Hello. My router is Zyxel VMG3925-B10B. I'm trying to access a thumb drive, which I connected to the usb-port of my router, from Windows 10. I can see the thumb drive and its contents on the configuration page when I access it in my internet browser. However I can not access it from Windows 10. I would like to add this thumb drive as a net drive from Windows. How the **** do I make this work?

I have enable File Sharing Services. I have also created a new share and it's directory is as seen in the picture. This problem is driving me insane.

    I finally succeeded to add the network drive. I can now access the drive from any device on my local area network.

    However, now I have another question. Can I make this thumb drive accessible from the internet? Do I have to forward a port?

    Hi Clowningman,

    I think it’s impossible because all devices should be in same network. You can refer to VMG3925 user guide page188.

    Okay so is there no way to go around this? For example, forward a port on my router and then access it through FTP or something?
