Unfortunately the link to the Sagemcom website is dead, and the Optus one was next to useless for me.
Here is a Quick Dummies Guide to setting up your Fileshare on a USB plugged into your modem. I just couldn't find this information anywhere.
1. Web into your modem
2. Click on the Settings Icon of the USB device. Ensure both DLNA and File Sharing are ON to maximise connectivity with all network devices.
3. Go back to the mainpage. Click on the USB Icon (in bottom left box), then click on Mass Storage tab.
4. Copy either of the two links provided as instructed. Here is the first and most generic one, which should work: \\mygateway\Disque_partage
5. Paste this into the address field of File Explorer. You should now be able to explore the contents of your USB and write to it as if locally connected
It will also appear as a network location on LHS in Explorer. If you Right click it and Pin to Quick Access", it will appear there every time you open File Explorer.
I don't know if it matters, but my USB drive was formatted in exFat.
I'm still having issues seeing its contents from my Panasonic TV via DLNA but suspect it's more likely to be the TV than the modem
Hope this helps
Hey @idonthaveausern just so we are on the same page, by USB were you referring to a Wireless service purchased through Optus? If this was the case, the device will not be required to be plugged into a modem.
Have you had a look into our Device Guides? You will be able to cross check the settings and features to get things up and running.
Should you continue to have issues, I would recommend having a chat to our Messenger teams whom will be able to look into your services and advise further. Our teams are available 24/7 via the Optus App -Quade

Did you follow my "dummies" guide above. If so, what operating system are you using?
If it's Windows, you may have to enable the SMB client on your PC. You can google how to do this, but happy to help if you get stuck.
