Does Readyshare (usb) work while the router is being used in bridge mode?

I picked up Google wifi and am trying to use my R6700 as router so I can access my wired connections. I have a NAS drive and a USB drive connected. I am able to bring up the NAS while running bridge mode, however, the USB drive is not accessible. I am trying to access it from my mac (smb://readyshare), but it does not connect. Does bridge mode only work for the 4 ports and not the usb port?

Welcome to the community, @nels415

 

Try to access it through its IP address.

Example: \\192.168.1.200\sharename

 

You will need to locate its IP address and the exact share name. 

Share name can be located inside the admin page of the router.
