I agree with Furry. Dedicated NAS or file server, especially if you are streaming video/movies.

I will have D-Link look into the USB issue and hope I can get some documentation and/or best practices.

Also remember sharing data through the router adds a ton of overhead to the processor and memory. If you have 30 devices connecting, and a bunch of rules such as port forwarding, the router has to process all that on top of the data from a shared drive.

D-Link contacted me again. They told me that it may be a product defect or a bug. And they agreed with me when I told that I will return it to the vendor. There support is very good.

Thank you!

If you really want to use the USB port for a makeshift NAS I would suggest you have a look @ ASUS's offerings ( especially models with Merlin firmware support ) ; they have more robust USB storage options ( some even have embeded dowload/torrent manager in the firmware if that's your thing ) .

I donít really need a usb. I thing that a router that accepts open source firmware is more important.

Do you have a model suggestion?

Thank you!

I wouldn't think this is too expensive.

Something to start with.

The DIR-882 supports open source FW. DD-WRT would the the one to support it.

Furry, I see a D-Track was created 2 weeks ago for your issue (not accessible through \\192.168.0.1) but FTP works and media player software. They verified the issue but there was no resolution and the case was closed  ::)  I will reopen in but just need your specs - what hard drive model/size, OS, browser, etc. Can you map the drive but just not access it? I know on windows sometimes it will have the red X showing it disconnected but if you double-click it to access the drive it opens and works.

Thanks for reopening it.  :-\

I'll get more details when I get home however It's a 1.5Tb external USB drive enclosure with it's own Power supply. USB 3.0 supporting. Windows 10x64 Enterprise and 7x64 Ultimate. two different PCs. Explorer. Can't map drive and the drive is not seen in Networking under Devices. Only seen under Networking/Media devices and I can select that icon and it opens in media player and I can stream there.

I have tried other USB drives with a USB3.0 to SATA adapter cable with a FAT32, I think it's a 320Gb laptop drive I had in prior router testings, and that does the same thing. I have many drives to test with.  ;D

I'll confirm details after work today.

Thanks for the info. I added cejoos's issue and from another thread slow transfer rates. Not sure if you (or cejoos or me_iauras) are experiencing that.

I can't verify the speeds as I can't get connected to perform that verification.

I'm not using DIR 882 anymore. It is in the original box, just waiting for be returned. The router started to restart during online game. Using my old router. lol

Wondering if in part the router you got is a faulty unit from the start.

I haven't noticed mine restarting while gaming and I have two game consoles and online at the same time.

The router doesn't advertise itself in the network as a SMB share ( as other Windows clients or standalone NASes do in network Neighborhood  ) but in Explorer if you input the direct path \\<router_IP> or \\<router_IP>\<USB Device Name> you should get a prompt to input the credentials to browse the contents of the drive (the USB device's name should be visible in the router's GUI when configuring to which folder give a user access to ) and after that be able to browse the contents of the drive
There might be an issue with reconnecting to the USB drive  ( 1TB Hitachi  HDD , USB port powered  in my case ) if the device to which the share was mapped has gone to sleep / was restarted because at least in my case with the SMB share mapped to my NAS ( QNAP , obviously Linux based NAS appliance ) it's still accessible after more than 1 week since I started testing it ; the NAS was on all this time obviously . Keeping alive the connection maybe prevents the router's SMB daemon to stall ; the share has also been accessible ( by manually imputing the path in the explorer address bar ) all this time from my Windows 10 clients when I tried to browse it's contents for testing purposes .

Thanks for this info. What I was looking for. I'll give this a try again and see.
I presume I should use the name that is given in the routers UI under USB? I only see the DLNA name of the router when USB Share is enabled.

Yep ; the device's name from the GUI

In Win Explorer just input the correct path in the address bar .

The DLNA server name is indeed the router's name .

Awesome. I think we should put this in a FAQ so I and others will know.  ;)
