IPv6 ICMP Filtering and USB Printers

Is there a way to shut off ICMP filtering when IPv6 is enabled? Why is it always ON in the first place?

 

Also, when can we finally expect the USB printer functionality? The router has got two of those nice USB ports that I can't use as intended 😞

I don't think it's an issue if you set IPv6 to open, can you confirm? I believe printing should work, if you're having issues may be worth contacting the Netgear support line as they'll be able to get that resolved fairly quickly.

I've toggled the "IPv6 Filtering" between Secured and Open. However, IPv6 Test still reports that I'm filtered regardless.

Regarding the USB printers; however, I believe that I read somewhere that the print share functionality is still disabled on the latest firmware. Can someone please confirm if they are using the USB printer?
