wtb: miniPCI USB2 EHCI, Nec chip
« on: January 25, 2021, 03:08:48 pm »
I don't know if this is the right place to ask but ... I am really in a big trouble with a hobby project I am running because the project is based on the RB532 router and ... there is no USB port to connect an hard-drive.

The router has three 10/100 ethernet ports, they are all sued, and even if I had a fourth one available I couldn't use NFS for this stuff, and I cannot change the router with a modern model, long story about reasons, but at this point I'd better find a workaround.

I know there where some miniPCI USB2 ECHI modules around in the mid 2000s, with a NEC chip on them. Sadly I cannot find one on eBay (I have been looking daily for 1 year).

Does anyone, by any chance, have one for sale? Or does anyone know where to buy one?

Thanks :D

I don't have any, sorry, only some regular PCI USB2 cards. You might try to periodically check on the japanese Auction site too: .
