WNR3500L (stock) & ReadyShare password issue

Hello all,

I recently purchased a WNR3500L and am very happy with it thus far.
I have *not* changed from the stock Netgear firmware (aside from upgrading to latest revision).
Thus far, all the features of the router work as expected, with the exception of ReadyShare.

Specifically, I have attached a Seagate 2TB external drive to the router (which recognizes the device per the webGUI).
The challange is the permissions applied to the device for sharing over a network.
I have the disk share presented wide open "All - no password" for read & write.
When I attempt to access the share (via direct network reference or via HTTP) I get prompted for a username and password.
I have attempted the credentials I use for the router admin itself, however this is not accepted.
I have also switched the permissions to use the "admin" user, but this is not accepted either.

Please consider and advise on what steps may be taken to resolve this matter?

Re: WNR3500L (stock) & ReadyShare password issue

I have the same issue! I cant access my attached USB hard drive, it always asks for username and password - but I have "All - no password" for read and write access, too. When I change to admin, Im trying with username admin and with password (my router password). No luck. Please help! :confused:
