I want to add a wifi USB Stick to the RUT955. In OpenWRT this is possible installing the corresponding driver. In my case it is the kmod-rtl8192cu

Unfortunately I can not install the driver, can anyone help me?

root@RUT955:~# opkg install kmod-rtl8192cu

Hello,

Potentially Kernel version is outdated. Kernel version of the device cannot be updated/downgrated without major changes to routers SW.
