NAS on the Orbi

I purchased the RBR50 tri-band mesh router for our home from Costco. I noticed that there are USB ports on the back of the access points.  Can you connect a drive for a network attached storage?  I don't see any documentation on this at all.  If not, what is the purpose of the USB ports?

Not at this time. NG only seems to support USB printers connected to the USB port.

Any benefit to USB attached printer v.s. wireless connections to the printer?  Thanks for the info.

USB would not take up any wifi bandwidth. If your not doing alot of printing you could use USB. Wireless you could allow wifi devices to connect directly to the printer.
