Since I have no wifi reader, I could only ask a question.
I suppose that reader asks for dynamic IP address. That way any device
might be visible on the net and handle tasks it should. Using usb cable,
it does not need address, since it is just usb client on the address of the
host node. If it would be me, I'd fire up nmap or a tool alike to see if any
device roam on the network. Depending on the router you have, it might
show devices connected to it (or not). To my knowledge, you should use
a protocol to access remote file system. What that protocol is, cannot say.
Some nodes let user ssh to it. Samba is common in some tribes. If you
find IP address of the reader, you could scan open ports and report to
