Hi guys,

I'm struggling a bit with setting up my routers the way I'd like them to be. I have, in my living room, an AC86U as my main router. I have set up an AC66U as a repeater upstairs (same SSID). It works fine. However, I would like to attach an HDD to the upstairs router and to have access to this drive on my network. I prefer to have it be upstairs, since I find the humming sound of the HDD to be just a bit annoying.

I'm just not sure that I have set it up the right way, since I can't see the drive on my network. Only way I can get to it is to type in its IP address in file explorer on Windows.
I also tried an AiMesh setup but I couldn't get that to work either...

I have searched the forum for similar threads but I might not know exactly what to search for, so if you can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Thank you. Sorry, it's the T-AC66U_B1, firmware version is I just enabled SMBv1 and restarted my PC. Seems to have done the trick. Thank you very much!
