USB network devices not working :(
Thanks a lot for this Ubuntu distro.
USB-Host mode works OK without loosing WiFi: mouse and pendrives do work.
But I can not make work any USB network device:
- USB Ethernet device (USB to RJ45, you know): it is detected (I see it using "lsusb"), Ubuntu configures a new "eth1", I do "sudo ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.55 netmask... etc", the RJ45 light is ON (even at the switch)... but there is no ping reponse :(
- USB WiFi device: I have tested 4 of them. They are all detected (I see them using "lsusb" too), but Ubuntu doesn't configures anything, and "iwconfig" don't show them.

Any advices?
Thanks.

Did you change the zImage to ethernet or adb one? Else not sure.
Also not sure about usb wifi, I have always used internal wifi.

Yes, I did. Only USB-Host zImage success in making my USB Ethernet and USB WiFi devices lights start blinking. ADB and USBEthernet zImages do not
Why, if our kernel is >=2.6, these devices can not start? I thought USBNet core was included in Linux kernel since 2.1 (or before). And Ubuntu 10.10 works like a charm with any wifi device, detecting it at once.

Sounds like you need to configure the kernel to include support for your particular wlan devices. There are general instructions on http://htc-linux.org/wiki/index.php?...rtGuide#Kernel but you will need to search for the correct kernel config options for your wifi devices.

Let us know if you get stuck.

BTW, I think USBNet is something different (connects device to pc via usb cable)

This is fine. I will look at this documentation.

Mmm... however, Ubuntu v10.10 works fine with practically any wifi USB device, even using package injection. Isn't there a config option to make all of them work?

No, I think not. USBNet si the driver that makes USB Network devices work in Linux Kernel:

http://www.linux-usb.org/usbnet/

I believe you refer to what we do call here "USB Ethernet": a connection to PC via USB that gives HTC HD2 a IP address and network capability. There is no RJ45 jack or cable in that.

The ONLY way is using USBHOST's kernel, but not usbnet or adb,
after plugging in those device, try figure out what happened by viewing the kernel log.

Desktop version's ubuntu is different from this, at least, the CPU arch. is different.

I see there are few lan drivers in the kernel option, you can look into it.

Well, I do have several USB WiFi devices. I can give you model and chipset names.
There is a long time since the last time I made any Linux kernel compilation, so I am not very used to the procedure right now. Are you going to compile them into a next release of this Ubuntu for HTC HD2 or similar? If yes, could you please share the results, so we all can test it?
