I have a tiny router (ASUS WL-500g deluxe, MIPS CPU, 32 MB RAM, 2x USB2), and would like to make it work with a USB DSL modem.

Right now, it's running Debian and kernel 2.6.17, and boots off a USB-stick.

My problem is, that it only sees USB storage devices (USB sticks etc.).

When I connect other devices (USB modem, webcam, microphone, keyboard, printer etc.), they are not detected. By "not detected" I mean there are no "dmesg" entries with the device name, and no devices, other than "USB storage", listed with "lsusb".

I even compiled "USB verbose logging" in, but it only gives me a couple of debug infos, no clue why the devices doesn't show up.

It looks that something's borked in 2.6.17 kernel.

When I load ohci module, it complains a lot:

USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v3.0
PCI: Fixing up device 0000:01:02.0
uhci_hcd 0000:01:02.0: no i/o regions available
uhci_hcd 0000:01:02.0: init 0000:01:02.0 fail, -16
uhci_hcd: probe of 0000:01:02.0 failed with error -16
PCI: Fixing up device 0000:01:02.1
uhci_hcd 0000:01:02.1: no i/o regions available
uhci_hcd 0000:01:02.1: init 0000:01:02.1 fail, -16
uhci_hcd: probe of 0000:01:02.1 failed with error -16

With 2.4.30 kernel, ohci module loads fine, and I can use all USB devices:

# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:3011 Hewlett-Packard
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0471:0310 Philips PCVC730K WebCam [pwc]

Ideas what can be wrong?
