the only way that will work thru the router is, use your home pc as the base networking station then also make sure that the router is plug to that home pc. to give you wireless entry to that home pc.

And then connect the external hd via usb this is the tricky part if you dont know, once you have it connected go to in your computer start then computer there you will see another drive letter, right click and look for sharing and name it what ever you want. and then save it.

thru your laptop go to start my computer on the tool bar look for map network look for the name of the external hd that you named it too click on it and you'll have access via your laptop you can do what ever from there.

the instruction that i gave you is from the os of windows xp pro not to sure how vista is.....
