    Hello

    I am trying to get USB network adapters to work with zeroshell, but to no awail. I can see kernel detecting the network card, but new ETH** does not appear. Not even after restart. So far have tried with 2.6.36.3 and 3.2.9 kernel. Have tried 3 different USB ethernet adapters – 2 cheap chinese ones and one belkin gigabit USB2 adapter.

    If anyone has got any USB NIC-s working with zeroshell, please let us know, what kind of adapters were those and what version of kernel and zeroshell did you use.

    Thank you in advance!

    I did try 3.3.7 kernel now and here is the log:

    But I get nothing in Networking tab. Any idea, what I am I doing wrong?

    I tested USB network adapters with new 3.14.21-ZS-PAE kernel and good news – all of them work! Although ” Unknown Model” is displayed in GUI. To get any of those NICs appear in GUI Zeroshell router restart is needed.

    More details here:

    Belkin Gigabit USB:

    [ 2.148127] usb 5-6: new high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci
    [ 2.311637] usb 5-6: New USB device found, idVendor=050d, idProduct=5055
    [ 2.311645] usb 5-6: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [ 2.311651] usb 5-6: Product: F5D5055
    [ 2.311655] usb 5-6: Manufacturer: Belkin F5D5055 Gig USB
    [ 2.311660] usb 5-6: SerialNumber: 000001

    Works very well, speed over 250Mbps up and down (limited by the speed of my internet connection). Stability also seems good.

    100M Chinese USB NIC made of white plastic :

    [ 2.290296] usb 5-6: Manufacturer: USBLINK
    [ 2.290300] usb 5-6: SerialNumber: 000003

    Works, speed is close to 100Mbps both up and down.

    [ 2.924249] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0fe6, idProduct=9700
    [ 2.924256] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=2, SerialNumber=0

    [ 6.671383] usbcore: registered new interface driver dm9601
    [ 19.715333] dm9601 3-2:1.0 ETH04: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0xFFFF

    Says link up although no cable connected. causes web interface and SSH connection to crawl after startup, later speed is OK.

    Internet works, speed is 5-6 Mbps both up and down. I get same speeds with that USB LAN adapter under Windows, so this is just slow interface, not a driver issue.
    I have also had stability issues with this one – in Windows on prolonged use (several hours) gets quite hot. I’d better steer clear of this one! Looks like that:

    All in all, using USB NICs is finally viable option for me with Zeroshell. Just placed an order for a used Belkin Gigabit!
