    Hey guys,
    I have the Xfinity cable modem/router (SMCD3GNV), and I just realized there is a USB port on it. I just connected my external HD to this USB port which powers it up. Does anyone have any clue as to how I could access the hard drive's contents over my WiFi? Not finding much out via the Googles..

    I have a NetGear WNDR3300 router connected to the modem which has 4 LAN inputs, no USB.

    Thanks

    My guess is that the firmware on the device doesn't support the USB port. A good indication would be if there's any mention of the port in the router setup web pages.
