If your router has a USB host port, and is listed as supported on
toh.openwrt.org, or on nslu2-linux.org (look under SlugOS or Optware),
then you can run the neo as a client of the router directly through USB.
No need for another dongle, and no power issue, and the neo charges
while it's connected to.
