This may be a silly question (I'm new to this). I have a home wireless network with 4 computers on it. I wanted to get a storage unit that I could plug into the router and be accessed for storage (back up of select files) by all of the computers. I purchased a Buffalo Drivestation Axis hard drive unit thinking I would just plug it into the router via USB and it would act as such. Somewhere I thought I had read this was possible. However, it is not being recognized by the network and I'm now wondering if I bought the wrong thing (and perhaps should have purchased a NAS type of storage unit such as the Buffalo Linkstation?). Can anyone help on this? I emailed Buffalo support a couple of times but I'm not hearing back and I'd like to return the Drivestation soon if I need to do so. Thanks!!
