How to connect USB NAS to D-Link DIR 655

I have a router D-Link model DIR 655 that has a USB port supposedly used to connect a printer or hard disk. Well, I bought a Western Digital My Book and connected it to the router through the USB port, but nothing happens. This is the first time I have tried to use a NAS, so I don't really know how to use it. I thought the driver would appear on Windows Explorer as a share drive.
I'm using Windows Vista Business. Sharing services are active and it is possible to see all share directories on the network.
Thanks for any help.

If you update your router firmware to the most current you can use the usb port to connect to an external hard drive or flash drive but you have to install drivers on the computer you want to access it with also i believe only one person can access it at a time

I finally realized by myself what was happening. It was all my mistake. I thought that the USB port was for connecting a hard disk. As it happens, it is true that it can read from a hard disk or flash drive, but only to search for a file associated with the protocol WCN (Windows Connect Now) which makes possible to configure the router automatically.

Hi,

You cannot set the printer up directly on the router as the router needs to have a driver to understand how to use the printer. If you have a wireless printer, you need to enter a wireless key on the printer, you'll have to do that from the printer interface (you didn't list your printer model so i'm not sure how exactly you do that). On my wireless printer there is a nice network setup menu on the touch screen display.

Then you have to install the full drivers for the printer and tell it the printer is connected wirelessly and it looks for it and finds its IP address and allows you to connect to it.

If you do not have a wireless printer, and need to print wirelessly, you will need to buy a print server.

This seem to me to be
the USB device that is being used is the issue.
1. firmware update may be required for the Router.
2.The error is related to the USB device.
3. Check the faqs for this router for further reference.
4. data progress may be halted due to the connection procedure used.

The DIR-628 does support a USB printer. You need to download the appropriate shareport version from dlink http://www.dlink.ca/products/?pid=DIR-628&tab=3.firmware

If the printer drivers are already installed on your PC you should be ready to go.

Setup DIR-655 w/ Westell 6100 USB DSL Modem


First check if your computer can get on the modem with an Ethernet ( This is to find out if your router will work with your modem) If you cannot get on give your ISP a call to have them configure the modem for Ethernet connection. If you do get on then connect the router to the modem and your computer to the router. You can run the CD for the router or do the connection manually.
