Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.12 Build20191014 Rel 42025

I just bought M9 Plus from costco and setup, wifi works fine.

However after my connected my USB Flash Drive (1 TB) to the USB port I dont see anyway of accessing the content nor the Deco TPLink Android app has any function how to control access to this USB Drive, as well as how to access this through DLNA.

 

Does M9 Plus support DLNA - for other devices (Smart TVs, MusicApps) to connect to this drive through DLNA ?

@SamWashDC from what I can tell not yet, but it is reserved for such a feature in the future. For now you can just charge devices with it. 

 

Hopefully soon though :D

@SamWashDC  Thank You, folks.

I gave up using the USB ports to attach SSD/HDD drives and use DLNA - not just with TPLink, tried NetGear too - always had issues with DLNA support.

I learnt from experience that depending on Router USB ports for DLNA or HDD/SSD Share will not be viable long time since almost all brands of Mesh Routers do not come with USB ports.
Hence I choose Synology NAS which has in-built HDDs as well as USB ports to add external HDD/SSD - this has DLNA as well as all other File Share Options - NFS/SMB etc, and additional apps to sync from Mobile devices to NAS.

 

Life has become much easier with this... Late learning but worth it :-)

Hello, the Deco M9 plus has an extra USB 2.0 port. While there is no software functions added for the USB 2.0 port yet. It's reserved for adding file sharing features in future firmware updates.

 

However, the USB 2.0 can charge some mobile devices such as phones.

 

May it help and have a nice day.

Hi, as far as I know, no, there has been no further plan about network storage yet and it is still only used as a USB charging port.
