Dear all the computer gurus out there:
I currently live with the inlaws, where our network setup is
Virgin media 2mb broadband in to a modem, then to a wifi router which is hard wired to a tower system, My Wife and I then have a laptop each which are wireless.
The tower is always on with my shared access usb HDD and shared usb printer attached, sort of like a server.
Trouble is we are in the process of buying our own house and the tower system belongs to my father in law so that wont be coming with us.
So the problem is:
I want to be able to save pictures and music etc onto a common hard-drive that either laptop can save to and pull info off at any time, even the same time if need be. I want to be able to surf/browse the web on both wireless laptops but no large downloads are needed. and I want to be able to wireless printing from both laptops.
I dont want to buy a server or tower to act like a server but I have seen a router which I think would solve my problems, but a "know it all" in work says it wont work.
the router is this one
and this is how I would like it setup:
any comments our suggestion welcome
