2019 - Same old question: USB connected to router. How to?

Because of the changes with Windows SMB, has this made any difference to how the USB is shared?

USB is installed and connected but, I can't seem to find it.

\\192.168.1.254\Store

or

\\192.168.1.254\Store\Home

Rather depends on whether you have downloaded a compatible version of SMB to your router, doesn't it?

Hi,

You did not say which router you are using? I have a Hub One.

If you looked in "My PC" and expanded Network hopefully you will see PNHUB1 and when expanded you hopefully see usbn where n is a number.

On my router currently I have \\Pnhub1\usb4.

Hope this helps

Dan.

I got this:

Error code 0x80004005

This problem may occur if a file that the Windows Product Activation (WPA) requires is damaged or missing. This behavior occurs if one or both of the following conditions are true: 

  • A third-party backup utility or an antivirus program interferes with the installation of Windows XP.
  • A file that WPA requires is manually modified.

 

Does not work on either:

 

\\Pnhub1\usb

\\Pnhub1\usb1

\\Pnhub1\usb2

\\Pnhub1\usb3

\\Pnhub1\usb4

 

All I can see is this:

Hi,

Under Network you should see two sections;

Computers - here I see my network shares

Other device - Here I see the Hub One when I double click the router home page opens.

My network is also setup as 'Private'

Sorry can't help you with the windows error, however this might help you.
