Hardrive access via USB... How do I enable the USB access?

to plug in a USB flash disk for mounting and sharing
through the LAN interfacesvia the Samba protocol
(network neighborhood).
The CGN2 supports the following Windows file systems:
USB devices must not drain more than 500mA
from the USB port. USB devices requiring
more than 500mA should be provided with
their own power source(s).

Re: Hitron CGN2 Media Server

While the unit supports it.. i beleive it still needs to be enabled in the firmware..

In which last i looked.. it wasnt enabled with the rogers firmware 😞

(it is enabled on the CGN3


Personal opinion though..most USB based devices like this.. many different brand routers, etc.. i have seen COUNTLESS issues of them not detecting all sizes, formats, etc very easily... much better to go with a specific network attached external hard drive.)

USB port is disabled on CGN2 at the firmware level.
