(DSL-2750U) restrict access to usb storage
« on: July 11, 2012, 05:36:27 AM »

Hi, I have  DSL-2750U and I just setup the USB storage with an external HDD. I use a mac and I mounted the drive on my mac. I'm planning to use it for backup purpose but first of all I need to make sure that the other computers connect to the same router does not have access to the HDD. Is this possible ?

Thanks in advance.

It's possible any one connected to the modem has access. I would review the user manual to see if the 2750 has options to restrict user access to the USB device.

For DSL 2750U router ( firmware version - IN_1.10 ) there is an option in router settings page under Advanced Setup->StorageService->UserAccounts to protect the usb storage with a user name and password.

Related links are here and here. Problem is, even if you configure, the usb storage is accessible with out any restrictions to all users at \\routerIp\u_disk\usb1_1. About the username/password configured, I was never able to access drive with it.

I contacted regional dlink support person(India) over chat. He appeared less knowledgeable than a layman. Will try getting L2 technician over phone. Also emailed gplcode at dlink dot com for source code of DSL 2750U router. No replies yet. I feel it is best to read the source instead of contacting all these technicians who appears to have no clue. Even worse is the manual (download here). If any thing is requires slightly complex configuration, manual will not mention it for sure.

FYI, there is no GPL code for this model modem.

Ok. That is why I was not able to see DSL 2750U at the gpl code download site.

D-Link along with this router modem(DSL 2750U) purchase, gave a pamplet, telling we can request for GPL code. Why did they gave it if no GPL code was there ? So the gpl option is also ruled out. I am almost sure L2 technician is not going to answer any of these.
