Storage [Q] How to use an Ethernet USB adapter with Xperia V?

Hi there,

I'd like to use an USB adapter to connect my Xperia V to my LAN. I've already bought an adapter with AX88178 chipset which works perfectly in combination with a Xperia Z1 Compact and a Nexus 10 tablet, but when I connect it to the XV, the LED of the adapter flashes for the fraction of a second and then it turns off completely. The phone shows no reaction.
Firmwares I have tried: Stock 9.2.A.1.210 (4.3) and 9.1.A.1.141 (4.1), CM 10.2 and CM 11.

Has anyone successfully connected an Ethernet adapter to his phone? I could return my adapter and buy another one if any other would work.
Thanks in advance!
