I have two existing external drives USBd to an LT. Sadly (?) I have 3 LTs. I'd like a NAS with about 250GB that I can ethernet to the router and then USB the externals the NAS resulting in about 500GB (more than sufficient for my needs).

Any suggestions?

Those are a couple of options. You can also find a couple of devices from Linksys with storage link that will do what you want.

Some are routers/switches, and this that you can still find.

I upgraded to an Infrant NAS before Netgear bought them.
