I recently bought Seagate Go Flex 2TB Wireless Home drive and installed it on 3 computers at my home and it was working fine with my home network.
Recently I bought a Netgear N600 router and attached it to my modem and also attached my hard disk to the router aswell. So now when I am connected to my home netwrok via my modem my hard drive is on remote access but I am unable to access its contents. When I launch seagate share it never opens.
Now I have tried connecting from my office as well on remote access but the drive doesnt open at all... Please help me immediately as i really need to access my hard drive remotely!

What is this Seagate Go Flex 2TB Wireless Home drive of which you speak? Afaik the only wireless drive is the Seagate Satellite, but I don't think they come in 2TB.
If we are talking about the Goflex Home, check that UPnP is enabled in the router.
Test Port forwarding http://support.goflexhome.hipserv.com/en/router/te
Try re-booting the router and the GFH.
(I am assuming that when you are connected to your LAN the GFH is working OK and it is just remote access that isn't)
ps. if you need remote access to your files I recommend ftp - it is faster and more reliable than http access

I have tested the ports and all of them are closed.
But in Network Services of GoFlex Home's Administration area , I have selected yes for both Enable FTP access to your local LAN and internet.
Now how to open the ports that are closed?

That is why you need to enable UPnP on your router, to allow devices to configure ports.
The alternative is to manually set ports. A link on the test port forwarding page should show how to do that on Netgear routers
Edit: The link isn't where I said, here it is http://support.goflexhome.hipserv.com/en/router/ne
