I would like to connect my lacie 1tb external hard drive to the router and be able to access the hard drive from macbook wirelessly without the router being connected to anything else but the external hard drive, is this possible?

Just plug in the hard drive to the router via usb. Make sure your hard drive has power too. Then go to the router's config page and click create a share under the storage tab. The user manual has a more detailed description of this process.

Yes it might happen as router broadcast the signal if it is turned ON .

Check if your computer is connected to the wireless network of your Linksys E4200 .

If yes then you can access the Hard Drive as they both are in same network .
