Ok here we go, asked support but they just said it wasn’t made for that.
I have a router coming next week, a wireless gaming router
I bought the My Book 2TB at this link
What I had planned to do is connect 3 laptops to do backups to this My Book.
All the laptops run wirelessly and the router has a USB port and hoped to connect the My Book to the routers USB and that way all laptops could connect through the router to the My Book.
Has anyone tried this or know if it will work?
As I read here it seems it is only made for like 1 computer but to me why have 2TB if hard drives are never that large for the most part, it would be senseless to have 1TB backed up over time if your HD was only 5GB in size, all the stuff on the My Book wouldn’t fit anyway on the computer, thats why I hoped that it could be used the way I intended on with my question.
