I would like to be able to connect a harddrive to my Linksys Router and have it be accessible from any computer on the network. This would allow me to back up important files from multiple systems with minimal hassle.

I have the Linksys WRT54G.

If another vendor is providing this feature, I can stray from Linksys....

Thanks,
Brady

the two maxtors are in a good price range plus one's 300 gb and the other is 200....only issue with those is that they are refurbs...

the buffalo is in the sweetspot of price and storage so it's nice as well...not a refurb
