Re: Readyshare not working in AP mode

apparently after you put it in AP mode you need to ''restart'' the router before you can acces Readyshare.

 

after i powerd off my router and turned it back on everything worked just fine Smiley Embarassed

 

feel so stupid right now....... such a simple ''fix''

 

thanks for all the help and quick responses tho !! Heart

Hi @Retired_Member

 

Welcome to the community!

 

How do you access ReadySHARE? Is it through wired or wireless computer?

Are you using R7500v1? 
I have the setup right now and I can still access the ReadySHARE through a computer that's connected behind the R7500v1 using \\readyshare\USB_Storage

Re: Readyshare not working in AP mode

Is the ready share setup greyed out when using AP mode?

My 2 cents

 

if this was setup in router mode and then changed to AP mode would the IP change be the problem?
