You should usually set the netmask to However, I don’t need it anymore because a colleague of mine already started rebuilding the kernel: If 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. Less configuration means fewer important things can go wrong. Those two Zaurus-specific drivers use nonstandard framing for Ethernet over USB, although the “eth-fd” driver enumerates as if it were conformant with the CDC Ethernet specification.

Two devices with different brand labeling on the box and device may look identical at the USB level.

How to Use USB Device Networking | Linux USB Network

You probably don’t want to administer routing machinery except when you’re deploying some kind of firewall. They get this by using a uusbnet ARM kernel such as 2. USB devices are recognized, but when llinux a usb network adapter no network interface is created. Super User works best with JavaScript enabled. If your device is very “ethernet-like” named ethN then your sysadmin tools will probably recognize them and help you set up the interface; else you’ll edit system config files.

Since that setup doesn’t use “ifup” to bring interfaces up, you don’t need to manually set up each potential usb link. The USB host runs “usbnet”, and the other end of the link might be: It partially supports the goal of a fully hands-off user install experience, so that USB peripherals don’t require any sysadmin attention at all during setup, even on networks without DHCP service.


Without the path being setup, Llinux got an error about framesyn. 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. Linyx up using Facebook.

Those cables are forbidden in USB, since the electrical connections don’t make any sense at all. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

One type is a host-to-host network cable. Look for a package called “kernel-source” or something. Email Required, but never shown.

How to add usbnet driver to the Linux kernel? – Super User

The Wbem directory is needed for the netsh utility to work properly this is used a couple of steps down the list. One such boot loader is BLOB. Linux defines some standard interpretations for the “message level” bits, which are not widely used Later kernels split out this minidriver into its own module.

For dynamically assigned Ethernet addresses, that can’t work; using “bus-info” is the appropriate solution. If you install an alternate image, such as the Linux 2. The host side initialization in those cases usnbet exactly as shown earlier, since the host uses the “usbnet” driver. Turn on compatability mode with my wireless card.


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. It’s incomplete because Linux doesn’t need to know anything specific about products correctly implementing the CDC Ethernet class specification.

How to configure the Linux kernel/drivers/usb/net

On your host PC, you need to make sure the Instead, it will have been “locally assigned” during initialization of the “usbnet” driver.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks for your response. In my case, it was the same as my old Usnet address but with the first byte changed which made copy and pasting the MAC address easy.

That framework comes with a CDC Ethernet driver, which is used in conjunction with a driver for the specific hardware involved. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
