R6900 nighthawk USB connection

Can’t connect Seagate Backup Hub Plus Hard Drive 6TB from its USB 3.0 port or 2.0 port. I have a Lacie hard driver currently connected to NetGear without any issues? Is there any tricks I should know?

   I assume that that means that you can connect it, but that it doesn't
work when you do.  I know nothing, but a Google search for:

      site:netgear.com Seagate Backup Hub Plus

finds many things, including:

Thanks for the tip. I had checked the community post already before post my question. Unfortunately someone said the Seagate backup hub will not work with NetGear R6900. I can’t see the device in Genie under Attached Devices.

Routers don't play ball with complicated USB devices that require fancy drivers to get them to work.
