Where can I download readyshare.exe?

hThis may be part of ReadySHARE Access, but it is not available for download or I cannot find it.
ttp://www.netgear.com/readyshare is suggested, but the file is not available there.  This is necessary to set up a USB hard drive.

Hello @Dallaspilot,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

What model number and version of the Netgear device that you have?

That file is not necessarily needed to get the USB working. Once you plug in the USB to the router, you should be able to map the drive through "\\readyshare_USB name".

You may want to verify the exact syntax by accessing the admin page of your router and go to ReadyShare then look for Share Name. See example below.

I'm using the Netgear Nighthawk 1900ac router.  Your solution worked; thank you.
