Share Large Files with Colleagues
Sending files larger than 5 MB can pose a problem for many email systems. The router
allows you to share very large files such as PowerPoint presentations or .zip files with
colleagues at another site. Rather than tying up their mail systems will large files, your
colleagues can use FTP to easily download shared files from the wireless modem router.
To share files with a remote colleague:
1. To protect your network, set up security. Create a user name and password for the
colleague with appropriate access.
2. If you want to limit USB drive access to read-only access, from the wireless modem router
USB Storage (Basic Settings) screen, click Edit a Network folder. In the Write Access field,
select admin, and then click Apply.
Note: The password for admin is the same one that you use to access the
wireless modem router. By default it is password.
3. Enable FTP via Internet in the USB Storage (Advanced Settings) screen. See Configure
USB Storage Advanced Settings on page 70.
