Hi,

I recently relocated in Gurgaon from one locality to another and here Airtel have optical fiber connection so they upgraded my router to Nokia G-140WC which have 2 USB ports. However when i connect my external hard drive or pen-drive, it doesn't work. It doesn't show in the router admin where it has a section for FTP server.

Can someone please help me here?

Thanks!

have you tried restarting the modem after you have connected the USB device?

I also have similar problem. I wanted to use USB ports for sharing pen drive and printer. Can not do it as
the port seems to be not working. Tried several methods but no luck. If any one can help, it will be
a big favor.

I did not get any response to the posts about the usb ports not working in Nokia ONT. Some users have
indicated that they wanted to connect usb devices but they are also facing similar problem. Nokia
customer support is non existent. Airtel refuses to help. I have to use one extra router just for this
purpose. Anybody on this forum can offer a solution ??

I think you should check the format of your pendrive. If it's NTFS then change it to FAT32 and try again. I don't know whether this will work for you or not.
