Can I connect the HDD to a WiFi router via RJ-45 interface?

Good day, Hebraist!
There was a desire to do a kind of file garbage in your home grid.
To buy a media server or NAS device there is no desire. Want a budget option.
Such as external hard with Ethernet interface. But we have I found only 1 model. And-TA 3 TB, and worth big money. The farm has a external 750GB (enough for me). All the external is USB (obviously OK). But the USB port in the router busy modem. Hub on 2 out put is not an option. Since both outputs will be busy (modem + USB flash drive, which will make the physical memory of the router). But! There is 1 Ethernet free entrance!

We go to the market and seeing a bunch of adapters. Question.
Is it possible to make a chain: "External HDD -> USB adapter it mommy -> adapter adapter 2 USB Ethernet> connect to the router via Ethernet."?

Or I here the nonsense he wrote?:)

No, because USB 2 Eternet essentially network card with USB interface.

To clarify: I understand you have a hard drive with sled/box with USB kontrolera, so you're trying to use a USB.
The model that you gave is not real, as in place of "USB adapter mom-mom" should be a piece of iron, which a) will be a USB Host for a drive; b) will work with the network; C) to provide some service for file access (Samba/FTP/banker. FW/etc). "USB 2 Eternet" — a network card with USB interface consequently she needed for this USB to be powered, and must be someone who will do the work, as by itself, the network card cannot obtain an IP address via DHCP, etc, not to mention to be able to Samba/FTP/....

I think that you will more than save an active USB hub, for example sothat you can safely stick modem, flash drive, external hard drive and printer if you want. A passive hub may be able to pull the modem+flash drive, but the modem+flash drive+drive is already unlikely.

By the way your question is not entirely clear how many USB ports on the router are.
On account of the use of the flash drive — if the drive is connected and time how long you can make the partition easily replace the flash drive and then it can again hang on to the keys.

To buy any NAS box with support ethernet/usb (2,3)/firewire, disassemble, take out the screws 2,5/3,5, stick your big, check where the firmware is stored on the screw or on a flash drive, to collect all back, see how it works.
Some screws due to the fact that the firmware Linux, formatted as ext3 sorts, so that the new may have to format the same.
\r
If the box is able Gigabit — still have to update the router able Gigabit, possible to connect the screw directly to the fw/usb3, if he is able.

Possible, but not without additional costs. Adapter for the hard disks on the Ethernet is called a NAS, and there are enough different types, from fancy and large-sized system unit is the format of the adapter. In addition, there is such a thing as ATA over Ethernet.
