  1. Connecting USB to Router to share file's


    I would like to occasionally share file's like TV shows on my home network .

    I don't need a Nas as I do this very infrequently.

    My router does NOT have a USB port.

    Is it possible to connect a USB to my router using a USB to Ethernet adapter and then see those files on my network?

    TIA Bart

    :)

    usb broadban to router

    routers that come with USB, are USB outputs, not inputs.


    You can either use a PC with internet connection sharing to share the broadband, or you can buy a mobile broadband router, probably from your ISP.

    Can't See 1st Router's USB When Connected to 2nd Router

    First, here is my connection:
    I have 2 routers.
    The 1st one is from provider, and has USB Samba Share plugged. This router is the main one with IP 192.168.1.1.
    The 2nd one is in AP Mode, DHCP disabled. The IP is 192.168.1.150.

    Now, I have 3 PCs. 1 PC connected to the 1st router, 2 PCs connected to 2nd router.
    The problem is, PC which connected to the 1st router can see the USB.
    But PCs which connected to the 2nd router can't see the USB.

    These 3 PC can connect to each other and share files/printer seamlessly. The problem is, 2 PC which connected to the 2nd Router can't see the USB in 1st router. While PC which connected to the 1st router can see the USB.

    I tried with my android phone and it can see 3 PC and that USB no matter which router my android connected to.

    Is this Win10 problem? I ran Win 10 64-Bit in these 3 PC.
    Or is there any setting in router/PC to make this USB seen in all PCs regardless which router it connected.

    Phantom router on network


    Recently I've noticed a "phantom" router appearing in my network. The Belkin router is not mine, the Linksys is.

    Properties of the Belkin router list serial number, MAC address, model number, model, manufacturer, but no IP address. It only shows up on my desktop, not the Pro 3's or HP laptop's File Explorer under Network.

    Desktop is connected to network with a Netgear WNDA3100v3 N600 Dual Band USB Adapter - WPA2-PSK security type. Pro 3 and Laptop connect to network with their internal wireless connections

    Haven't noticed any "strange" behavior, or usage, on my machines, but am curious as to why it is appearing in my network.

    Also, any suggestions for a program that will scan the network and list all units "attached" to it?
