    1. Yes you can if the HDD is using FAT/FAT32/NTFS. Also if the HDD has external power supply then well and good but if its a USB HDD and if it needs more power then it will not work – These routers with USB provide 500mA power supply on the USB port.

  1. 2 questions wants to ask,

    1) should it support HTTPS site blocking in parental control??

    2) Should it have in-built download manager?? (For downloading torrent or any other file directly in pen drive/HDD which we attached to it)
