i have been going thru TP-link community post for c7 USB issue and I am facing something similar with AX73. C7 model got a beta firmware solving the issue but ax73 havent got any
I was using Ax50 & was able to use my External HDD via USB and enabled FTP and was able to use with both way traffic of Read & write on HDD. Also i was able to use SMB & media share feature on android phone & my denon AVR
But then I Upgraded to AX73 and now when I enabled USB Storage Device option am able to access FTP server but on one way traffic, .i.e. Read only option and am not able use it to write anything on HDD.
Note: this issue is happening not only on HDD(Both external powered or USB powered), but also on other Pen drive’s.
Worst part is i changed the USERNAME and now i cant even read. I changed the username back to old one but then on windows 10 pc ftp file explorer is stuck on "working on it" & on android mobile it keeps on loading.
Please help in getting ftp accessible from AX73. this feature was working perfectly fine on AX50 and i upgraded to ax73 & USB storage feature aint working on ax73
