Adding External USB Hard Drive to wrt610n

Hi Everyone,

 

I just swapped out D-Link with the wrt610n and couldn't be happier with the new found LAN connectivity.

 

I'm exploring the possibility of adding an external usb hdd to the usb port.  I changed the IP address of the router to 192.168.0.1 to match the rest of my LAN (D-Link network originally).  The thing that bothers me is that the ip adress for the shared hdd shows as 192.168.1.1 in the storage configuration page. 

 

Is this just hardcoded info on the page or does the hdd really have an ip address of 192.168.1.1, compared to the router of 192.168.0.1 ?  If this is real, why can't you change the ip address of the usb storage ?

Just Power Cycle your Network and check if that makes any difference...

Unplug the Power to the Modem and the router, wait for a minute, plug the power cable to the modem and wait until all lights are lit and then plug the router power cable, see if this helps...

No, it doesn't make a difference, must be a bug in the GUI .
