A USB 3.0 port is perfect for external storage drives which can be accessed across your network via FTP and a built-in media server. Additionally you are able to attach a USB 3G or 4G dongle and share its internet connection, keeping you connected to the internet during any network outages

The picture is of a RT-AC87U and google shopping links to this page from a search for that device. Which is incorrect on this page - the device name and description, or the picture?

Asked by: mike
Thank you for pointing this out to us , the picture and description are incorrect, the picture an description is of the ASUS RT-AC87U router and not the N900 DSL-N66U. We will update the information. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
