Unfortunately can't post in DEV forums as i never wrote in this site.
I've been working on enabling USB to Ethernet dongle on our Transformers as i didn't see any successful attempt in this area.
For my experiments I use USB to ethernet dongle from DealExtreme: (Link deleted. Can't post links. Search for "SKU 34691")
This dongle is based on ASIX AX88772B chipset.
Linux Driver was downloaded from: (Link deleted. Can't post links. Google for the driver v4.1.0)
I've compiled the driver with latest Clemsyn kernel downloaded from his git: (Link deleted. Can't post links)
The driver compiles without errors to asix.ko file (attached)
After insmoding the driver into the kernel i connected the dongle to USB port on the keyboard dock and connected RJ45 cable to it from my router. The blue led turned on and started to blink!! (Never happened before!).
Encouraged by this development i've executed the following sequence in terminal:
ifconfig eth0 10.0.1.17 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.0.1.255 route add default gw 10.0.1.1
Started pinging computers in my local LAN - everything WORKED!
Access to router web interface via browser - WORKS!
Here the happy story ends.
I couldn't manage to ping any IP addresses outside the local network.
I think i'm very close to make this work.
Any help will be appreciated.
Need to add DNS configuration (i set to Google DNS server):
setprop net.dns1 188.8.131.52
USB to Ethernet dongle fully works on Asus Transformer
Not all applications work with wired connection.
Browser and Gmail work, but Skype does not.
Need to investigate further.
