My old router died, and I want to buy a new one.
Also, if I have to change the router, I want to try to see if I can do a setup like: Router + External Hard Drive + an android application maybe.
I basically want to have a one-way sync of our pictures (my wife and I) to a HDD that is connected to the router.
Sync would be through wi-fi, something like google is doing right now for me, but this time I would like to be in control of the storage.
My question is: what to look for in a router? I wouldn't want to spend too much, but I don't even know what to look for. Is it enough if the router has USB port on it?
I was wondering if there are routers that come with a special android app, or I can just try to look into some "universal" software like this one.
Note: NAS device seems like a good idea, but it seems too expensive.
Thanks for the help.
UPDATE I bought a RT-N18U router, and it has this application specifically made for it, we'll see how it works, I'll let you guys know.
UPDATE 2: I had some errors, but it works fine
