Does anyone know of a kernel for Note2 (N7100) that supports this?
I asked the same question. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...light=ethernet
And no one answered. I need this functionality too. It seems nobody can help.
It`s only way to ask ROM builder to add these features to their products, i think.

To confirm the above:
Yearsterday I received USB to RJ45 LAN Ethernet HUB internet Adapter (ebay.com/itm/USB-to-RJ45-LAN-Ethernet-HUB-internet-Adapter-for-google-Android-Tablet-pad-Tab-/250894821624)
It does not work with my Note 2 (GT-N7100, Omega v12 - XXDMB2), although it works great with ASUS PadFone2 and with desktop (windows7 64).

Cool Micro USB to Ethernet Port Adapter for Galaxy note 2

Hi folks

usb to ethernet seems to work on Android for some, I guess hardware and operating system (embedded drivers?) have to match this device

For my Asus Transformer I can use their ethernet adapter by simply plug it in.
On my Samsung Note 2 JB 4.1 nothing happens...

Would rooting help?
Anyone managed to have it work?

I know that wifi is a much easier method but it's good to know it doesn't work on this device

Sorry for my bad english, I'll try to improve

these items works on the Transformer with JB 4.1

I don't understand people, who think: if i don't need it, nobody need it.
I bought note to use it on work. Ideally it should be used instead of a laptop.
The problem is that I am not allowed, for safety reasons, to use wireless link.
And actually it interesting to make it work.
But thanks for the tip, in other way it can be useful.

As discussed above it did not work with N2.
I think Renthal (message #8) and el56 (message #9) are right.
We need kernel for Note2 (N7100) that supports this feature.
But still nobody has found the ROM or Kernel for GT-N7100, which correctly work with USB Ethernet adapter.
Only root will not help.

I have a second device, a Nexus 7, which (unlike my N2) is rooted. The stock kernel in the Nexus 7 does not support Ethernet-over-USB, and many third-party kernels also do not. However, I did find one kernel -- "Bricked" -- that did. Since installing that kernel, that device now works very well over wired using a $2 OTG cable and a $4 USB Ethernet adaptor (both bought on eBay)

(That setup actually worked in a real-world situation - a hotel in Beijing, that has only wired Internet - in which a Wifi Ethernet router didn't work because of post-connection login requirements.)

This experiences confirms the contention that the drivers for Ethernet-over USB are *available* for Android kernels, but that stock kernels (and most auxilliary ones) have chosen not to implement them. The answer for Note 2 users is to convince Samsung (or, more likely, custom kernel builders) to enable Ethernet drivers that already exist.

I remember seeing patches for Honeycomb stock kernels for numerous devices that add alot of drivers. It maybe feasible to compile the kernel modules and insmod them, if we have kernel sources. Do we have them? Hellllllooooo?!
And I'd like to have this functionality. To all people wondering why one would need to use such *cough* ancient *cough* technology as wires:
At my workplace there is no 3G coverage (hell, it struggles to connect to EDGE, falling back to GPRS, voice calls also suck), and we're not allowed to use any kind of WiFi or Bluetooth or any other radio, including wireless mouse/keyboards (corporate industrial network sucks all the channels, anyway), but we're supplied with wired, unfiltered network going straight to internet, just for sake of having internet on our devices (my work consists of cycles 1-2 hours of intense coding, and 1-2 hours of empty waiting for tests), so we won't get bored to death. So.... I want my ethernet dongle working!

Yeah, I really need that feature too.
I have 2 young daugthers and my wife doesn't want to hear about wifi or 3G at home, cause of health concerns.

And in addition, I work in a company where wireless connections are not allowed for security reasons.

So Ethernet connection through USB adaptateur is almost the only option for me.

But isn't it possible to install drivers on an androids smartphone, as we usually do on PC ?
(Sorry for the newb question)
