Title: Windows File Sharing (SAMBA) issue
Post by: jc_hwz on December 25, 2014, 09:34:33 PM
HI,
I enable the windows sharing in the setting. However, in the network, I cannot see the sharing file. I mean the router, DIR-880L, is not showing in my network sharing. The only way I can access the router is by typing, "\\192.168.0.1". Is any one know why the router is not showing in the network? The hard diver is connecting in the USB 3.0 port, and the firmware is the latest one.
