your Router supports telnet tunneling to an external device, you CAN do it...

But this router does not support that kind of architecture...

Yet, the WGT634U Does support such feature...

Sorry... it seems as if your router DOES support such feature...

"Key features

USB disk drive or memory stick connectivity"
