I have connected my LaCie rugged drive to the router and would like to use it as backup storage and as a way to stream video to my PS3.When I go to my advanced settings for the router and go to the storage heading I can see my LaCie and its specifications. There is a button next to it that says "claim", which I press, but nothing happens.I don't have the option to create a shared folder, and I can't access the drive from my Mac.On a somewhat related note, I've enabled the media server and can find it on my PS3, but there is nothing in the root folders. How do I put stuff (movies, music,etc.) into these root folders?
Does either of them support large HDD. I have an external 4-bay RAID 5 enclosure (4.5 TB usable space) I would like to connect through USB to the router and host the files on it.i can't find any data from either router if they can support this so I thought I would ask.
On the main floor I have a Linksys E3000, hooked up to my ADSL modem along with laptop #1 which has all my video and photos on Picasa. Laptop is on 5ghz, running speed at 300. I'm running the E3000 in dual mode (running 2.4ghz and 5ghz at the same time.) I have 2 different network names mjames5gz and mjames24gz.
In my basement, I have a laptop running on 5ghz and an IP camera running 2.4 ghz. the signal in the basement is on the low side for both. Under Wireless network connection, I am getting around 100 on Speed vs.300 on the laptop.... The basement is fully finished so I can't run cables to the basement easily. What could I buy so I can stream videos from laptop to laptop on 5ghz. Would also be nice to have the 2.4ghz signal boosted as well
When I go upstairs, both laptop read 300 ghz and I can stream between them just fine.
I have a Maxtor 160Gb external HDD and want to use it as a network drive.So I go to the routers login page and choose for storage to set it up. I did this once and because I wanted to change a few things I deleted the share and changed the users and usergroup that I've made.Now I can't created a share anymore, also tried another disk(flashdrive) nothing seems to work.The only thing I didn't do is reset to factory default, but that's the last thing I want to do.I use the E3000 router with firmware 1.0.04
I have Linksys e3000 , I used the web interface to set up the storage. I also from the Administration option of the Storage inside Web Interface changed the netbios name or Device name to the one I like. Now the name does not resolve to the ip address. It used to when I had recently unpacked. I can still access my drive by IP address.
I am very pleased with my purchase of the E3000 so far. However, one function seems to allude me. One of the main reasons for purchasing this router was because of its Media Server functionality. I wanted to be able to stream to my UPnP devices (ps3, xbox360, etc) without having to keep my power hog of a PC running. I have set up the HD using the Storage tab of the Advanced Router Settings, and created several Shares on the Media Server tab. The good news is that I am able to access the share on my PS3. The bad news is that I can't on my Xbox360s. As the Xbox360s has built in wireless N, I would really like to be able to stream to that system.
I updated to Firmware Version: 1.0.04. And now I can't logon to the router when my storage device is turned on. However, I can logon to the router when the device is off. If I turn the power on the storage device and try to navigate the router it says ".....Can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.1.1." Then I have to reboot the router to be able to log back on.
It's been a while since I sent into my router and messed with any of the Storage setting. I recently decided to change things around so I recently went in the router and attempted to access the Storage page but all I get is a blank page with this address http://192.168.1.1/storage/Disk_Management.asp.
I have an e300 router with my external hdd connected via the USB port. I am trying to figure out how to access the hdd remotely. I am not trying to get to it through remote desktop access. I have my laptop that I take with me when away from home but I would like to be able to access the hdd via Internet.
I have a E3000 and just upgraded my Mac with the OS X Mountain Lion. I can't access my external HD anymore, although when I go to the router set up, on the storage tab, the router appears to recognize the HD.
I had my external drive plugged into the e3000 with the network drive mapped on 2 laptops. One day my connection was slow so I backdoored the router ip (I didn't use cisco connect) to reset the router from my iPhone. I'm not sure exactly what was changed, but the partition disappeared from the drive. I've used a couple file recovery programs to try and retrieve the 250+ Gb data that was on the drive with no luck. They only find "deleted" files. Not the 13k files that were there and not deleted. The drive was never bootable. What to be used to recover the files.
I correct in understanding that when an external hd is connected to the e3000 via usb, that i can read and write to it, but i cannot delete files from the external drive? i have been trying to figure this out for a while and cannot delete files after i write them.
We have a D-Link DIR655 wireless router on our network. I have purchased two Seagate 1TB network storage units and would like to have one for me and one for my wife. It seems that the router will not support two, because they try to access the same port. How can I plug these two storage units to the router and have access for each of us to one device?

Just checked that my ISP provides me with two Static IP's, called them and they confirmed its running, however the modem that they gave me only has one ethernet port, to which my Linksys E3000 is connected. I am trying to set up this new IP and dedicate it to my new WHS 2011 machine, so I can remote manage it. It having a static IP of its own isn't much of a problem, but I would like to know how to do so.
