BT Home Hub....

Hi,

I am wanting to connect my external hard drive to my BT home hub and use this as a time machine and back up over the air.

Is this possible?

Possible, but why...

Much better to get a NAS and plug it to the ethernet port.
I tried to connect my USB external HDD to HomeHub few months ago and it was a fiasco...

thanks for your reply,

I scrapped the idea, just going to save my pennies for a Time Capsule!
