Right hardware isn't my speciality to many abreviations and stuff to confuse me. The HD on my brothers computer blew this week and its being replaced, sigh lot of data lost. Not going to fork out a tone of money for forensic recovery. So anyway decided to get a backup HD as well one we can connect to his router using ethernet cable.

Like i said, hardware isn't my speciality. So can anyone tell me if these two products from maplins are compatible?

Are you planning on using his router with your PC? If both PC's are hooked up to the same Router this is a good idea. On the other hand if you plan on having the 2 PC's just share the Hard drive from 2 different homes it would be easier to just use a USB enclosure and Hard drive. There are some good deals on USB enclosed Hard drives. But for your question, Yes the 2 items will work together.

Greate, yes the idea is to use it with a router, which has 1 ethernet, 1 USB and wireless. Plug the HD into the ethernet one computer via USB and the other using wifi.

Thanks

Not 100% sure but will that modem run both usb and ethernet at the same time?
It sounds like you have a modem supplied by your IPS and I thought they will only work with one option ( usb or ethernet) as they are software controlled
