I’ve never personally used a USB ethernet adapter in linux, but I’ve seen where others have used a windows driver and ndiswrapper to make it work.

How to get Iinksys USBM working?

Works out of the box on Raspbian. 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.

When you get these network hotplug events, you basically want to configure it. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. Later kernels split out this minidriver into its own module. Linsys bridge may cause a short delay one document said thirty seconds before you can access the new devices, and should quickly start forwarding packets.

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 sounds like others have made their USB’s work with manual settings. Ethernet adapters, or devices that run like them many cable modemswould normally use names like “eth0”. Easy to follow instructions on how to download the kernel source code and symbol files can be found in the 2nd posting hereincluding how usb200n compile the module.


Works without a powered hub or when plugged into an unpowered hub on a Model “A” Pi. Last edited by Agentvenom; at This driver originally 2. Tested with and without powered USB hub.

It only needs to wrap network packets in one of a few ways, without many demands for control handshaking.

Linksys USBM v2 – WikiDevi

The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus work. If it isn’t, you’re probably stuck going the ndiswrapper route. While it is advertised as USB 2. Llinux, they’re missing the extra electronics shown above, which is necessary to let a USB “master” host talk to another one, by making both talk through a USB “slave” device.

Linksys USB200M v2

See also this page about handling such hotplug issues, mostly with Debian and wireless. That’s linkss they connect to two different hosts, not just one. A key limitation is usually “no loops”: The driver for the chipset Asix AX included with the Raspbian kernel v 3. I tried uwb200m ndiswrapper, but it didn’t recognize the hardware. The PDA side initialization is a bit different, but the host side initialization and most of the other information provided here stays the same.

RPi USB Ethernet adapters

Reboot and you should have a fully working Ethernet adapter. The “Ethernet Gadget” code can achieve dozens of megabytes of transfer speed in both directions, if the rest of the system supports such rates.


Only the tools and commands are very different on Linux hosts; most distributions for Linux don’t yet provide a way to automatically set up your bridge that’s as easy. You might want linmsys use stable bus-info values to figure out what uusb200m address to assign to a given link, if your routing configuration needs that.

If that device talks like one of the host-to-host adapters listed above, a host won’t know it’s talking to a PDA that runs Linux directly.

The standard hotplug distribution works for everything that supports the ifup command, but that command unfortunately requires some pre-configuration. Stable names let you usb200, systems with logic like “since this link goes to the test network, we will linkssy it carefully when we bring it up”. There are several USB class standards for such adapters, and many proprietary approaches too.

It seems that Linksys released a “Ver. Except that the interface name is likely usb0 instead of usbf or usbd0.
