19.07.1 ASUS N13U B1, USB not working

Hello

I just installed Openwrt 19.07.1 and noticed that the USB port is not working at all. It was fully working in 18.06.1 before. All the necessary drivers are installed but it just won't detect any device that is plugged in.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Furthermore i found this thread [How-To] disable unused USB ports to reduce router power consumption

root@OpenSST:~# hub-ctrl -v
Hub #0 at 001:001
INFO: ganged switching.
WARN: Port indicators are NOT supported.
Hub Port Status:
Port 1: 0000.0000

0000.0000

The output should be this if it was on.
0000.0100

According to the thread above, my router's USB port is turned off, which explains why nothing is being detected even though the drivers are installed.

So any help would be appreciated.

Please send output of dmesg command for more details
if you found block device (like sda1 or sdb1) under /dev/ folder try to mount it
format your usb storage as fat32 filesystem then install kmod-fs-vfat after that create mount point folder and mount usb

check for usb drive :

root@MikRB-WRT2011:~# dmesg 

you should find block device name (sda or ...)

install kmod-fs-vfat :

root@MikRB-WRT2011:~# opkg update
root@MikRB-WRT2011:~# opkg install kmod-fs-vfat

create mount point folder :

root@MikRB-WRT2011:~# mkdir /root/usb/

mount usb drive :

root@MikRB-WRT2011:~# mount /dev/sda1 /root/usb/

note that sda1 could be something else like : sda2 or ... check /dev/ directory

also try install kmod-usb-ohci
and install kmod-usb-ledtrig-usbport if your router have usb led

read this for more info
https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/storage/usb-installing

Thanks for your reply.
Thing is, there's nothing shows up in the logs, no matter whichever usb device i plug into it, there is simply no activity in there regarding USB.There's power in the usb port coz i can charge my mobile but that's about it. I did try to install kmod-usb-ohci but nothing changed.

This was merged to Openwrt between 18.06.1 and 18.06.3

Is there any chance that it will be fixed finally?

With this patches in mainline to make USB woriking, we should revert 0032-USB-dwc2-add-device_reset.patch as described in [0] and tested at [1]
