According to Netgear Tech Support, the R6250 USB 3.0 connection only works with a small list of compatible hard drives, which is not mentioned on the box or in the manual. After spending hours on the phone with Netgear Tech Support (which is foreign based and difficult to understand) I was told I should go buy one of their higher end routers in order to get the connectivity I needed. That is completely unacceptable, especially considering I have no way of knowing if the "higher end" models will work as advertised. If you are looking for 3.0 USB connectivity for your hard drive, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
On the USB 3.0 issue, there isn't one. I've plugged in 2 different USB sticks, one 2.0 and one 3.0 and both worked straight away.
