I need SMB2 for Readyshare on Netgear CG3000v2 how do I get it?

I would like to use Readyshare for a drive plugged into my Optus supplied Netgear CG3000v2  modem.  My laptop has Windows 10 and I cant connect to the readyshare because I get an error:

"You can't connect to the file share because it's not secure. This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack.  Your system requires SMB2 or higher. For more info on resolving this issue, see:"


My modem is:

Hardware VersionR2.05a
Firmware VersionV2.08.07


How do I get SMB2 on my modem?
