In general, you’d rather automate such things. Changed to the other adapter, and it worked instantly and got an IP Address. It also eliminates the need to route a two-node subnet for each new USB network device, making network administrators happier with your choice of peripheral hardware. It could be a home gateway, or any other kind of device or gadget where embedding Linux can give your product an edge. Another is that most bugfixes automatically benefit even the devices they weren’t seen with.

There’s another interesting case that the usbnet driver handles. So if you need additional data from it just say what you need, I am using Ubuntu To post a comment you must log in. That’s done for several reasons, most of which boil down to making it easier to bridge these links together. One consequence of supporting multiple devices is that the “usbnet” driver supports several different link level framing solutions for IEEE packets over USB. I am currently reporting this bug without the adapter connected, because I would have no network.

As I said, I take the USB-ethernet dongle off and insert another, from another brand, and it works flawlessly. There are several USB class standards for such adapters, and many proprietary approaches too. For dynamically assigned Ethernet addresses, that can’t work; using “bus-info” is the appropriate solution.

They’re not GUI tools, but they’re a better start than what’s sketched here. I ruled out networkmanager idiosyncrasies of “managed” and “not managed” because I configured it both ways and tried also with ifupdown and directly with ifconfig up and dhclient.


I think this issue can be closed.

You’ll need to do that by hand, since most sysadmin tools don’t understand bridge configuration. There’s also a version of this in current versions of Busybox. As shown here, nothing happens if there’s no “lan” bridge; so this change could go into config files on any system that might ever use a bridge called “lan” in this particular way. It makes sense to have a common driver core because only a handful of control and setup operations really need product- or class-specific code.

And maybe changing vendor and product IDs.

That’s because they connect to two different hosts, not just one. This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus work. Notice that this has two “A” connectors built in, as well as the special device inside the molded plastic; use your X-Ray goggles.

Lihux other things, that means that if there’s more than one such PDA in use at your site, everyone who may be bridging one of them should override that non-unique address. Email me about changes to this bug report. The “Ethernet Gadget” code can achieve dozens of megabytes of transfer speed in both directions, if the rest of the system supports such rates.

The standard hotplug distribution works for everything that supports the ifup command, but that command unfortunately requires some pre-configuration.

At this time, the interface might look like this through “ifconfig” or “ip”:. To bring the interface up by hand, you might type:.


You may be familiar with how bridging works with Microsoft Windows XP, when you connect your second network link. There is one time you may need such cables: One such boot loader is BLOB. As yet, there is no Linux support for the new CDC “Ethernet Emulation Model”; other than supporting that link management protocol, there’s no end-user value in defining yet another framing scheme. It’s incomplete because Linux doesn’t need to know anything specific about products correctly implementing the CDC Ethernet class specification.

Those two Zaurus-specific drivers use nonstandard framing for Ethernet over USB, although the “eth-fd” driver enumerates as if it were conformant with the CDC Ethernet specification. You’ll have to arrange naming and routing yourself, and this section shows how to set up using static IP addressing.
