routerboards which support turning power off to USB

Hello,

i'm wanting to purchase a routerboard (ideally an "integrated solution") such as the RB750UP or RB2011UAS-2HnD-IN - as long as it's got ethernet and a USB for a 3G/4G modem that's all i need. I'm currently using an older alix x86 based solution, but find i'm having to regularly power-cycle the USB device.

In post http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 86#p288786 , janisk mentions that "Newer RouterBOARD have feature to turn off power for USB device."

can anyone confirm if the above two devices have this functionality?

thanks!
