How to access USB drive connects to c7000v2 on Bridge mode

Hello:

I put c7000v2 to Bridge mode, connect EERO Pro to it. Network is up and running, all devices are able to connect to internet; except...

Have a Seagate USB drive connectes to c7000v2. From Windows laptop, can nolonger use Map Network Drive to connect to it.

When c7000v2 was on Router mode, i can log into via WEB to manage USB Storage.

Does c70000v2 lose USB support and login features on Bridge mode?

 

Thanks.

WI

   It's not a question of "WiFi features"; it's a question of _all_ the
router capabilities, which includes the file-sharing capability.

   For management purposes, you should be able to access it at a special
IP address: "192.168.100.1".

 

   I believe that the address suggested in the C7000v2 User Manual under
"Connect Your Modem Router to a Router After Installation and
Activation" is wrong:


      Note: When your modem router is in bridge mode, use
            http://192.168.0.1 to log in to your modem router.


(Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Connect Your Modem
Router to a Router After Installation and Activation".)

 

> [...] Nor the c7000v2 able to share USB drive out?

 

   No file sharing, no printer sharing, no anything which requires any
router capability.

 


> [...] connect EERO Pro to it. [...]

 

   Perhaps that device can do what you want.

 


   Why are you trying to use both the C7000v2 and the "EERO Pro"?  If
the router features of the C7000v2 were satisfactory, and the "EERO Pro"
was intended to extend the wireless-network coverage of the C7000v2,
then you might be happier if you return the C7000v2 to full-function
router mode, and employ the "EERO Pro" as a wireless access point.

Googled around, one article talks about when modem/route combo device is on Bridge mode, it loses WiFi features. If it is the fact, does that mean i can not log into c7000v2? Nor the c7000v2 able to share USB drive out?
