Quick rundown: My roommate and I share the Internet in one apartment, but the main router and modem is in his room. I bought a WD Hard Drive, but after opening it and seeing the instructions, I discovered I needed to connect it to a router in order for it to access the Internet for remote access and cloud file sharing.
I picked up a separate wireless router hooked it to my computer, then connected the hard drive to the router, but that’s not working either. Is there any way to have my laptop pass along its connection data to the router so I can have my hard drive access the Internet? (And no, putting the hard drive in my roommate’s room is NOT an option!)
Thanks in advance!
