File sharing with the WRTSL54GS?

    According to the linksys website the WRTSL54GS is capable of sharing files over the internet through the web browser. It says:

    "You can also set it up so that your storage is accessible from the Internet -- files can be easily downloaded via your web browser. Your files can be available publicly, or create password-protected accounts for authorized users." this was taken from

    However, the user guide that comes with the router doesn't mention how to actually access those files via the Internet. So, how do you view and download the files stored on your drive using your web browser? Is there a certain IP address and port you need to put in? etc. I have already set up a share, but there seems to be no way to get to that share from outside my network.

    Anyone else have one of these and is successfully sharing files over the Internet with them? Linksys customer support was outsourced and unhelpful.

    Thanks All!!

    So nobody has this router? Or nobody knows how to do this either. I guess it is pretty new.

    Thanks for the link and reply. I'm glad someone else spent hours on linksys tech support trying to explain what the box said the thing was supposed to do too. Basically the whole reason for my purchase is for crap now.

    Thank you though.
