It's available in eight different colors, it doesn't require an external source of power, and it has a great rating on Amazon with thousands of reviews. You can use your Wi-Fi router to create a network share of the folder if that function is available, but I prefer to use Windows. Report your issue Only associates can see this.

As far as I can tell, once you're done using the phone as Internet tether and want to go back to the Ethernet-port WAN connection, there's no need to change anything in the router settings -- just unplug the phone from the router.

Connecting Your Printer to Your Router

Share network of Android mobile phone to the router (USB 3G tethering)

One option is to connect your printer directly to the USB port on a print-server-equipped wireless router, if the router is conveniently located. The other option is to connect the USB printer to a wireless printer server device. Using a wireless print server that supports Wi-Fi-Protected Setup makes the process extremely simple. Generally speaking, higher end routers will offer this functionality.

Turn on the printer and wait at least 60 seconds for the router to recognize it. Run your router's software on your computer to configure the router to turn on print server mode. Some routers, such as the Apple AirPort Extreme, do not require you to do this step. Install your router's virtual port driver along with the driver for the printer on any computer that you want to have access to the shared printer. The mobile web version is similar to the mobile app.

Folks If your router does not have a USB adaptor then it will not work as the firmware will not handle it. I believe ur problem is the port on ur router is not active, per something on CenturyLinks documentation I read last night. It says it will be active in future firmware releases, which explains why u have no options in the software user interface.

I found this out as I tried to connect my external hard drive as well. Please could you tell me what should I enable in the router to have the possibility to share the Disk?

I tried my thumb drive in my Netgear router , I noticed that the drive was getting hot so I took it out in view of the potential risk of fire , why would this drive get hot?

After typing in the IP address of the router I cannot find storage or file sharing settings as described above. The usb ports are only a power supply. I see it with my iphones, pc, iPads. I can download no problem. But upload to my HD can only be done with a pc. I want to empty my iPhone and not have to go thru iTunes.
