    Can this be attached to a router and USB drive to create a NAS?

    a lot of this devices have a problem, big for me. the macbook looses the connection to the ethernet! (happens in windows too, with a lot of port replicators,etc, but appears to be related to the gigabit chip used) you than have to disconnect and reconnect the hub/cable. Can you confirm this is happening with this hub too ? thank you!
