Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 0.9.1 v009e.0 Build 200116 Rel.60756n

--- Please note that my issue is with an Archer VR2100, not an VR2800... Model dropdown missing Archer VR2100. ---

 

Router Archer VR2100 - version V1

Firmware 1.1.0 0.9.1 v009e.0 Build 200116 Rel.60756n


I have a 3TB Toshiba V300 3TB USB HDD that I plug into my TP-Link ARCHER VR2100 router.

 

The router is recognising, and mounting the HDD, but in the console, the drive shows as 0GB, and so the content is inaccessible.

I tried FAT32/exFAT/NTFS without change.

 

HDD is OK - If i plug into the PC, the content is accesible.

Good day.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

Later I would send you a firmware and please try to test this firmware and check if it could fix this issue.

Thank you very much.

Hello, I have similar issue with my VR2100, but I cannot see any USB device at all. I tried 3 flash discs, external harddrive and printer, but none of them was recognized, 'Scan' also didn't find anything. What could be the issue? Thank you Firmware: 1.1.0 0.9.1 v009e.0 Build 200116 Rel.60756n Hardware: Archer VR2100 v1 00000000
