3 questions:

Is it possible to connect a USB Drive to my Hub 4 router?

Does this router support file sharing?

If yes does it offer SMB1?

I am trying to connect this drive to my Sonos (S1) system.

Thank you

No USB on any VM hub, they are cheap and cheerless equipment. If you want any of this type of facility you need to invest in your own router.

There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't and F people out of 10 who do not understand hexadecimal c1a2a285948293859940d9a49385a2

So, What is the solution if we don't want to change the router?

any kind of device to connect to the network and accept hard disk or flash as network storage?

There are certainly many NAS drives that connect to your own LAN, I use Synology ones and they have proved very reliable.

+1 for a NAS.  I've been using QNAP for many years without issues.
