1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / USB NIC on: April 17, 2009, 02:41:25 PM
First, it's great to see that a brand new community has sprung up around this new device.  I've been using linux for 5ish years, but never in an embedded environment such as this.

My plan is to turn my SheevaPlug into a firewall, to replace my current overpowered and noisy one.  Since there's only one NIC, I got a USB one, a Trendnet TU2-ET100, but i guess not surprisingly, the device doesn't seem to come with drivers for it out of the box.

First, here is the relevant dmesg info from my laptop, which is running Ubuntu 8.10

usb 3-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
eth1: register 'asix' at usb-0000:00:1a.7-2, ASIX AX88772 USB 2.0 Ethernet, 00:50:b6:05:43:c4
usbcore: registered new interface driver asix

Then here is the output from Sheeva

usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_marvell and address 3
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

So it seems the Sheeva isn't recognizing the device and/or doesn't have the relevant driver available.  Any tips for how to get this device working?
