First time Chromebook user. I have an Acer 156 Chrome OS [FONT=Roboto]Version 62.0.3202.97 (Official Build) (64-bit)[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]
[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]I have an external USB drive that contains all my media. I want to map it so the Chromebook can read/write to the drive.[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]
[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]The drive is plugged into my TPLink Archer router via USB.[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]I have this same drive mapped to my NVidia Shield as "smb://192.168.0.1/volume1/Media"[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]
[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]I am using the Network File Share app on my Chromebook, that path doesn't work[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]
[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]Do I need to use the "tplink.net" domain since I am connecting via Wifi, instead of wired LAN?[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]
[/FONT]
[FONT=Roboto]I've tried every path variation I can think of[/FONT]

thanks for the idea

The canyouseeme test reported that Port 80 was not open. My IP address on the Chromebook is dynamic, so I need to change it to static? Then open Port 80 on the Archer router config page?

Are these the instructions I need to follow? http://www.tp-link.com/us/faq-780.html
I don't see the "Folder Sharing" option under "USB Settings"

Attention Linux OS users;
I went back to using kernel 4.12.x since 4.13 caused networking issues. There seems to be a work-a-round to this problem. Have a look here;
https://www.happyassassin.net/2017/11/03/linux-kernel-4-13-and-smb-protocol-version-fun/
I haven't had time to try the suggested options with kernel 4.13.x, but seems to work for others.
Up until kernel 4.13, the kernel’s default SMB protocol version was 1.0. So when you mount an SMB share, if you don’t explicitly specify a protocol version with the vers= mount option, with kernel 4.12 or earlier, SMB 1.0 will be used.
With kernel 4.13, the default protocol version is changed to 3.0. So now, when mounting SMB mounts that don’t explicitly specify a version, your system will request 3.0.


SMB 1.0/CIFS protocol needs updating to 3.0
It would be nice if the router firmware was updated more often to fix issues. (hint, hint TP-Link)
