I need to know if the new modem/router offered by exede has the ability for me to set up a network hard drive. I am currently having problems with my personal router and am debating upgrading to the new modem/router offered, but if I can't hook a hard drive into it then I will probably just go buy another router.

I'm using mine with my WD MyCloud drive with no issues whatsoever. :)

Thank you sir. If you don't mind me asking what size? Mine is a 2tb, and my router manufacturer told me that's what messed mine up, they said routers won't handle over 1tb. I call bs, but it's not under warranty so oh well.

Hello Steve, on our Wi-Fi Modem, yes, there will be 3remaining Ethernet ports and a USB port. So as long as you use one of those toconnect the network hard drive to, you will be fine.

Mine is the 6Tb.  I have it hooked up via ethernet straight to a port on the router.
