Hi
This is my config: I have a wireless "cable modem + router" in the living room without any computer linked to it.
In two other rooms I have 2 computers with USB wifi adapters so that I can access internet from both.
Works fine. Now, I would like a kind of external hard drive where I would store my data (music, pictures...) and that I could access wirelessly from any of the two computers.
1- Does that kind of wireless NAS exist and if so what is the best product for a limited budget
2- If I use a regular NAS (not wireless) and connect it to my wireless router with a RJ-45 cable, will that work?
Thanks for your answers
