Cisco DPC3848V USB Port

Hey Friends,

 

Is the Cisco DPC3848V USB Port usable and if so how do I access a printer or external hard drive attached to it?

 

We have multiple subnets and it would be convenient to plug a printer or usb hard drive into the router so family members can share the printer, or alternatively connect a large external hard drive for periodic backups of home videos & pictures.

 

I read all the docs I could find, and tried plugging various printers/ usb sticks and hard drives but could not access them using any method I could think of. Samba / netbois /etc. (we all use different operating systems, linux/windows/android/ios).

 

then I read that some features of the router have been disabled by Shaw. does anyone know what the usb ports intended use is, and if a future firmware update will enable such possible features?

 

thanks!
