Hack to add USB port (and webcam) to WRT54g??

    I have seen several exploits of people adding 1 or 2 serial ports to the WRT54G.

    Does anyone know whether it would be possible to add a USB port to allow either connecting more storate or other external devices such as a webcam.

    I think that it would be neat to build a wireless webcam for under $100 based on the WRT54G plus a cheap webcam. Presumably one would use the included webserver plus a hacked version of the firmware.

    Anybody know if this is possible?

    Also of course the USB port could be used to run other external devices...

    linux usb support is horrible even with a full kernel this little guy has such a hacked kernel that even if the hardware was able to support USB it wouldnt work for nearly anyting.

    and no the board cannot support usb.
