DIR-632 Shareport not working
« on: December 14, 2015, 01:28:50 PM »

I had this router running DD-WRT for a while but switched back to D-Link firmware (V1.03) recently  in order to get a Samsung Wireless printer/scanner to work on my network.

The router's firmware is set to Shareport on the USB Settings page.

It does not recognize any of masny USB thumb drives I tried nor a USB printer.  I think it may be a power issue as the LEDs in my thumb drives do not light up.

Is there a way to "turn on" the USB port?

I don't think I ever tried the USB port before so don't know if it ever worked on this particular router.

Link>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?

What SP version are you currently using?
Is the USB thumb drive formatted for NTFS or FAT32? Whats the size of the USB thumb drive your testing with?

This is a older model router so not sure if the USB port will work smoothly as expected.

Hardware: A1
Firmware: 1.03 (Latest on Dlink site)
Region: US
Shareport Utility: 3.0.1 R1 (Windows 8.1 did not not like the SXUPTP.inf of 4.30 and would kill the installation.)
Thumbs drives are FAT32.

Try v4.50:

And try one drive formatted for NTFS.

Installed SP 4.5.0 (which does install on 8.1.)

Reformatted one of my thumb drives to NTFS.

FYI: SP does "see" the router and recognizes it as a DIR-632.

Again the LED does not light up on the thumb drive so my suspicion is that the USB port on the  router is not getting power.

Did you power off the router, plug in the thumb drive then power ON the router and try again?

Do you have a external USB drive with a power supply by chance?

I presume that you have tried other thumb drives and not seeing any activity?

Yes tried unplugging the router, plugging in the thumb drive and plugging the router back in.

Still no luck.

All of my USB drives are thumb drives with no external power.

Also, the USB cable I have for my printer has an LED in each end and those do not light up when plugged in either.

Ok, I presume that the USB port on the router maybe faulty then.  :-\

I suspect you are correct that it is bad. ::)

I can get a used DP-301U on eBay for cheap which would circumvent this issue.

Thanks for you help.

Yes I recommend a USB to LAN networking print server for printers. Good Luck.
