Hi.

 

My name is Ian and i'm new to this group.

 

Here si my problem.  I have a Cisco EA4500 router into wich i've plug an WD hard drive via a USB cable.

When the HDD is connected to the rooter, the ownership of the folders and files changes to root(unix/user) so I can't delete anything.  I've tried changing ownership, didn't work.  I've plug to HDD directly to my computer, change the ownership to admin, but when I plug it in the router again, ownership changes to root(unix/user) and I lose all control again.  Can anyone help me with this problem?  I'm running windows 7.

 

Ian

Odds are you will have to user the Cisco router to administer the drive when it is connected.

http://192.168.1.1 a screen should pop up asking for a username(UN) and password(PW).

 

By default

UN = admin

PW = admin 

 

You need to change those. Look for something to do with Administration. You are looking to change the Router password NOT the wireless. Altho you need to set up that too lol

 

On the left once you are in you should see - USB Storage. You have to set up users and permissions in there.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
