How to add USB to Serial Cable

Sat Jan 11, 2020 7:40 pm

How do you connect a USB to serial cable on the USB host port? I would like to add a FTDI serial cable on the USB port.

Best,

John

If VoCore2 USB Host, it is not possible.
But you can use USB2TTL convert one VoCore2's UART to USB device. then you can connect it to USB host.

Is there anyway to make it possible in OpenWRT? Add a device driver, etc?

MT76x8 USB port only support host mode, do not support OTG mode.
So only USB device can connect to it. It can not connect to other USB host without adaptor (like USB2TLL. USB2Ethernet)

But, this is in host mode. I am connecting a FTDI cable to the USB side to make add another serial port. Not USB on the go and not a USB device.

If host mode it is easy, when you compile firmware, select in make menuconfig, kernel->usb->serial and under that menu, you will find FTDI driver kmod there.
