Belkin will work with 5V DC power but this router draws more than 1A and typical USB port is limited to 1A max. You can either use one of those USB chargers for smartphones/tablets (5V/1.2-1.5A) or get on of these Y-cables from Amazon and replace mini-B connector with your router's power connector
What HDD do you have? Most should work though get a Y cable just in case. Mine would not work without one. Yours might not be getting enough power from 1 USB port on the Wii U. Especially if it's a 7200RPM drive.
Sure thing. That cable will work if your drive has a mini USB connector on it. You can just search Amazon for "USB y cable" to see other types.
I think you need something like this
Maybe its not quite as easy as that. Looks like the ALfa 36nha & 36h require additional power as the Nexus 6P doesnt give out enough. To do that you need a y cable (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003WV5DMO/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item) with an additional power source (like a power cell) or you need a low power WIFI nic like a TL-WN722N. The thing is - seems that the TL-WN722N must be version one or it doesn't have the correct atheros AR 9271 chipset and is unable to get into monitor mode. Also a wifi dongle like a TP-LINK TL-WN725N (if it worked) woudnt even be worth using as it wouldn't be powerful enough to get any frames. Also there is a guide on git on how to enable monitor mode once you get a nic connected (https://github.com/The-Cracker-Technology/ANDRAX-Mobile-Pentest/wiki/How-to-enable-monitor-mode-in-all-devices%3F).MAybe this will save someone a days worth of reading.
Does this drive work in another machine without any problems?
This behavior would occur if:
Driver letter conflict: reboot the machine with the drive present, then in Disk management change the drive letter to one rarely used (like the letter T). Eject, then re-insert
USB ports on computer need drivers reinstalled. Might be BIOS resolved. Might also be due to USB suspend
Antivirus is blocking access
Drive isn't getting sufficient power from the cable used (cables 3+ inches often cause this) so a Y-cable would end that
USB drive controller in hard drive is failing. Disassemble the drive cage and using a new SATA->USB adapter then try again (or insert into computer). Or, adapter option one and option two, works with all drive sizes. If that resolves the problem, here are a few drive cage options: 2.5" cage option one, two, three and 3.5" cage option one, two
Power supply not providing sufficient amperage/wattage
This precise behavior also occurs to USB flash drives that go bad
