I'm planning to connect my printer (HP PSC 1350 All-In-One Series) and an external HDD (NTFS formatted) over a network. As such, I want a device which has both USB and Ethernet ports so that I can connect my printer and HDD into the USB ports and connect to my existing router via Ethernet.
I've tried searching for such a device and the closest I found was Planex's Mini-MFP 10/100 Mbps USB 2.0 MFP Server. However, it's not compatible with my printer and does not support NTFS-formatted HDD. http://www.planex.net/product/print/mini-mfp.htm
The Silex's SX-5000U2 does not support NTFS format. http://www.silexamerica.com/us/prod...sx5000u2_2.html
1. Does anyone know of such a usb server? If possible, I prefer one with plug and play (easy setup) as I'm quite new to networking.
2. Also, is it true that all usb servers do not support NTFS format? Cuz almost all the usb servers I found only support FAT much to my disappointment.
Any help will be much appreciated!
