Ive been looking for an ADSL2 wifi modem that can host a hard drive. the vodafone was a dud as it would only support FAT .

Ive spotted these netcomm modems turning up on trademe, some ISP is giving them out...

Anyone know if they can host a hard drive and if so what file system can they support.
A 32 gig USB stick isnt much help, which is all the vodafone could do.

Netcomm is meh for that stuff.

Fritzbox all the way. Gives much better NAS-like features than most of the routers available. You always get what you pay for.
