Share Your External Hard Drive to Your Wi-Fi Network

If you’re looking to access your external hard drive without having to deal with the archaic method of lugging it around your home and plugging it into every device with which you need to use it, there are two simple solutions on how to share your external hard drive via your Wi-Fi network.

For the first solution, you’ll need to check your router. Most modern routers have a USB port into which you can plug in a USB-compliant device to share with other devices on your network, like a printer or, in this case, an external hard drive. Once you’ve located the USB port on your router, go ahead and plug in your USB external hard drive. Most modern routers should instantly recognize that an external hard drive has been connected. It is also recommended that you sign in to your router’s settings, whether it’s through a browser or its mobile app, and find an option for file sharing, USB application, or something similarly labeled. Depending on your router, you may have access to more options. For example, the ASUS RT-AC68U router allows for file sharing or multimedia access. Using ASUS AiDisk, you’ll even have remote access and quick content streaming.
