Hi everyone,

 

Could you please teach me how to mount a Archer A7 USB Storage on Chromebook?

 

I downloaded and installed the "Network File Share for Chrome OS" app from Chrome Web Store in my Chromebook and follow instructions found from web to tried to set up it, but it always ends with an error "Share could not be mounted". My Archer A7 USB settings are shown as follow:

 

 

 

In the Router Manual, there is no instructions for setting up on Chrome OS device, and I tried to find it from web but could not find one too.

 

Thank you in advance>

Connect to the wireless network of the Archer A7. When you have the "Mount File Share" window for the "Network File Share for Chrome OS" open where it asks for all the information put:

 

Share Path:

 

smb:\\TP-Share (back slash not forward slash "/")

 

Username:

 

admin

 

Password:

 

admin

 

The username and password I just put the default, user whatever is your current admin login into the router. What you can also do is test with a Windows computer to see or make sure the USB drive is working.

Thank you. I tried it but it says "Share path is incorrectly formatted".

It may not like the backslashes like on Windows, what if you try the forward slashes?

@BoF @All 

 

I am not able to find "Network File Share for Chrome OS" anywhere. it is a 404 error.

I have tried "Add file share" but it just gives "Error mounting share"

Please suggest

Another similar extension is "File System for Windows".

 

For the share path, use the IP of the router so:

 

smb:\\192.168.0.1
