Use Entware: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installing_Entware

Your router is mips based. Note: p901nd is included in the Archer C7 dd-wrt build. That is what the USB Printer support radio button enabled (Services - USB page).

I once had a full cups install running on a dd-wrt router. Entware will require a USB stick. Cups is not small (~150MB).

Hi,
I also would like to enable USB Printer Support on my Archer C7 v2 build 38507.
It is enabled in the menu (Services > USB), when I ssh to the router "dmesg | grep usb" output shows this:

<6>[ 10.380000] usb 1-1: Product: HP Color LaserJet CP1215
<6>[ 10.390000] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
<6>[ 10.390000] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: LJ08B77
<6>[ 10.750000] usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage
<6>[ 11.000000] usblp 1-1:1.0: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x4717
<6>[ 11.010000] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp
<6>[ 11.050000] usbip_core: USB/IP Core v1.0.0
<6>[ 11.060000] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1058, idProduct=1130
<6>[ 11.060000] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

Hoewer netstat -a does not show anything listening on 9100 port. Command lsusb shows this:

-sh: lsusb: not found

Also command ps does not show process p9100d running.

If I install Entware does this mean that I will have to sacrifice one of the USB ports? Currently both of them are occupied (hard drive and printer).
I would prefer a solution without ditching the hard drive unless absolutely necessary.
Please help, any advice is welcome.

I would partition a small (~500mb would be more than enough) section of the hard drive to ext3/4 and use it for Entware. If you label it Optware and Automatic Mounting is turned on, DD-WRT will auto mount it to /opt.

ext4 would be recommended for Hard drives.
