Are there any Spec/ Info for the USB on the TG582n router

No doubt many of you know I now have a USB TG582n router
I am currently NOT using the USB due to the testing I am doing for the issue(s) via my other thread
Is there any official / unofficial documentation for the USB side of the TG582n
1. Can it see more than 1 partition on a external HDD
2. What formats does it support (work best with) NTFS / Fat / Fat32 etc
3. What are the Read / Write speeds
4. Is it only accessible via FTP:IP Address
5. Does it support DragnDrop / CopynPaste etc
6. Does File Sharing have to be turned on on any devices IE:Windows
7. Are there any known Printers that are to be avoided (which does not work with the TG582n)
8. Can I use a USB Hub so when Printer is not in use the External HDD will still be operational
9. Does it support a USB camera for surveillance
If there is anything else I have not asked / overlooked, I will be grateful to see what the TG582n is capable of

Manual here
Page 45 answers most of your questions about the file sharing aspects
The manual doesn't refer to the print server but there's some guidance here

Cheers pwatson Smiley
They have answered a lot more that I originally asked Grin
I guess my next set of questions are related to actual usage Wink (That the manuals fail to tell us)
1. How secure is the FTP option
2. If I allow remote access (for any valid reason) could I potentially see the files stored on the attached USB devices
3. Can I from a client home (for example) send a file print (similar to a fax)
4. What printers works best with both the 8.44.J & 10.2.2.B Firmwares
5. Using a USB hub can I use a printer & USB HDD @ the same time or would have to wait until the others process has finished 1st
6. Is anyone successfully using a WebCam on the TG582n USB & if so was it easy to set up & can it be accessed via FTP or other means
7. What devices are you using via a hub
8. What HUB are you using Is it a Powered HUB or not
