External HDDs connected to USB on router

I have a Plusnet hub and an external HDD case, in which there are 5 HDDs (three physical, partitioned to 5). I have a home network and want to connect these HDDs to the network, rather than just to one PC. I want to do this by using the USB port.

I have successfully connected the two devices and found the HDD on the network. Rather, I have found 2 of the 5. The other HDDs are not showing up. 

Is there a limit to how many external devices are supported in the manner? If not, how do I see/connect the remaining drives?
