Access Router USB

Hello,

I bought a D-Link 1960 router before realising that D-Link has no real support in Europe.

I have done everything I can in the modem's management pages. The USB stick in the modem has a few directories and files, The LED on the router shows that it is
present and while setting up a User the directories on the stick are presented. I select Root and made a user Jim with password January.

The stick does not appear in Total Commander >Network but I do have a Dir-1960 shown; however there is little useful in that apart from a link to the router admin page, File Manager is the same.

On an Android tablet, a search for net shares turns up 192.168.0.1 which accepts the user name and password but displays a blank page, not the USB stick.
Putting \\192.168.0.1 into the Windows 10 search box brings up a blank File Explorer page.

I can find nothing on the Web for this problem and others. The FAQs provided by D-Link are useless only a few FAQs which only go up to Windows 7 and a couple of videos. Their forums are restricted to users in the US. They don't answer emails.


Any help or links will be greatly appreciated.


Regards

Cheemag

Hi,
Not sure if you have access to the manual for your router - click here

I am not familiar with D-Link routers but will help if I can.

Hello,

Yes I have. It's no help.

Of no matter now, I've gone back to using the Netgear Nighthawk whose ReadyShare USB sharing sort of works,

Thanks for your reply.
