I’ve recently tried setting up Samba sharing on my Asus RT-N18U Wireless Router with latest available official ASUSWRT software (184.108.40.206.378_9545-ge20f0c3). In order to achieve this, I followed what seemed a logical menu path:
USB Application -> Media Services -> “Network Place (Samba) Share / Cloud Disk”
No big deal so far, and then no issues either in creating and assigning permissions to users:
Unfortunately, what seemed (and should have been) a simple operation didn’t bring expected results.
