    Default LG Wireless Storage

    Anyone else get this working? I can't connect at all. Even when I let Windows diagnose it all I get is it is detected but the device is refusing the connection.

    I have all the latest driver for LG devices but in this case drivers aren't really used. This is more like login into a website the device is actually refusing the FTP connection.

    It doesn't work for me either. Try this free app for wireless file sharing and more....

    Works great for me, but not in the Chrome or Firefox browsers. I can type either the IP address shown in the tab's notifications, or \\G_Pad in the windows file Explorer address bar or in IE address bar and the username and password dialog pops up immediately.

    I tried through Windows file Explorer and all I get is Error code 0x80004005. When you look up this error it has something to do with host device connection refusal.

    OK. I usually use Chrome and it does not work. I just tried IE and it worked as advertised.

    It must be an issue with my Windows because even in IE It tells me to check the spelling.

    Maybe it's a firewall issue somewhere. I use the MS firewall that comes with Win 8.1 on all my Windows machines. The G Pad has no firewall software. It connected instantly (once I had entered credentials).

    I also mapped the network location to a drive letter once the connection was made in IE and the G Pad was visible in Windows Explorer....

    Whats weird is I recently added a NAS to one of my router's USB ports and nothing has any trouble accessing that but so maybe it is actually my new router because I have not taken the time to really get to know it yet. I just been enjoying the wonderful speed it has brought.

    I had a huge problem with this for a while

    the solution I found was to use internet explorer, (not chrome) and USE ALL CAPS like this \\VK810_4G (use the specific address for whatever model you have)

    that finally got it working for me


    good luck
