ReadySHARE lets you access and share a USB drive connected the router’s USB port.
The router works with most USB-compliant external flash and hard drives. If your USB device
requires nonstandard drivers, it is not compatible. For the most up-to-date list of USB drives

Connect or Safely Remove a USB Drive
The router supports both read and write for FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, and Linux file systems
(EXT2 and EXT3). Some USB external hard drives and flash drives require drivers to be
loaded into the Windows computer before the Windows computer can access the USB
device. Such USB devices do not work with the router.
To physically disconnect a USB drive from the router USB port, first log in to the router and
then safely remove it.
To connect a USB storage device:
1. Insert your USB storage device into the USB port of the router.

It might take up to two minutes before the USB device is ready for sharing.
