Hi Firefolk,

The module is available over opkg and the install works great for me.

Install it like this:

opkg update && opkg install kmod-usb-serial-cp210x

If that doesn't work, do the following:

wget "http://wifipineapple.com/mk5/packages/kmod-usb-serial-cp210x_3.3.8-1_ar71xx.ipk" -O /tmp/kmod-usb-serial-cp210x.ipk && opkg install /tmp/kmod-usb-serial-cp210x.ipk

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

Hi Sebkinne,

I was able to install the module with the --force-depends option:

[ 1408.570000] usbcore: registered new interface driver cp210x
[ 1408.580000] cp210x: v0.09:Silicon Labs CP210x RS232 serial adaptor driver
lsmod finds an attached device as well
usbcore 99168 24 cp210x,pl2303,option,ch341,belkin_sa,ark3116,rndis_host,usb_wwan,cdc_ether,asix,usbserial,usbnet,cdc_acm,ath9k_htc,ledtrig_usbdev,rt2800usb,rtl8187,rt73usb,rt2x00usb,usb_storage,uhci_hcd,ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd
Thanks for that hint.
How do I get information about the device name, my GPS mouse gets connected to?
