Just had my Plusnet broadband enabled a few days ago and I am using the Technicolor TG582n router. It is showing up as a media renderer on my network and the web site shows a USB port on it, however there is no port on this Plusnet version. Is it still there behind the plastic casing ? would be great if I could connect my external HD to it.
The TG582n that was supplied to me a few weeks ago for FTTC has a USB port on the left side (as you look at the front). Not checked whether it works for serving media, as I use it as a paperweight rather than as a router - I find it fulfils that function much more effectively

Yeah I have checked all sides of the router and definitely no USB port. There are just ventilation holes where it should be on the left side. I am tempted to open it up to see if there is still a port inside but I doubt that. Currently use my PC to stream to my PS3 so would have been nice to have the USB port and plug in my external hard drive. Guess I will have to buy a decent router for that.
