I think it is important two points
1) the Author simply does not fit the router that performs the functions of file storage (with a drive connected via usb). For not the speed. In all routers I had the speed here is absolutely terrible. Not the fact that enough even for watching movies. Not that for their downloads. It is a feature of usb and file systems and curves of the drivers from Linux for the routers.
That is, you need a router + NAS
. The router distributes the network devices, NAS provides access to the hard disk and shakes torrents.
2) the Router must be powerful enough. Watching movies is really a huge burden on the router. Budget models like the Asus Rt-N10 can not cope. If you don't want to get into a situation when your roommate includes a film and you immediately cuts off the Internet. Or for example, have to cut down all the torrents to watch the movie.
That is your choice: budget NAS drive 1-2 terabyte (4000-5000r) and a powerful router (3500-5000r). Just elozetes to your limit.
From Rotrou can porekomendovat ASUS Rt-N16
, Linksys E3200
, Linksys E4200
, etc. If you watch movies via wifi, it is possible for you to be a better router supports 5 GHz. But powerful enough routers with such support are beginning to handle for 5000r. Plus they worse avoid obstacles, in an apartment with 3 rooms and thick walls it can be critical.Also there are other Gabrieli different options to offer.
Of any budget NAS with support for 1Gbit network. For example WD My Book Live
, SEAGATE FreeAgent GoFlex Home
, IOMEGA Home Media Network
, there are other options. It is interesting that most of the cost of the NAS is hard disk.
\rImportantly Google and search your NAS is compatible with the router. Of course these problems can always be solved, but if the default settings they don't work together, you can lose time.
Do not pursue cheapness — just puncture. Take the reliable and proven options.
