Connecting a USB Drive to the PlusOne router

Hi All,

Been on Plusnet a few weeks now and had the great idea to connect a USB 1TB HDD to my router so I could back up the laptops in the house and share files etc. Only thing is that although it's shown as connected to the router I can't see the drive anwhere on the wireless side of things.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Pete

You'll need to set it up as a network device.

Start with \\your-router-name and see what that shows

Thanks for the quick reply Browni, I have tried this but it comes back saying unable to connect? Not sure if it's an issue with the drive but as it works when connected directly to the laptop will back up that way for now until I can find the fix.

Thanks again!!

Pete
