Samba support on the RT-AX86U seems interesting. I happen to be using Merlin's firmware.

How many amps per port does the RT-AX86U safely support when using one USB port? How about when using two?

I forgot what the stock firmware had, but Merlin's firmware has the option to set "Maximum number of concurrent connections". It only allows one digit. Why is the default 5? Are there problems setting it to 9? Why would someone want it lower than 5?


Part of the Furniture
The specs on the Asus site don't mention that it has any additional power delivery features so I would assume it's just the normal USB spec of 900mA @ 5v per port.
