    Hi - I am running a 802.11g generation Extreme base station. Is it possible to connect a USB hard disk to the port at the back of it? If so how?

    You just need to make sure that the disk only has 1 partition. You'd also be better off if it were formatted in HFS+ rather than Fat32. Fat32 has a file size limit of 4GiB and the AEBSn can only share using SMB instead of SMB+AFP if you were to use HFS+.
    Just plug your drive in, and you should be good to go.
