Hello, want to ask is there any solution for my problem?

Have non smart LG TV with one usb port and no wifi
Want connect external HDD to TV over USB but at the same time want to have connected (somehow) external HDD to my PC to download movies.
Is there any external HDD with build in wifi or something like that?

Thank you for responds.
 
Yes there are WIFI HD, No it won't solve your problem.

PC talk to WIFI HD via some LAN protocol. Your TV has no such protocol, if it can talk to an HD at all, it needs to be physically hooked up to the USB port.

One way to solve your problem you need to buy a "cloud" type HD, oftentimes called a NAS (Network Attached Storage) with DLNA capability. Either your TV already can talk DLNA or you add an external box like ROKU which understands DLNA.
