Adding a Drive

You can share a USB hard drive or flash drive to your network via your router's USB port.  Once connected, you can share files and music with other computers and devices within your network.

 

Step 1:
Plug your USB hard drive into the USB port on the back of your router.

Step 2:
When the light above the USB port is lit, your drive is now available to computers on your network.

NOTE:  You can also manually check the status of your shared drive by visiting the USB Print and Storage Manager, found under the Belkin Router Manager icon displayed in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac®).
 

Other USB hard disks require more power than the router's USB port provides.  In these cases, you may notice the drive failing to power ON or remaining ON for a short time.  If your disk has an optional power supply, please use it while the disk is attached to your router.
 

Adding a Printer

You can add a printer to your network via your router's USB port.  Once connected, you can print from various computers and wireless devices within your network.

 

Step 1:
Plug your printer's USB cable into the USB port located on the back of your router.

Step 2:
When the light above the USB port is lit, your printer is available to computers on your network.

NOTE:  You can manually check the status of your printer by visiting the USB Print and Storage Manager, found under the Belkin Router Manager icon displayed in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac®).
 

Each computer that will use the printer must have both the Belkin software and the printer's driver installed.  If the print driver is not installed, you will be asked to install it by the Belkin USB Print and Storage Manager.
 

Adding Other USB Devices

USB devices other than your hard drives and printers may also be shared via your router.

 

Step 1:
Plug your device into the USB port located at the back of your router.

Step 2:
When the light above the USB port is lit, your device is available to computers on your network.
 

Computers running the USB Print and Storage Manager will be able to make use of the shared device.  Both are found under the Belkin Router Manager icon displayed in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac®).
