the problem seems to be solved, but not for me...  I plugged a USB storage
pendrive into my ADSL internet router but don't know how to access it.  I
tried putting in /etc/fstab something like:

//192.168.1.1/USB_storage /mnt/public cifs guest 0 0

Is this the correct share to mount? Try "smbclient -L 192.168.1.1" to see
what shares are available.

$ smbclient -L 192.168.0.1
WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated
Enter rodolfo's password:
Connection to 192.168.0.1 failed (Error NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT)

If I put 192.168.1.2, instead, I get something more:

$ smbclient -L 192.168.1.2
WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated
Enter rodolfo's password:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.12]
Server requested LANMAN password (share-level security) but 'client lanman auth = no' or 'client ntlmv2 auth = yes'
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Try running smbmount directly and see if it gives more information:

 # mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/USB_Storage /mnt/public --verbose -o guest


# mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/USB_Storage /mnt/public --verbose -o guest
mount.cifs kernel mount options:
ip=192.168.1.1,unc=\\192.168.1.1\USB_Storage,user=,pass=********
mount error(115): Operation now in progress
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

And also:

# mount -t cifs //192.168.1.2/USB_Storage /mnt/public --verbose -o guest
mount.cifs kernel mount options: ip=192.168.1.2,unc=\\192.168.1.2\USB_Storage,user=,pass=********
Retrying with upper case share name
mount.cifs kernel mount options: ip=192.168.1.2,unc=\\192.168.1.2\USB_STORAGE,user=,pass=********
mount error(6): No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

Besides, pointing the web browser at 192.168.1.1, the usb storage is seen in
the Admin menu.  Does all this suggest us anything useful...?

Yes, this confirms that 192.168.1.1 is the address of your router. An IP
address typically identifies a single device. If you are looking to talk
to the USB device attached to the router, there's no point talking to
192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.2 - that's like saying "I couldn't find my
laptop, but I walked into my neighbour's house and they had a laptop so
it must be the right one"
