    Hey all

    I have a usb HDD plugged into my router

    \\192.168.2.1\usb

    Is there anyway I get get to this from android?

    I got the app "ES File Explorer" but I can't seem to find it with the options on the app (most ask for a username and password etc...) my router usb drive has none

    Cheers

    You could try "Anonym" with ES's login ... but I'm afraid the problem might be that the drive is connected via USB to the router.

    ES file explorer is asking for the username and password for an account on the computer the drive is connected to.

    I use ES file explorer all the time to stream movies to my phone from my computer. :)
