Can't get usb D-Link DWA 127 to work on RPI4 B


I have installed OpenWrt on my raspberry 4 B. (which already has a wifi network card inside)
I am having troubles to get my usb Wifi D-Link DWA 127 recognized (in order to get another wlan)
I have installed these packages:

opkg install kmod-rt2800-lib kmod-rt2800-usb kmod-rt2x00-lib kmod-rt2x00-usb kmod-usb-core kmod-usb-uhci kmod-usb-ohci kmod-usb2 usbutils openvpn-openssl luci-app-openvpn nano

Should be fine since I found the device in : :
USB: 2001:3C1B D-Link Corp. DWA-127 Wireless N 150 High-Gain Adapter(rev.A1) [Ralink RT3070]

root@OpenWrt:~# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux 5.4.154 xhci-hcd xHCI Host Controller
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 2001:3d04 MediaTek 802.11 n WLAN
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2109:3431  USB2.0 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux 5.4.154 xhci-hcd xHCI Host Controller

The usb wifi device seems to be found but I can't get wlan1 detected. (wlan0 is the internal wificard of the raspberry). So it is not considered as a wifi device..

root@OpenWrt:~# ifconfig wlan1 up
ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device

Do you have any idea of what is going wrong ?

Thank you in advance,

Chances are that the vendor may have silently switched to different internals (realtek is cheap and plenty…), but re-used the same USB IDs. Check this USB wireless card on x86 and a contemporary general purpose linux distribution and/ or windows (which driver is being used, does it work, etc.).

Hi tried it on os windows 10 with success.

Drivers are

It seems to be the same as rt2800. Am I missing something ?

Should I add manually some information concerning this usb device ? I have no clues.. :frowning:
