USB problems after upgrading to 22.03.3

Hi I’m using an GL iNet AR300M16 on a fresh OpenWrt 23.03
Everything was working fine before upgrade (from 22.02, i was advised to upgrade by someone) I also have to note that the USB adapter was plugged in while the router was being upgraded

Also the wifi adapter works on every other device I tested it on (my laptop, PC)
Trying to plug a WiFi adapter in (TL-WN722N V1)
Results in nothing
Not even a single line of output in dmesg even hinting that a device was connected

I have all necessary drivers to run the USB adapter (I think?) but the device just isn’t detecting anything
Here’s output of dmesg grep usb

root@OpenWrt:~# dmesg | grep usb
[    4.245813] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbfs
[    4.251656] usbcore: registered new interface driver hub
[    4.257246] usbcore: registered new device driver usb
[    4.297763] ehci-platform 1b000000.usb: EHCI Host Controller
[    4.303720] ehci-platform 1b000000.usb: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
[    4.311966] ehci-platform 1b000000.usb: irq 3, io mem 0x1b000000
[    4.339740] ehci-platform 1b000000.usb: USB 2.0 started, EHCI 1.00
[   15.553034] usbcore: registered new interface driver ath9k_htc

and that's with the USB being plugged in and out two times. No logs at all

Thank you in advance!

does it work elsewhere ?

Yes I tried it on my laptop and PC works perfectly

but I think for some reason the upgrade messed up the router's USB ports because there was a device plugged in already? I am not sure but this is just a feeling


Stumbled upon this github PR

and the last comment stated that using a snapshot fixed the problem

and it did fix the problem!

Good luck to everyone
