Tag: mount pendrive on openwrt

OpenWRT + WRT160NL + USB pendrive

I wanted to extend the storage space of the router so I used my old Kingston pendrive.
That is the point when I want to mention, it is very easy to do. Yet even I got stuck at some point.
Firstly you need some packages,
kmod-usb-core , for the core usb
kmod-usb-uhci or kmod-usb-ohci this depends on what kind of usb driver your router has. There won’t be a problem if you install both.
kmod-usb-storage for the storage drive
kmod-usb2 for usb 2 support
kmod-fs-ext3 | kmod-fs-vfat for the filesystem. I used kmod-fs-vfat my pendrive is formatted to this fs.
