This bug affects 5 people. Or, you can configure it to work with IPv6. From a terminal window please run:. You may be familiar with how bridging works with Microsoft Windows XP, when you connect your second network link. You’ll have to arrange naming and routing yourself, and this section shows how to set up using static IP addressing. Those cables are forbidden in USB, since the electrical connections don’t make any sense at all.

Those cables are forbidden in USB, since the electrical connections don’t make any sense at all. That means standard CDC Ethernet drivers need to have a way to blacklist Zaurus products, since they are incompatible with the protocol standard they advertise. After that the rmmod and powertop commands work, and reloading the module make the ethernet adapter work.

Since that setup doesn’t use “ifup” to bring interfaces up, you don’t need to manually set up each potential usb link. System Product Name linuc. The result was a second driver for everything mentioned above You need to log in to change this bug’s status.

CONFIG_USB_NET_AX8817X: ASIX AX88xxx Based USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapters

Except that the interface name is likely usb0 instead of usbf or usbd0. Again, the issue seems to be that queuing is pointlessly expensive compared to the extra copy needed to pack frames. It’s incomplete because Linux doesn’t need to know anything specific about products correctly implementing the CDC Ethernet class specification.


When you get these network hotplug events, you basically want to configure it. Another way to package these devices takes a bit more money to provide two “B” connectors. Changed in linux Ubuntu: These distributions have an ifup command that requires each device to be pre-configured, with a unique config file.

And for some reason, vendors seem to dislike using standard framing in their Windows drivers, so many minidrivers need to wrap a technically-unnecessary layer of headers around Ethernet packets for better interoperability. All these are based on the same core hardware.

I installed kernel 4. In current Linux it’s now a generalized core, supporting several kinds of network devices running under Linux with “minidrivers”, which are separate modules that can be as small as a pair of static data tables. This originally used separate driver, but then it merged with “usbnet”.

Set the local assignment bit, 0x02 lniux the first octet, to ensure it still uses a name like “usb0” not “eth0”. Or, use the www.

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to ‘Confirmed’.

These devices are unlike most other USB devices you’ll see. 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.


This bug affects 5 people. They may not have unique Ethernet addresses.

That’s done for several reasons, most of which boil down to making it easier to bridge these links together.

Some users have also found they need to shrink the mtu on the Zaurus, with ifconfig usb0 mtu That’s because they connect to two different hosts, not just one.

There’s an incompatible derivative of “usbnet”, called usbdnet just libux added ‘d’which expects to talk to an eth-fd driver instead of “usb-eth” linud your Zaurus. Many messages won’t be available unless debugging is enabled.

To fix that, rebuild and reinstall as appropriate; at this time you might also want to upgrade to a recent kernel. That ALI code seems to need a seven byte header that nobody’s taught Linux to use. In general, you’d rather automate such things. Once testing wsix the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as “Confirmed”.
