USB Audio Adapter work with OpenWRT

This article shows you how to play audio from a USB audio device which is connecting to a TL-LINK TL-WR1043ND wireless router.
  • Wireless router flashed with OpenWRT. This project based on TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND wireless router.
  • USB audio adapter which supported by Linux. As shown in figure below is the USB sound audio that I'm using.

    I can't tell you what is the chipset, because I don't have the audio adapter anymore.
    Your audio adapter should work as long as it is Linux supported.

    What is the USB audio chipset in the dongle. Is it Tenx TP6911

    It seems that your audio device is not recognized by your router. Did you test your audio device in your computer?
