Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

Network and sharing centre > advanced sharing centre > network discovery > turn on network discovery > File and printer sharing > Turn on

Both are already turned on.

Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

Not sure on other OS but on Vista I found the following worked for me.

 

make sure your network (BTHub4-*****) is set to private network rather than public on the network and sharing center page.

 

Click start then type \\192.168.1.254 in the start search box this opened up the network page which showed usb1 as a network location.

 

right click this icon and select map network drive.

 

select a drive letter as required then ensure reconnect at logon checked then finish

 

check in start>computer and the usb1 folder should be visible as a folder.

 

A point to note is that the disk should be in the FAT32 format as stated before.

 

Hope this helps

Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

another point probably not picked up on is that make sure you use backslash (\\) rather than forward slash (//). a minor point but it does make a difference when trying to access the drive.

Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

Hi and thanks for your suggestions.

make sure your network (BTHub4-*****) is set to private network rather than public on the network and sharing center page.

IT IS SET TO HOME

Click start then type \\192.168.1.254 in the start search box this opened up the network page which showed usb1 as a network location.

RESULTS IN 'NO ITEMS MATCH YOUR SEARCH'

A point to note is that the disk should be in the FAT32 format as stated before.

IT IS FAT32

Thanks anyway.

Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

I think that everything byzalen has suggested has already been suggested and tried. I still haven't found and answer but if I do I'll let you know.

Re: USB memory stick and Home Hub 3

After trying many things I think the crucial question is this...

All the instructions assume BTHub appears in WindowsExplorer->Network but it doesn't.

If I knew why, this would solve the problem.

Are you still having this issue?

 

Can you open up a comand prompt and type ping 192.168.1.254

 

What are the results?

 

Also, what is the IP address of your computer?
