Belkin N+ router- accessing usb drive

Postby spo00n on Thu Jun 30, 2011 2:11 pm

While this is pretty mundane, It occurred to me this would be of help to some, especially if presented with a puzzling password option and having only instructions for windows & mac os.
A usb drive plugged into a Belkin N+ router can be accessed simply in LinuxMint with samba:
In Dolphin or Nautalis...
smb://router address/drive name (i.e.: smb://192.168.2.1/usb-drive-name/)
If prompted enter:
Username: guest
password: leave empty
You will now have access to the contents of the usb drive attached to the router's usb port.
From a browser:
smb://router address/drive name (i.e.: smb://192.168.2.1/usb-drive-name/)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Please post howtos in that forums
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
