Raspberry Pi 4 UE300 usb to ethernet not working

I just got my Pi and installed OpenWRT on it and when trying to get the WAN interface going I can't figure out why I can't see the USB dongle. I don't know what I am doing wrong.
AddInterface

From what I've read, I've got the drivers installed, I don't know if I need to start something now or add the new interface in linux or what?

Below is what I hope to be enough information for someone to help me out, thanks in advance.

Firmware Version	OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r13978-d15b6e4895 / LuCI Master git-20.212.22028-8f54db8

Thank you, you're awesome!

no worries mate...

you wrote excellent detail and did all the appropriate groundwork, that is commendable... great example for others
:frog:

( and the only way I really knew driver it was was from trendy / other posts here - they don't exactly write it on the box for you :frowning: )
