That is odd but some things can definitely cause interference with the WIFI signal.  Glad you got it resolved.  
Happy Gaming!

2.4Ghz is very prone to interference from other electronic devices.

I doubt it's the USB itself, more likely the external drive has little, no, or faulty shielding in it to stop it from causing issues when powered up.

My xbox one dies if anything connected to usb 3 on my laptop - when a hard drive is connected to the xbox!

Try it unplug nearby usb 3 connections and will work perfect - a unworking hd on your usb 3?
