All these are based on the same core hardware. This driver creates an interface named “ethX”, where X depends on what other networking devices you have in use. Stable names let you build systems with logic like “since this link goes to the test network, we will firewall it carefully when we bring it up”. Unless you listen to Microsoft, who will tell you not to use such vendor-neutral protocols. I used the linux. I’ve already done it here if you don’t have a convenient way to convert the line endings.

Here’s an incomplete list of devices that the usbnet driver works with. You probably don’t want to administer routing machinery except when you’re deploying some kind of lijux.

How to configure the Linux kernel/drivers/usb/net

This can be found at http: The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus work. On such systems, you can connect any number of these devices and they’d be automatically bridged as soon as they connect.

If you don’t want to mess with your system folders, I’d suggest you copy the kernel source to a temporary location before attempting compilation: I normally run ifconfig to see when the IP address is actually assigned. The driver is young, but it seems to work with at least some Nokia cell phones. The latest code is available at http: Some users have also found they need to shrink the mtu on the Zaurus, with ifconfig usb0 mtu Or, you can configure it to work with IPv6. Sometimes they’re sold as special “adapter cables” like this one which happens to use a Prolific PL chip.


However, I don’t need it anymore because a colleague of mine already started rebuilding the kernel: Since that setup doesn’t use “ifup” to bring interfaces up, you don’t need to manually set up each potential usb link. There’s an incompatible derivative of “usbnet”, called usbdnet just an added ‘d’which expects to talk to an eth-fd driver instead of “usb-eth” inside your Zaurus.

Until that updated “usbnet” starts to be more widely available, you’ll want to read something like this SL HOWTO talking about how to do this with the original Zaurus software, and where to get the kernel patches you’ll need if you want to recreate your own kernel. These distributions have an ifup command that requires each device to be pre-configured, with a unique config file.

The link level address will usually not be one from a manufacturer’s ID prom, except on higher end devices. In particular, quite a lot of ARM chips have direct support in Linux 2. The USB host runs “usbnet”, and the other end of the link might be: Without the path being setup, I got an error about framesyn.

How to add usbnet driver to the Linux kernel? – Super User

It partially supports the goal of a fully hands-off user install experience, so that USB peripherals don’t require any sysadmin attention at all during setup, even on networks without DHCP service. That framework comes with a CDC Ethernet driver, which is used in conjunction with a driver for the specific hardware involved. It only works if your host PC doesn’t have a firewall enable. Before connecting the target device to the host PC, watch the syslog, by running the following command on the host PC:.


A bridged configuration will be less error prone. Sign up using Email and Password. usbbnet

That’s the preferred solution for Zaurus interoperability. One consequence of supporting multiple devices is that the “usbnet” driver supports several different link level framing solutions for IEEE packets over USB. The link will appear usbnt a name like “usb0”, when the link is a two-node link, or “eth0” for most CDC-Ethernet devices. Ethernet Bridging usbnet to Or, use the www.

Ethernet adapters, or devices that run like them many cable modemswould normally use names usbnef “eth0”.

Run wireshark on your host PC monitoring the usb0 interface and you don’t need any packet filters. That’s because they connect to two different hosts, not just one. Turn on compatability mode with my wireless card.
