So I have a 2TB external I got in a recent sale. I was wondering if there was any way to connect to this device wirelessly. I have a wireless network setup at home (using netgear WGR1000 v2 router) with various laptops, video games, cell phones, printer etc connected. Is there any way to make the External almost like a private local storage device on the network? I dont really care if all devices are able to connect to it so long as my main laptop, running both Ubuntu 10.10 and W7, is able to get on it. Maybe a simple device that makes the usb connection wireless (like how wireless mousea and keyboards work)
