I know I have a lot going on here, but I feel like my question may be simple.
I have this:
running FriendlyWrt which uses these repositories:
that I am trying to use as a wifi router with this:
I have manually installed the drivers and this is the dmesg output when I unplug and replug the device.
[ 1258.698681] usb 5-1: USB disconnect, device number 3
[ 1275.965906] usb 5-1: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-platform

[ 1276.167296] usb 5-1: Manufacturer: Ralink
[ 1276.171349] usb 5-1: SerialNumber: 1.0
That is the end of dmesg, wifi is not working, no /etc/config/wireless file gets created, no wlan in ifconfig, no radio shows up, no wireless option in luci
When I plug the same device into my RaspberryPi 4 with Raspbian, this is the dmesg output:

My question, how do I force the ZeroPi to do the ieee80211 stuff that the RPi4 did to associate the physical device with wireless?
