The USB port on the router can be used to connect an external USB hard drive or flash disk. Computers that are connected to the network will be able to access the Shared Drive if they have login credentials such as admin or guest.

 

NOTE: Before connecting your external USB hard disk to the router’s USB port, make sure your hard disk is already formatted in either NTFS or FAT32 file system using your computer to avoid any difficulties.

Guess it's time to buy a new access storage?

Re: nas200

How long have you owned that NAS200?  can you check if the firmware is up to date?  go to the web UI, Administration and scroll down to the system status.  the Firmware version should be there. :smileyhappy: 

 

Not sure what the latest firmware version is as I couldn't find it here:

But... you can try CNET.com for the firmware upgrade file.  You just need to back up your files first before you do the whole upgrade process so you don't lose any of the files you have (most people forget to backup their files and end up blaming Cisco for losing them).  

 

Once you have upgraded, try resetting the router, then reconnect and reconfigure again.)  

 

Hope that helps.
