    Hello All

    I am struggling with trying to set up a wireless back up option for time machine. I currently use my external drive via a direct USB connection to my iMac. This is fine but I would ideally like a wireless option to reduce clutter and move the backup drive away from the iMac.

    I run a BT Home Hub 2.0 and have therefore connected my Toshiba Gigastore external hard drive via the hubs USB port. Unfortunately time machine does not appear to see the drive and being new to Macs I am at a loss where to go next?

    Can anyone help?

    AFAIK the BT home hub only supports FAT32 HDD's via USB so it wouldn't work for time machine.
