The epkowa backend supports some scanners that dont use binary
plugins. Your scanner requires a plugin.

I have only very basic knowledge of linux, so I apologize if I just proposed something lame/stupid/impossible :), but afaik openwrt runs ok on wl500g, isn't there a possibility to get the backend here?
