BT Home Hub 3 - USB port
Has a anyone here experimented with the USB port on the home hub?
When we had a home hub 2 we connected a printer to it and used it as a wireless printer(kind of).
Now with the hub 3 i wanted to use it as network storage. I connected and external HDD (80gb NTFS) and it appeared on the network and loaded fairly quickly however the hub seemed to be so busy looking at the HDD the internet speed dropped so low pages timed out.
Has anyone tried this and got it to work or have any other useful/novel uses for the USB port on a home hub?
its all fun until something falls off.
