I would like to connect my 2.5" Seagate HDD to ASUS WL500gP v2 router and use it for file sharing. The HDD or it's enclosure doesn't have external power cord, it has only one (single) USB cable to connect to PC. When I connect the HDD to PC, everything works great. But when I connect the HDD to the router, the hard drive won't start spinning (clicking sound - not enough power).
Would it be enough to buy an Y cable to use the second USB port on the router to give additional power to the harddisk?
If not, are there any 2.5" HDD enclosures with external power cord?
