SMB for DIR-510L
« on: March 09, 2015, 05:48:36 AM »

Hi everyone

I am trying to get either SMB, AFS or FTP access to the files stored via USB on the router. Is there anyway to do this, or a chance that this can be implement in the firmware? This will increase the functionality of the router which I am finding limited at the moment as I am required to go through shareport or the UPnP every time I want to access files.

Ideally I would like to be running a DLNA server on a roaming device such as a tablet, laptop, or phone, but the UPnP is coming up short as I cannot map any drives that the router is hosting. Other routers have SMB access, why doesn't this one, or at least why isn't the SMB access obvious?

My mac will access the router through the IP and it will ask me for a password. Eg. in finder I click connect to and type the address, eg. ftp://192.168.101.1/usb_a1/Media and I will be asked a password, but it will then fail to log on by either saying that there are is a user logged in and to try again later, or it will just say incorrect password. I have tried multiple port numbers by typing in the address as follows

ftp://192.168.101.1:8181/usb_a1/Media or ftp://192.168.101.1:21/usb_a1/Media

but this has not worked either.

Any ideas?

Cheers guys

ink>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Can try this:
How to map a USB Drive to your PC without using Shareport software
It may be that it's not supported.

Have you tried using SharePort SW?

I tried the advice listed on the "How to map a USB drive to your PC without using Shareport software" thread. No joy.

Hardware Version: S/N: QI41E8000212
Firmware: v1.03b03
Region: Australia

Any extra help?

Please........

Kind regard

Try the SP software....if that fails, I recommend phone contacting your regional D-Link support office and ask about this...

Yeah so the sp software fails. I contacted support and they said that SMB is not available. This was very disappointing!
