Orbi USB port does not work

It's been almost a year since I bought the Orbi WIFI/rounter with a satilite.  The USB connection feature still does not work and have have not seen a firmware update for this feature.  Below I have included a copy of the message from Netgear that fix would be coming.  Has an update for this firmware issue been published?

Hello, Kenneth! 

For now, we still do not have a firmware for this. 

Our engineering department will soon release a firmware for this, Kenneth. We just don't have an ETA for it. 

My sincerest apology for the inconvenience.

Re: Orbi USB port does not work

It nice that you have the newer replacement for the Orbi RBR50, but that doesn't help.  I'm not looking to buy more equipment.  I just want the one I purchased to work as advertised.  They said they were working on a firmware update to fix the problem with the USB ports, but still nothing a year later.  What does it say about a company that ships a product for sale knowing that they have defectived?

Re: Orbi USB port does not work

The tag line is my setup. The CBK40 doesn't have a USB port. I tagged the forum moderators to your post so they can review and comment. 

 

Good Luck.
