New Rogers customer with the new CODA-4582.
I have 1TB NTFS formatted hard drive attached to the modem. I can see the drive fine and map it to my PC on the same network and media stream via SMB to a Kodi box on a TV; however, the drive is not visible to either my PS3 or PS4 on the same network. The drive was visible when attached to an ASUS RT-AC56U.
The PS4 does not support SMB.
Am I correct in assuming that this CODA router does not support DLNA media streaming?
How exactly did you manage to get the USB port to work at all? I was under the impression that it was disabled under the current firmware and there are no visible configuration pages on my modem for it. I tried using one of the USB keys that I was using in the CNG3ACSMR and it doesn't show up on my 188.8.131.52 CODA-4582 at all.
I still haven't received the 184.108.40.206 firmware yet. Is it enabled in there?
@zardoz99, log into the modem and look for the ADMIN .... USB Storage tab. I don't know if its in V220.127.116.11. It is included in V18.104.22.168.
I'm assuming that the modem will auto-detect the USB disk after the Shared Status has been enabled. Don't know if the Shared Status has to be enabled before or after the USB disk is attached. After the disk has been detected, you would probably have to map the drive in order to have any access to it.
As for DLNA, I don't know if its enabled as there is no status indication in the user interface, or enable/disable function for it.
I'm not sure of my firmware version # (I'll check when I have a chance). In the router config panel under one of the tabs is a USB tab and it shows whether or not a USB drive is connected. There are no other settings that I could find regarding the drive. I called tech support but they didn't know.
I solved my problem another way by using a "spare " ASUS RT-AC56U router configured as an access point on the main floor of our home. I used the USB drive option on it for my media drive and since I have the router "wired" it gave a neeed extension to the wifi range.
Just using the Rogers wifi I could only connect to the 2.4G network with a download speed around 16Mbps. Now sitting in the same spot connected to the 5G from the access point with 167-200 Mbps while testing my tablet at the same time in the 2.4G. Without the access point my tablet was single digits Mbps now it's 29-38Mbps.
Oh, and the drive works fine for streaming media to the PS3 & PS4 and a TV. Sort of fixed two problems.
Definitely not there in my modem. It must have just been introduced back in to .29.
I'll just have to wait for @RogersDave to push the firmware again.
I just repushed the firmware to your modem.
Regarding USB, Hitron and Intel are still looking for a solution. What they have discovered however is that if the device is USB 2.0, it works correctly. If the device is USB 3.0 capable, it will not work.
Thanks for the very rapid update to .29 :-)
Still no USB tab however... As a Factory reset would put it back to .27, I guess I'm stuck at this point.
I guess there is some other magic that has to happen as well. I do however now see the MoCA tab has appeared, confirming the firmware level.
I used a USB 2.0 drive. It was able to access it from my PC and phone/tablet through the network (wired & wireless) but I could not "see" the drive with my PS3, PS4 or Smart TV (DLNA). Since those devices were what I wanted the drive for I had to try a different route.
That tab should be there. I'd run a reboot, or restart the modem by pulling the power off of it and plugging it back in.
Nope, did a complete power cycle. No tab. The MoCA tabs are there now, but the USB one is AWOL.
In the Basic / Gateway function menu, is there a button "USB"? I honestly can't remember if this button is visible in the customer interface or not and don't have access to a modem to test it right now.
In any case, it was disabled on your modem so I enabled it. This made the tab Admin / USB Storage appear.
Let me know if this works now for you.
