Title: USB Hub?
Post by: twistedmjc on January 19, 2019, 07:24:50 AM
I was wondering if its possible to connect a powered USB Hub to the USB 3.0 port on this router in order to connect 2+ External HDs? I'm looking to connect 2 USB laptop hard drives in External Enclosures to it to use with the Media Server function.

Possible that might work. I don't think any one has tried that before though...

I do not believe the router will recognize multiple drives in the same port.

I didn't think so either. However not many posted experiences for this kind of configuration. I presume most routers only support the use of 1 drive if it only has 1 port.  ::)
