USB LAN at Orange Pi PC

I want to add one more NIC to my Orange Pi PC with OpenWRT 18.06

dmesg tells:

[45.521359] usb 7-1: new full-speed USB device number 2 using ohci-platform
[45.790384] usb 7-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0fe6, idProduct=9700
[45.797106] usb 7-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[45.804646] usb 7-1: Product: USB 2.0 10/100M Ethernet Adaptor

In archive USB wiki said install:

opkg install kmod-usb-net kmod-usb-net-rndis kmod-usb-net-cdc-ether usbutils udev

But there is no udev in opkg list.

Please tell me how to add new usb NIC.

The page you linked is about tethering to a cell phone. Is that what you're looking to do, or to plug in a USB Ethernet dongle?

Many of the package lists, especially on the old wiki (current is, are outdated. Installing the "main" package or packages (or adding to a build) should automatically add the appropriate dependencies.

opkg install kmod-usb-net-sr9700

I bought one on ebay for $10, but turned out to be 20 year old USB 1.1 garbage. Most vendors advertise USB 2.0 10/100M, but it is not so. I found a better adapter carrying this USB208A, NO.:81RY52, and bought 6 pcs for my Banana Pi M1 router's wan interface.
opkg install kmod-usb-net-rtl8152

The LAN interface on the Orange Pi R1 drops out after a few hours of operation. The Banana Pi M1, with 4X CPU surface area, runs reliably.

The solution is:


Bus 008 Device 003: ID 0fe6:9700 ICS Advent DM9601 Fast Ethernet Adapter

opkg list|grep 9601

kmod-usb-net-dm9601-ether - 4.14.54-1

opkg install kmod-usb-net-dm9601-ether
