Patrick Luy: Is there a specific way I need to format the storage device? As an example, I primarily use a Mac as my main computer. So, my storage device, where I keep all my space consuming media, is in a Seagate external drive formatted for the Mac, and not Windows.
I have Windows 8 Dual Booted on my Mac. But I don't use it as much.
Ralph Malek: asus rt-ac68u and plex server
Hi. I was trying for many hours do changes and adjustments but unfortunately I will need your help to start this server on my new router, Please advise what information do you need to help mi out here Thank You
nuero82: Asus, you haven't had DLNA working properly in nearly 12 months across multiple models! Once your ASUS router (mine is AC68U) gets the dreaded Endless Scan that's it! No amount of resetting or rolling back firmware brings DLNA back from the dead. Just like that, a feature that made me buy your product is just gone! A quick google finds that this has been going on for nearly a year
JONNY-STEVE-47: hi can anyone help,having some trouble connecting my new HDD. i have all my videos pictures and music on a Seagate 1tb HDD and when i plug it into my router it shows up and plays all files on any compatible device.

An ivia: how to set permission on new account, there is no option to add read/write permission to new account
Clifford Fernandes: Hi all
I have connected a HDD on USB 3.0 port and able to access from my devices. I would like to know if it is possible to transfer media from my PC to the media server any softwares or hacks to do that or the router itself supports it.
ZakZky007: Outdated info, is there a more current tutorial that would apply to DSL-N66U? Please.
Nitin Kumar: DLNA doesn't work on my RT AC66. It shows "scanning" all the time in the 192.168.1.1. No file is shown in WMP, tried several times but nothing. It is so annoying :(
Aron Dyche: So, thanks for providing no useful information like how/where to add media files, permissions, etc.
Rohan Mehra: So does this router's media server pipe over subtitles, anyone know?
I know technically DLNA is a fixed standard, but it's actually inconsistent, especially with hardware devices. Eg. Tversity software DOES do subtitles well (usually), but twonky (on iomega devices etc...) does NOT. Both are DLNA certified.
Thanks in advance to anyone with a definitive answer.
veganath: Go to your NETWORK you should see the router and a shared folder "sda1"
Daniel Saidi: I am having some problems with that the router does not reindex its content, or that it takes an extremely long time for it to do so. After restarting the router, it only lists some folders. Anyone had this problem?
eizol568: Looking to buy the Asus RT-AC66U Gigabit Router and wanted to know if I hook up a WD via ethernet, will the software support sending videos via ethernet to one pvr and use wifi to another tv?
gustave13: we need to ask this to the creator of DLNA standard. Thus, change your questions into: "Does DLNA Standard support for subtitle or not?" :)
gustave13: see my previous reply, man. Hope it can help~
gustave13: have you set up the share permission or such in the USB application menu??
gustave13: You have to go to USB application menu first in ASUSWRT admin menu. Then you need to set the Directories that you put your audio/video files. So the router will by default to scan in that folder. Click Apply and wait a bit for the scan to complete. Then use the DLNA Client in your smartphone as in video~
Daniel E: What can I Do that my HDD´s swift into standy when unused?
rotate3d: On win7: start>run>"\\nameoftheHDyouset.asuscomm.com"
If this doesn`t work, open Explorer, and type the adress: "\\192.168.1.1"
