Share Photos and Multimedia
You can create your own central storage location for photos and multimedia. This method
eliminates the need to log in to (and pay for) an external photo-sharing site.
To share photos and multimedia with your friends and family:
1. Insert your USB drive into the USB port on the router either directly or with a USB cable.
Computers on your local area network (LAN) can automatically access this USB drive
using a web browser or Microsoft Networking.
2. If you want to specify read-only access or to allow access from the Internet, see Configure
the USB Storage Device and Access Settings on page 68.
Print High-Quality Photos from a Non-Shared Printer
You can print high-quality photos from a non-shared printer. This scenario is for a family that
does not have a print server:
•A family member has photos on a Macintosh computer and wants to print them.
•The photo-capable color printer is directly attached to a Windows computer, but not
shared on the network.
•The Mac and the Windows computer are not visible to each other on the network.
To print high-quality photos from a non-shared printer:
1. On the Mac, access the USB drive by typing \\readyshare in the address field of a web
browser. Then copy the photos to the USB drive.
2. On a Window computer, use a web browser or Microsoft Networking to copy the files from
the USB drive to the computer. Then print the files.
You can also set up a network printer. For more information, see Set Up a Network Printer on
Send Large Files over the Internet
Sending files that are larger than 5 MB can pose a problem for many email systems. The
router allows you to share large files such as PowerPoint presentations or .zip files over the
Internet. You can use FTP to download shared files from the router.
Sharing files with a remote colleague involves the following considerations:
•The two user accounts are admin and guest. The password for admin is the same one
that you use to access the router. By default, it is password. The guest user account has
•On the FTP site, the person receiving the files uses the guest user account and enters the
password. FTP requires that you type something in the password field.
•Be sure to select the FTP (via Internet) check box in the USB Storage (Advanced
Settings) screen. This option supports both downloading and uploading of files.
