    I have an ASUS RT-AC68U router. I connected 2 HDDs to the USB and mapped them

    The problem is, even though I did check save password, upon every restart I get a notification that the drives could not be connected until I double click on any of the 2 mapped drives, enter my password (username would already be there) then once I connect toe any of the drives the others also automatically are connected.

    This happened to me in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

    Do note that my network connections, everytime I double click on my Router's icon (which is the network infrastructure I believe) I must re-enter the password again

    any help please?

    Running the latest firmware: 3.0.0.4.376_1663

    It is normal that on reboot the credentials must be filled in again because of safety ! there wil be an answer soon but it is not realy recommended to disable safety functions that are build in the system :eek:

    I understand that's great for a work network but Im the only user at home I wanna access it without a password but connecting to the network infrastructure RT-AC68U always prompts me for the password.

    I checked the credentials in Control Panel and my password is actually saved there. That's why I'm confused why it's asking for it upon every reboot

    I wonder if you could make some sort of net connect script like some guy was working on a while back.
    Perhaps a runas command?
    Hmm wonder if it uses that username:password@192.168.0.1 protocol or whatever...

    Sorry that's all guesswork... have you tried a google search about automatically connecting usb hard drives with passworded routers?

    Actually I did search on Google before posting here

    I did exactly what you said which is created a batch file and put it on my startup folder but the networked drives don't seem to connect at startup:

    Code:
    net use (P): \\(AC68U)\(Data) /user=(Jay) password=(password)
    
    net use (B): \\(AC68U)\Backup) /user=(Jay) password=(password)
