I have my own cloud storage server usingownCloud for many years now, and love it. It’s like DropBox, only better.

However, even with that, it’s still nice to have a shared storage for my home network. So today I bought a Seatate Ultra Slim USB 3 disk from Costco, with 2TB capacity. It is attached to my router, ASUS RT-AC68U. Here are the steps for:

  • Router set up;
  • Mount a drive on Windows;
  • Mount a drive on Linux;

Router:
1. Go to 192.168.1.1 through your browser;
2. USB Application (left side);
3. Media Services and Servers;
4. Network Place (Samba) Share / Cloud Disk;
5. Enable Share. I also enabled Allow guest login. Leave everything and click “Apply”.

Windows:
Map a drive to \\192.168.1.1\Seagate_Backup_Plus_Drive\Seagate

Linux:
sudo apt install cifs-utils
sudo mkdir /media/routerUSB
Edit /etc/fstab, adding this line:
//192.168.1.1/Seagate_Backup_Plus_Drive/Seagate /media/routerUSB cifs guest 0 0
Run sudo mount -a

Enjoy!
