XR700 External USB disconnect wifi

Hi All,

 

Bit of an issue i've had I connected a USb 3 external HDD to one of the usb ports on the side of the XR700 so I can access it via the network at home and from office. Problem I have is the wifi drops out (turns off completely) when the drive is connected. The moment I disconnect the drive from the port the wifi starts flashing and works again.

 

Any solutions to this problem? I'm currently running fimrware version 1.0.1.20

Model: XR700|Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

Is the drive formatted to the correct file type? https://kb.netgear.com/24059/What-are-the-USB-drive-requirements-for-my-Nighthawk-router

Also is the drive from one of the known compatible drives? Check XR500 and R9000 for the drives that would work with the XR700. https://kb.netgear.com/18985/Will-my-USB-drive-work-with-ReadySHARE
