Hi Mani,

 

I don't have any Macs to try and configure this on, however looking at these 2 links, the principal appears to be the same.

 

Connecting to the router to enable share:

Mapping the share as a network drive:

Thanks Mycal for the tip, my old Netcomm picked up the1TB Toshiba drive drive straight a way.

 

Thanks to your help, I can access the files on my Samsung tables again.

Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

Thanks for the info on how to set up a shared drive via the usb port on the router.  Does anyone know if there is a way of making this now netowrked drive visible to my Fetch TV box?    Or alternatively if I have a usb drive plugged into the bak of my fetch TV box, can I access it from my laptop via my home network?

Thanks Mycal.  Worked for me aswell. Setting up a HD to be read over the network.

Would you know how i can remove a user account i set up? I tick the box and hit remove but it doesn't remove?

Having the same problem here. Added a user account but it didn't work. Added a second account which worked, but now I can't remove the one I added initially!

Hey Fishcustard, 

 

Have you have any luck removing the user account since posting?

Re: Multimedia on Sagemcom F@st 3864 Router

The inability to remove user accounts is deffinetly something for the Optus staff to look into.

I have been able to successfully add and remove users through Google Chrome on PC and Android without issue.

To be honest I would just factory reset the modem and be done with it, but take your own ability into account there.

 

re: Accessing the content of the network drive (NAS) on FETCH.

This is something that I had wanted to do prior to attaching the drive to the Fetch box directly. You will need to have a PC running acting as a Media server, that is broadcasting the content over the network (google DLNA).

Technically not limited to Windows, but if you're asking here about how, you probably won't want to know about Linux.

This machine could be anything from a Laptop to Desktop to header-less home server or NUC to even "PC on Stick"'s.

 

You could use the built in Windows Media Player:

But my preference would be Plex. https://plex.tv/

 

Your other option would be to purchase a NAS Device with built in DLNA but then that would make this entire thread redundant 🙂
