Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

Hi Guys

 

The USB port on the Sagecom router is disabled through the Optus supplied firmware. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Hollie, thank you for your reply.

 

But the usb device once plugged in is visible via the router web page.

 

 

thanks

Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

Hi Vince,

 

The USB port on the router is not activated through the Optus supplied firmware. It may appear within the router admin pages but any functionality through the USB port is not supported by Optus. Hope this clears it up for you.

Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

Why would Optus disable the USB port on the modem/router?

 

Is there any software/firmware that will enable the ort?

Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

Just adding to craiglaw76's steps.

 

This is my modem model:

Board ID: F@ST3864V2
HardWare Version: 253561846

 

1 - In your web browsers address bar, type 192.168.0.1  (or what ever your modems IP address is)

2 - Click advanced on the left

3 - In the advanced page, click on "Multimedia" and then "Storage Device"

4 - Take note of the volume name of the drive connected. In my case this was "usb1_1"

5 - On the left, click "User Accounts"

6 - In the main section of the window, click add.

7 - CREATE a username and password to use to access the USB drive and enter the USB volume name previously noted. Apply and Save once done.

8 - You wil be taken back to the user accounts overview automatically. I enabled "Samba Server" but am not sure if this needs to be done. I have not tested with it disabled.

9 - For Vista/7 and maybe 8/8.1, Click the Windows Start button and immediately type in "\\192.168.0.1" (without quotations) This will load Windows Explorer and prompt you for Username and Password. Alternatively you can use: Start>Run or Windows Key+R or simply open "My Computer" and type in the address bar at the top.

10 - Enter the username and password which you previously created (it helps to tick "remember my credentials" for future use)

 

You now have access to the USB Drive connected to your modem/router.

You will notice the shared folder will be named the same as your username.

You could even right click on this folder, and choose "Map Network Drive" and assign it a drive letter so that it appears in the regular "My Computer" window.
