External Hard Drive Connection to Orbi Mesh Router

Really!!??!!

 

I just paid $550 to get a new Orbi Mesh Router (because after I flash updated my R7000 Nighthawk router it became unstable)

and now I find that the USB connectors ONLY work for ReadyShare printers??

 

Searching the web, this has been a user issue for over 3 years and apparently you have done NOTHING on this.

 

Does NetGear even care about its users needs?

 

I have half a mind to return this router - which seems great in all other aspects - to get something that actually solves a real-world

problem.

Send it back.  You will continue to be annoyed forever if you keep it.
