Chromebook readyshare network disk

Chromebook has a new app SMB (File System for SMB/CIFS and Windows(R)) for network disks. I have a netgear R6100 with a readyshare disk which I successfully accessed  with a MAC, WIndows 7 computer and my android tablet. However, I can not get it to work on my chromebook. I tried smb:\\readyshare, smb://readyshare, the IP address and all variations I could think of. It does not list any of my networked devices. How can I get it to work? I also asked a chromebook support group and the makers of the app.

Hello @Willsie,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Did you get any response from the maker of the app?

Looks like this falls under Chromebook support as to whether they will officially allow SMB to work on their OS.

I hope others will post more info about it.
