    Have just had a stab at using my Netgear DGND3700's USB drive sharing - I had a spare external HDD + I want to be able to access files on it both over the 'net and from local network. Both work fine, very easy to set up, however I am unable to edit settings for the shared folder, which means I am unable to password protect it.

    I don't need a password for local sharing but obviously it isn't ideal to have files freely available on the Internet, have looked into troubleshooting but can't find any similar stories with Netgears.

    I click "edit" or "create network folder" and it loads for a second or two but just stays on the same page. There is only one option to select but I have tried clicking the radio button first anyway, then clicking edit, same result.

    Is there something blindingly obvious I haven't done/have done wrong?

    Anyone with a similar router able to get it up and running properly?
