D-Link SharePort not for Linux

leave a comment »

Got a D-Link DIR-655 router; it has a USB port on the back, that can be used in 3 modes:

  • Network USB: D-Link SharePort technology to share a hard disk or printer on your network
  • 3G USB Adapter: share your 3G connectivity on your local network
  • WCN Configuration: Windows Connect Now technology to transfer network settings on a USB flash disk

D-Link provides a Windows-only utility to use SharePort, while the actual manufacturer (Silex) also provides a MacOS utility. However (as usual) nothing for Linux…
