I do not see anywhere to enable it and it did not detect it when I connected it to the router. The current jffs partition is read-only. I was hoping to use the USB Flash Drive for for jffs and then be able to follow some of the docs that provide the steps for manually adding packages with ipkg. Any tips are appreciated.
There are several different distributions of the DD-WRT firmware. The mini contains all the features of the standard distribution,with the exception of chillispot, nocat, rflow, kaid, CIFS client, SNMP, IPv6, and MMC/SD card support. The standard (std) distribution includes all features,with the exception of VOIP. The standard-nokaid (std-nokaid) distribution includes all features of standard, with kaid removed to free some flash space.The VOIP distribution includes all features, with kaid removed to make room for Milkfish.The VPN edition includes OpenVPN but does not include IPv6, CIFS client, or kaid.The micro edition is a stripped down version designed for the WRT54G v5 and other 2MB router models.
A little late to respond... but the problem is that the TEW-811DRU firmware had grown too large and could no longer fit, so support for USB was removed at some point in 2018. The last version to have USB (and still fit on the flash) was build 33986 from December 2017.
