Connect USB drive to gateway via ethernet to USB adapter

I have a USB drive that I'd like to connect to accessible via the network.  I know Comcast disables the USB ports on the gateway.  If I was to connect the drive to the Ethernet port via an Ethernet to USB adapter would that work?  I'd have to use a female to female adapter between the drive and the Ethernet/USB adapter.  It would be Gateway Enet --> USB --> adapter <--USB <-- Drive.

Hi, they have this adapter on Amazon but I have not try it. Is a great idea.

Could you let me know it works for you?
