First dumb suggestion: make sure phone is connected to the right wifi/network.
Less dumb question: what model router is it? and are you sure it supports samba and the file system you have the drive formatted to? and make sure it shows up on a PC.
Reason i make these suggestions:
I have a Technicolor TG582n, which has a USB port for doing just this, sadly, however, it only supports FAT32, so if the drive is formatted in anything else such as EXT3 or NTFS, it simply wont work. Another step i have to take is to set up the router to use the drive, by going to the webgui and initialising it (setting it to managed)
Another thing would be to check is if it's not actually sharing the drive over a different protocol such as DLNA/UPnP, in which case, you want an app such as UPNPlay from the market to view the share on your router. though mine also supports SMB so it shows up as TECHNICOLOR\ on my Root Explorer and in the network computers on the computer.
Hope this helps you get to the bottom of it.
