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.

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.
Link to OTA update from ASUS server

Default 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!
