Is there a way to connect a Thunderbolt hard drive to an AirPort Extreme?

Your title and your post are two different questions... – CousinCocaine Nov 6 '13 at 16:14

At the moment, the only storage ports on the Airport Extreme is a USB port. So, if your Thunderbolt drive has a USB connector as well, then you can use it, otherwise you will have to wait for Apple to make a Airport Extreme with a Thunderbolt connector.

And it's pretty hard to imagine why they would do that. :) – Dan J Nov 6 '13 at 16:06
