Model: Archer AX6000  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.4 Build 20210719 rel.12163(5553)

I have a Toshiba external 2 TB drive connected to the USB port. The router recognizes it and i can read from it. I cannot however add anything to the drive (write).

I have shared the drive in the router and i have tried using Access Authentication and I have tried it with out Access Authentication with no luck.

I have added this to Windows Credentials using the user name and password i use to access the router. I have also tried to use the username and password that the router shows in the USB sharing TAB (advanced) when Acess Authenication was on.

 

The drive is formatted with NTFS

Hello @Zino1 

 

Please verify how you access the USB drive when it is attached to the USB port of the AX6000, via SMB or FTP. You may go through this FAQ to check and ensure you are accessing the Administrator account, and that you have enabled both Read and Write permissions.

 

You may also follow this FAQ to verify if you can write on another computer.

  @Zino1 I have the identical problem with an AX6000.  I can read using ftp from several clients, but I can't write with any of them.  One TB FAT32 drive.  I've followed the FAQs.  I see that going backwards to SMB v1 might solve the problem, but making my system any less secure is not an option.

 

This problem is outlined hundreds of times on the web, but I've never seen TP-Link actually solve it for anyone.

 

@TP-LINK - When will this be fixed? Thank you.

From the advanced tab in the USB Sharing section, are you enabling Access Authentication?  With that switch enabled, you should be able to create a user with read, write permissions.  I imagine read-only access for non-credentialed connections is the default as a security measure. Once you have a user created with read, write access, you should be able to map a drive to the share using those credentials.

I do believe SMB V1 is needed. Easy to tell. Open a CMD prompt and enter NEW VIEW...

 

Not all of SMB V1 is required and I think the Server part is where the Security flaw is?

Here is what I get:

 

=============

C:\>net view
Server Name            Remark

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
\\HP7855               Samba 3.0.37
\\IRVXPS8940           Irv's XPS8940
\\Lxxxxx-XPS8500      Lxxxxx XPS8500
\\TP-SHARE             samba server
The command completed successfully.

============

 

If it works, fine, if not you'll get an error.

 

It is actually the version of the Samba Server I recall. I had the same problem with Netgear as well... The f/w of the router was running SMB 1. I recall they moved to SMB 3 but not the Samba Server.

 

I can not put external links here, but there is an MS page about this, Google "SMBv1 is not installed by default in Windows 10 version" and you should find it, and it has a note:

 

----------------

Note

You should use this option only on shares that are required by a third-party application for legacy support if the vendor states that it is required.

----------------

 

I've got an AX55 and it is supposed to support SMB V2 from other posts here.

 

I never did try without SMB V1 though?

 

I'll remove V1 and see what happens I guess?

 

EDIT:

 

OK, turned it of, can't read it:

Seems SMB1 is required???
