Re: Portable storage not accessible over wi-fi

There are two versions of the GEN 2 both by default use SMB1.0 which is disabled on Windows 10 PC. Windows 10 use SMB2.0 and above. On the Arcadyan modem (LH1000) SMB1.0 can be enabled by going to Media > Content Sharing > SMBA. On the Technicolor modem SMB1.0 has to be enabled on PC.


See section 27 of document linked in these posts for how to configure modem and PC.
