I have a Zyxel C3000Z. What is the USB port for?

I was told by Centurylink tech the USB port was only for an external WIFI antenna. Does anyone know of such an animal that plugs into this manual-less product?

    Hi feral

    I found C3000Z user manual on internet.
    Not sure if there was any misunderstanding?
    It says:

    : You can connect a USB memory stick or a USB hard drive for
    file sharing. The Device automatically detects the USB device.
    Alternatively, use a USB cable
    (not provided) to connect a USB
    printer to this port
  • I noticed in the latest CenturyLink Firmware CZD005- that the USB port is listed under the Ethernet tab - as in the old DSL modems used to connect via USB.  Is it a USB A-A cable that is used or a special crossover?

    Does this device come with a default firmware Zyxel provides or only CenturyLink? If so can you post a link to download it (and the manual if possible)?

    Hello @filter4ever

    I have found a user guide at https://fccid.io/I88C3000Z/User-Manual/User-Manual-pdf-3416832

    It says that the USB port is only for file sharing, or connecting a USB printer.

    Kind regards, Tony
