There’s also a version of this in current versions of Busybox. You may be familiar with how bridging works with Microsoft Windows XP, when you connect your second network link. It makes sense to have a common driver core because only a handful of control and setup operations really need product- or class-specific code. Likely better status handshaking would help a lot. Instead, it will have been “locally assigned” during initialization of the “usbnet” driver. All these are based on the same core hardware. One such boot loader is BLOB.

CONFIG_USB_NET_AX8817X: ASIX AX88xxx Based USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapters

I am now using kernel 4. Post as a guest Name.

So it’s easy to configure bridging ; a laptop might connect to a desktop with a USB networking cable, and then to the local LAN through a bridge. As shown here, nothing happens if there’s no “lan” bridge; so this change could go into config files on any system that might ever use a bridge called “lan” in this particular way. It could linuxx a home gateway, or any other kind of device or gadget where embedding Linux can give your product an edge. Less configuration means fewer important things can go wrong.

Or, you can configure it to work with IPv6. Failed to enable hardware MII access oinux Comment on this change optional. The latest version of the usbnet driver include support for some firmware that Epson provided to help system-on-chip applications using Epson SOCs interoperate better with Linux.


A single USB 2.

Basically, 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. You should be able to use “usbnet” to talk to these gadgets from Linux hosts, and its device side acts much llinux the iPaq scenario described here.

Using ASIX products under Linux

Aix you’re using Ubuntu or Debian, you’re lucky to have some decent examples of how to set up bridges as part of your “ifupdown” documentation. But now I got some more data for the non-working AX adapter: The rest of these configuration instructions are oriented towards devices that are not very “ethernet-like”.

The only way you can legally connect one host to another is through one of these special devices which accepts commands from two kinux at the same time. Another way to package these devices takes a bit more money to provide two “B” connectors.

Get linkx right network settings from your local network admin. Changed in linux Ubuntu: You can preconfigure those tools, modify the system setup to automate more of the setup, or more typically do both.

Linux defines some standard interpretations for the “message level” bits, which are not widely used Since that’s the only USB networking protocol built into MS-Windows, it’s interesting even though it’s a proprietary protocol with only incomplete public documentation. Email Required, but never shown.


Be careful using Bridged configurations with PDAs. Until that updated “usbnet” starts to be more widely available, you’ll want to read something like this SL HOWTO talking about how to do this with the original Zaurus software, linxu where to get the kernel patches you’ll need if you want to recreate your own kernel.

Host-to-host cables automatically use pairs of unique “locally assigned” IEEE addresses, and do not cause such problems. At the same linjx the Linux community was doing the work above in public, Zaurus SLD development was being done behind closed doors.

There’s another interesting case that the usbnet driver handles. Among other things, it seems that MS-Windows does so much work when hooking up a new device that it’s easy for one thing to go wrong, which can sometimes completely lock up the USB port to which you connect the device. 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.

The older plusb driver, found in 2. In particular, quite a lot of ARM chips have direct support in Linux 2. At this time, the interface might look like this through “ifconfig” or “ip”:.
