USB Ports on ATT Uverse Modem-Router BGW210-700

What is the purpose of the 2 USB ports on the modem?  I connected my USB Printer (it is not the wireless version) but it does not show on the network.  

How can I make my USB Printer a network printer that can use the network wifi to print to it?

About the only thing you can do with the usb ports on the gateway is charge your phone.

As far as using your usb printer as a network printer you can set it up via usb on a computer and then share it so it will be available to all the other devices on your network.
