I recently purchased this WiFi dongle from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00EZOQFHO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I installed OpenWrt on my spare Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and everything works fine, however when I plug the dongle into the RPi, it does not show.
When I type
lsusb before AND after:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0424:7800 Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:2514 Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:2514 Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux 5.4.154 dwc_otg_hcd DWC OTG Controller
I have tested the device on another RPi 3 B+ and tested the USB ports on this one. My only guess is that OpenWrt doesn't come with the required drivers.
Please let me know if you need any more info,
Thanks in advance,
