I recently had a mobo fry out on a Linux computer and to make a long story short, the HDD was also swapped out and then re-attached to the replacement computer, using a standalone case with a USB connnector.
I'd actually rather hook it up to my home network directly via ethernet, so I can back up files from another computer on it.
Is this possible?
Is there either a simple usb-to-ethernet adapter I can get, or is it possible to just get a cheap case with ethernet connnector and plug that in? Or will this require something more elaborate. Thanks for any advice!
