It will be device and app dependant. The usb stick will appear on the network as \\192.168.1.254\usb1 as it does for your laptop, you need to point whatever app you are using to that location.

The I would use a proper NAS, like the Zyxel NAS326, its going to be much faster, and you can access it from the Internet as well, if you wish.

Otherwise use something like Google Drive.
