Can i attach a hard drive to my plusnet fibre router

With my old belkin router (F5D8635-4) I had a freecom HD connected and mapped through my laptop as a network drive to store and view photos etc. Can i do this with the new fibre Router supplied by plusnet?

The router does have DLNA capability, not sure how good it is though.
So it can share files to smart TVs, bluray players, games consoles, etc.
It should also be available to PCs and Notebooks on the network.
I know my TV detects the router, but I don't have anything connected to the routers USB port for it to actually work.

AFAIK you can. For the record though, I think it's only the fibre routers that still have the USB port. The ADSL firmware-flashed ones don't any more.
