    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    Looks like that was the issue, the USB device has been available since I turned off the hibernation option. Thanks

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    The hibernate was indeed allowed. I changed it to not allow hibernation and it appeared green up in the icon area top right so that is good. I had 2 yellow blinking exclamation alerts for FTP and Samba allowing unauthorized log-in access. I didn't notice if those were already there before I...

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    I have not tried either of those options. I am new to this so please excuse the lack of knowledge. This is my first router any more advanced than just a basic AC750 or equivalent $40 to $60 to get on the internet.

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    Hmmm, didn't think of the external power issue for the HDD but that doesn't account for the SSD, thumb drives, or TF cards... Anyway as I said, the drive I would ultimately like to use is the 256gb SSD and that's the only one I've tried the past few times after clearing the cache and a hard...

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    So I guess this got side tracked. Back to my original issue, any ideas for a solution? I've tried a few more times with just one USB drive. It's the SSD that I recently replaced from my laptop, it's a WD 256gb m.2 NVMe PCIe in an external enclosure, the drive I want to use all the time but I do...

    Review New In the Charts: ASUS RT-AX58U

    Yeah, I've come to the conclusion that most of us are on our own anyway so I finally gathered up the courage to open up a laptop myself. I bought this newest Dell about a year and a half ago and when I got it set up for what I needed it to do for me as far as work goes, I decided to open up the...

    Review New In the Charts: ASUS RT-AX58U

    I'm keeping my AX58U regardless as I have had too many issues with Netgear routers over the years. I avoid them, Lynksys, and TP Link, not to be confused with D-Link, at all cost. I don't do anything intensive anyway and it has all the features I want for a simple home wifi/network setup and...

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    That was/is my intention. The only reason I tried a bunch was to see if any of them would stay connected. The ones that do will for a certain amount of time, which I haven't pinned down yet, eventually stop being recognized by the router for some reason. It could be anywhere from a few hours to...

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    I believe so, it was awhile ago but I followed the guide from where I downloaded it and it was an official version. Right now it's 386.1.

    AX58U/AX3000 USB issues

    Greetings, I have the AX58U/AX3000 wifi router and so far I'm very happy with it. I've had it for a few months and put the Merlin firmware on it shortly after buying it and have not had any issues until now. I can't get it to consistently use a USB drive. I have several, thumb drives, TF card...
