here you can find detailed Linksys kb about how to create USB share
http://kb.linksys.com/Linksys/GetArticle.aspx?docid=0868d4e24a6a468280c3cf270c1d6a31_21517.xml

basically it is about to log into routers management, go to Storage>Disk part and Share what you need to share

By default, everything on the drive should be shared when you plug it in... you only need to configure anything if you want to restrict sharing.

That's shown on page 58 (61 of 65 in a PDF reader) of the E4200 Manual.

If you want to access files on the drive over the internet, you have to enable and setup the router's FTP server, too. That's shown on page 27 of the manual (and unless you have your own domain, you'll probably need a redirect service like DynDNS.com et al, and configure DDNS, which is shown on page 8 of the manual).

to access your drive from LAN you can map the network drive (with IP of your router) or access it via UNC like \\routerIP (also you can create such a shortcut placed on your desktop)

when you have DDNS you should be able to access it from Internet browsing your DDNS hosname and in the routers menu you have option to browse the share (page 59 in E4200 manual provided by Darr above)
