Multimedia File sharing (File Sharing Not Listed under Applications)

From inside Luci I see attached device and see that it is mounted. But how do i access?

I do not see any File Sharing tools under Applications in the main admin screens, nor can I find any file tools when I search for files to install.


which router and which firmware do you use?

GL.iNet GL-E750
Firmware Version4.0 release50308
Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533 ver 2 rev 0
OpenWrt 22.03.4 r20123-38ccc47687
Kernel Version 5.10.176

Version 4 removed the file sharing feature as written in the changelogs:


  • Your settings can NOT be kept when upgrading to this version from 3.x. Please backup your settings first.
  • This version firmware does NOT include the following features:
    • File Sharing
    • Captive Portal
    • RS485
    • GPS
    • Mesh
  • This admin panel does NOT include the following languages:
    • French
    • Korean
    • Russian
  • Limited by CPU performance and storage space, this version firmware also does NOT include Network Storage fature. (Allow users to install via plug-in after exroot)

You have to exroot before you can install those plugins again:

Thanks for the detailed reply. Sorry to hear there is no longer a simple process for storage access.

Do you know if there are any plans to bring File Sharing back into the Admin Screen in a later firmware release?

Pretty sure this won’t happen because of the limited CPU and memory situation.
