Model: Deco M9 Plus  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.2.12 Build 20191014 Rel 42025

I see in other posts where the USB port is 'reserved for future use' but that are plans to make it more fuctional such as attaching USB devices directly to my M9Plus. Are there ANY updates available as to when this might happen??  My old Samsung Xpress c430W doesn't 'see' my network so I can't use it as a network printer, I need to direct connect to a single PC.I can't even attach this printer using WPS. 

I really purchased this M9Plus for the USB feature and with it being useless, my opinion of the TP-Link Deco M9Plus is that's I should have stayed with my old brand and just upgrade that one to a Mesh router. 

Thanks for nothing...

Hi,

Currently, there is no plan to add USB sharing on the Deco M9 plus.

Thank you very much.

@SrDarkWarrior 

We keep recording the same kind of request, and then we'll forward it to our product engineer and they can work on it.

If there are any updates, we will upload it to our official website. 

Good day.

Please allow for use of the USP Port.  It is so frustrating to purchase your product and not have full use of it.  Tell those engineers!!!!

@D_G Promises... Promises... Don't expect that USB to ever work. Anyway not in hardware 2.0 since 2.2 has come. They will not have firmware for 2.0. The USB will never function. Yep, the suck.

I agree with the others, I was used to use usb port for Plex, it was one of the reasons to choose higher version of TPlink DECO, and now I'm really dissapointed..

Seems, I'm not the only one looking for external hard drive functionality.
 

Just unboxed and installed the system. Made prior study of buying M9 Plus and made conclusion its the best. However none pf the reviews mentioned about useless USB port.

 

if i would have knewn this, I would have gone with google mesh system. Pity I cant return this anymore
