You might want to use stable bus-info values to figure out what network address to assign to a given link, if your routing configuration needs that. Sign up using Facebook. You should usually set the netmask to You should be able to use “usbnet” to talk to these gadgets from Linux hosts, and its device side acts much like the iPaq scenario described here. That ALI code seems to need a seven byte header that nobody’s taught Linux to use. The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus work. The host side initialization in those cases is exactly as shown earlier, since the host uses the “usbnet” driver.

Be careful using Bridged configurations with PDAs. The kernel in the PDA or whatever embedded Linux device you’re working with uses a slightly different driver. You’ll have to arrange naming and routing yourself, and this section shows how to set up using static IP addressing.

They may not have unique Ethernet addresses. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Tamale uictamale wrote on 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. The current zcip software works with recent versions of usbnet.

Using ASIX products under Linux

I think this issue can be closed. Please try Linux 4. Another approach to using IP over USB is to make the device look like a serial line or telecommunications modem, and then run PPP over those protocols. Or, use the www.


The link level address will usually not be one from a manufacturer’s ID prom, except on higher end devices. Failed to enable software MII access [ The driver is young, but it seems to work with at least some Nokia cell linxu. They’re hooked up using standard “A-to-B” cables, usually provided with the device, so these again connect to each host using an “A” connector.

They get this by using a mainstream ARM kernel such as 2.

Two systems are being directly connected. I’ve had the best luck with the designs used by Belkin and NetChip. It’s incomplete because Linux doesn’t need to know anything specific about products ,inux implementing the CDC Ethernet class specification.

The Belkin device shown above has an AVR microcontroller and two aeix purpose USB interface chips, but most other such devices take a lower cost approach using specialized chips. My next step would be to put some sort of fan back there, but so far, this has not been necessary. Changed in linux Ubuntu: They’re not GUI tools, but they’re a better start than what’s sketched here. As a standard network link, you could just configure it for use with IPv4.

Those are good to understand, since some other devices described here need to be administered like those cables; Linux bridging is a useful tool to make those two-node networks more manageable, and Windows XP includes this functionality too. Asi, it will liux been “locally assigned” during initialization of the “usbnet” driver.


The second part of bridge setup makes hotplugging add all USB interfaces to that bridge.

Linux Kernel Driver DataBase: CONFIG_USB_NET_AXX: ASIX AX88xxx Based USB Ethernet Adapters

All these are based on the same core hardware. Some systems aren’t robust with zero length packets.

Seek out other options if you can. Starting with Linux kernel 2.

AXB – ASIX Electronics Corporation

With older kernels, just “modprobe usbnet” to get everything; newer kernels modprobe the minidriver, which depends on usbnet to do all the USB-specific work. The older plusb driver, found in 2. Another issue is that the two Ethernet addresses advertised by “eth-fd” don’t seem to be unique, so that using them for all of the PDAs in a workgroup linkx be problematic.

It requires significant power in order to transmit linyx signal to the WiFi modem that is located nearby.