I have Astaro UTM running on an old computer as my only firewall right now. The Astaro also serves as my DHCP server. My Wifi is provided by a Linksys E3000 running DD-WRT software. NAT/SPI are disabled on the E3000, and it forwards DHCP requests to the Astaro. All my network clients connect via wifi/ethernet to the E3000.
All clients --> E3000 (no firewall) --> Astaro --> www
I am considering setting up my own personal cloud server using a Synology NAS that I can access remotely. I would also like to remotely access my Surveillance DVR. I would like to access them via VPN or portforwarding. I do not want to use DMZ.
I would like to utilize the SPI firewall on the E3000 to provide an extra layer of defense. I would like the NAS and the DVR to be on an external LAN between the Astaro and the E3000...and all other clients being on an internal LAN behind the E3000. I have the necessary switches/cables to make this work.
My question is...How do I configure the E3000? Can I have both the internal and external LANs on the same subnet? Do I have to use the NAT on the E3000? I'd rather not...since that will render the Astaro's reporting functions rather worthless.
I would like the Astaro to remain the only DHCP server. I would like all internal LAN clients to be able to reach out to the external LAN/WAN...but the external LAN should not be able to reach into the Internal.
I updated my E3200 to 1.0.04 to try to resolve a wireless dropping issue. Now the connected USB storage no longer responds correctly (very delayed if connecting at all). When I try to provision new storage via the routers admin page, I do not get the permissions page.
I have a 1TB Western Digital drive connected to my home EA4500 router. Connecting to media server using SMB protocol (192.168.1.1) works fine. I am moving abroad for an extended amount of time, though, so I would also like to connect to this USB drive using FTP. Using the new Cisco Connect Cloud interface, I have enabled FTP sharing for the USB storage device with port 21 and using standard UTF-8 encoding. Whenever I try to connect to the FTP server using my router login credentials, I get the following error message:"There was a problem connecting to the server xx.xxx.xxx.xx. This file server will not allow any additional users to log on. Try to connect again later"
When I connect my WD My Book Essential 3TB (which is listed as officially compatible with the E4200), I get the following screen:
The E4200 does not detect my hard drive, nor is there a bar saying "detecting".
My problem started when I could not create any new folders through finder. I had to store new files in the root folder. Every time I entered the admin password, I got a message saying I did not have sufficient permission to perform such a task. I then went on to create a new user within the admin group and continued getting the same message. Finally, I formatted the drive directly through my computer and reconnected. And now my HDD is not detected at all.
I have an iMac running OS X Lion. The HDD is question has been formatted to Mac OS extended (journaled).
I have an e4200v2 with latest firmware. I have changed the administrator password from "admin" to a password of my own.I have recently added a USB hard drive to the router, and it says that admin password to access the share drive is the same as the admin password as the router, but it is not. The password to acces the USB drive is "admin" and there is nowhere to change this password to something secure.
I am using Window 7 and the WRT610N router. I got a bufflao 1 TB USB harddisk connected to the router.My PC can access to the Harddisk. However, but my pc showing the USB harddisk is full. I checked, there are less than 200GB file on the disk. why is that?
I got a refurbished EA4500 (directly from Cisco) last week. I have been having a few issues, which I have found (not too great) workarounds for. However, the latest issue has me stumped, and is unacceptable.Whenever I am transferring files between 2 computers, I get kind of OK speed (5 MB/s). However, while this transfer happens, no other device can connect to the net. Actually, even trying to go to router home page (192.168.1.1) times out.The clients still say they are connected to the router, but I just can't get anywhere.As soon as the file transfer finishes, everything goes back to normal.EA4500 replaced a WRT54G. Never had any problems with that router. It was such a workhorse. Just needed to upgrade to a n-router.I am on the latest non-cloud firmware.I have reduced the MTU size to 1200. Not sure that matters.
My WRT610N media server is not serving up large, MKV files (>1GB). I have a 500 GB Maxtor connected with external power.The media server serves smaller files just fine (although they are not MKV files). The disk is formatted as NTFS. I can access the large, MKV files via mapping network drive, so I know they are present on the disk and they are intact; but they media server does not show them.
we are currently using a modem router LINKSYS WAG120N Wireless-N ADSL Router but are not satisfied. lots of dead zones and I think that there are too many users for this AP. last count gave around 20 users. so I'm looking for a solution to be able to handle 20+ concurrent connections and with large coverage - 600 m² .
I have TV set box connected to modem router supplied by ISP provider. To the same router I connected EA 4500 to which I wired connected Network Hard Disc at which I store music, photos and films, which I can not access via TV set box. If I connect Hard Disc direct to the modem router to which set box is connected, access works fine.
Whar shall I do to establish accesability of Network Hard Disc over all network ?
