Consider this another device confirmed to work with the Sheeva Plug v1.0

The details on how to unpack and setup the kernel source provided on the CD rom are explained here http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=515.0

I picked up a TrendNet TU-ET100C adapter today and went to the unpacked kernel source on the plug then executed:

make config

* USB Network Adapters
USB Pegasus/Pegasus-II based ethernet device support (USB_PEGASUS) [N/m/y/?] m
Multi-purpose USB Networking Framework (USB_USBNET) [N/m/y/?] m

make modules
make modules_install


Plugged in the adapter and # tail /var/log/messages reports:

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ehci_marvell and address 2
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
pegasus: v0.6.14 (2006/09/27), Pegasus/Pegasus II USB Ethernet driver
pegasus 1-1:1.0: setup Pegasus II specific registers
pegasus 1-1:1.0: eth2, ADMtek ADM8511 "Pegasus II" USB Ethernet, 00:14:d1:1b:d8:38

# vi /ec/network/interfaces

auto eth2

# ifup eth2

# ifconfig

if you copy just the kernel module to another plug

mkdir -p /lib/modules/

also be sure to run the depmod -a command while in


the link light on the adapter doesn't light up unless there is a link when attached to the plug.. this is in contrast to when the adapter is attached to a Windows XP machine, the link light on the adapter lights up even when there is no link.
