Core USB port does not work with network drives

Do not buy a core router if you intend to use a USB network drive.  The USB ports are only for interfacing printers.  I sent mine back for credit and went back to my old router after spending hours with their hapless Indian support group who do not know this yet.  For the money, I cannot believe they left out this basic function.  In my mind it makes the device useless.

Re: Core USB port does not work with network drives

Useless would be a bit harsh, useless for you maybe. Besides, they can activate it with a simple firmware upgrade. Doubtful they'd put TWO USB 3.0 ports in, and just keep both for printers. But if you need that NAS service right away, I can understand why you sent it back. I'm still waiting on a "preorder" ha!

I've never even seen a printer that has a USB 3 port on it. It would catch your attention if you saw it, full size USB3 ports aren't very common.

It isn't a port mechanical issue.  All the USB 2 devices plug into a USB 3 socket and work fine.  I have a laptop with both.  Norton told me that the problem that I had with the router not recognizing flash or any kind of drive is it isn't designed for them.

No, I mean that I've not seen a printer that has any use for a USB3 port. The B end of a USB3 cable looks different (see screenshot). It wouldn't fit into a non-USB3 device on the B side. (A side of course fits anywhere)

My point is a device with a USB3 port (such as Norton's router) which only connects to printers doesn't have any need for a USB3 port.
