Re: New Modem Out

said by Darknessfall:

It's the SBG6782
But, it also doesn't even have an USB port .

I have no use for a USB port on a modem. Ethernet is much better for wired connectivity.

I meant USB for printers/hard drives since it's a gateway unless you mean printers/hard drives that have Ethernet ports.

Most gateways (or even routers) that support USB do so for external drives (even thumb drives), but not printers. My NETGEAR WNDR3700v4 has a USB port, and I can connect a USB thumb drive (or even a MyBook) to it, but not a far older USB printer (HP DeskJet 940C). Besides, it's often faster, believe it or not, to connect the shared device to another system, especially if said system has a faster USB port than the gateway or router - USB ports on gateways and routers top at USB 2.0, and most don't even support that. (Sad, but unfortunately true.)
