I guess in theory, one of the ones mentioned in this article might work.

In one of my rooms the wifi coverage is very low - so it is tempting to try to get one of them to test.

Need one that is supported by linux or drivers will for sure be the doom. The question is only wht support has actually been included by Asus.

This thread looked interesting to me, thanks OP.

I have tested some of these before in another project. I found differences in even what was supposed to be the same models, weird stuff. I did find a few models that worked on LINUX, but I will have to dig around to find them.

A good test might be to find a model that quasi *auto detects* and operates on a specific version of LINUX, as a prerequisite, and then test on the dock.

The amount of OS/configuration modifications to *auto detect* should me minimal or none.

Hmm, youll probably need to compile the drivers as modules and manually insert them before it might work. But its worth a shot to just try one first

It's working! I connected my n900 via usb and set it to network mode. :P
did netcfg usb1 dhcp and got the address from dhcp.
I wonder why they didn't include ifconfig in android :S

Also, I suspect you can use usb0 (client mode port) to connect to your pc.

Confirm: Connect to LAN using USB to RJ45 on Asus Transformer?
Hi,

I just want to confirm with the previous post that you were able to connect to the internet via LAN using a USB to RJ-45 purchased from amazon. (Search for "USB 2.0 to RJ-45 Ethernet Adapter" on amazon.) Did you connect using the USB port on the dock or on the tablet itself? Thanks!
