I was reading on Cisco/Linksys regarding the E3000 and E4200 and their specs say these two routers provide 1000mA to the USB, and they have a list of tested external hard drives and enclosures. I have a inland 2.5" SATA to USB 3.0 enclosure with an old 120gb hard drive that I am using to back up pictures and videos of my daughter. I wanted to get a new router so I could have the data shared between our two laptops, instead of having data on each laptop and then having to back them up separately. I was looking into the RT-N16, as it has all the features I was looking for, but I do not know about the USB power. Does anyone know how much current it can supply?
