Hello, i have installed openwrt and luci on my tl-wr703n.
All is working fine but the usb port is never mounted .
With Dmesg, i see then device (3g usb huawei)  is detected but not mounted as ttyUSBx ...

What can I do?

Thanks you.

When I try to install the Kmod-usb-serial package, i have this error :
Collected errors:
* satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-usb-serial-wwan:
*     kernel (= 3.3.8-1-5566392ba3947228e76b8c9283f833d0) *     kernel (= 3.3.8-1-5566392ba3947228e76b8c9283f833d0) *
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-usb-serial

Anybody can help me?

thanks .

If you run a self compiled image then compile kmod-usb-serial yourself, if you run a snapshot then reflash with the latest version of it.

This happens when you flashed a kernel version snapshot, then try to install a missing kernel module from a newer snapshot: they both have to be of the same version.

So either install both at the same time, or take a version off Subversion and install locally from it.

Hi, Thanks you for your replys.
I have flashed the router with the last snapshot, and all the package was succeessfully installed.
Now, all is fine, the 3G key is recognized and connect to internet.

Thanks you
