[Solved] Using CP2102 on ASUS RT-N18U

Hi everyone!

Has anyone used cp2102 on asus rt-n18u?

When I plug the bridge in and use cat /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices I get output for my router hubs only. I don't get the lines for the bridge, saying no driver is installed.

If i use opkg update && opkg install kmod-usb-serial-cp210x I get

Collected errors:
 * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-usb-serial-cp210x:
 * 	kernel (= 4.14.91-1-06a18857d498b0b42295b596c2c7050b) * 	kernel (= 4.14.91-1-06a18857d498b0b42295b596c2c7050b) * 
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-usb-serial-cp210x.

while uname -a gives me Linux OpenWrt 4.14.89 #0 SMP Wed Dec 19 15:08:30 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux


You need to use a package repo that is consistent with your ROM.


Hi Jeff!

Thanks for your answer.

I resolved the issue by upgrading to the latest snapshot.

This is because you have an older kernel, kernel is upgraded from time to time on snapshots releases

Thanks everyone. I resolved the issue by upgrading to the latest debug build.
