Delock USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapter and HG20F9-based adapters added.
Davicom DM9600 and QF9700-based devices added. Please give it a shot and report back your findings in this tread. Thanks.


It's me again ... I've updated the USB2Ethernet-Helper to a new version. I added support for dongles containing a QF9700 chip. Please note, I don't own such a device and thus can't testify if it is working correctly or not. Give it a shot and report your findings back to this thread so that I have a chance to fix it.
The best way to assist is to post a logcat from your Mediapad. Start an "adb logcat" over Wifi, connect your OTG cable and the dongle, and then start my App. Record the output in case you encounter errors.
For the initiated :cowboy: : Please also provide a dmesg log.

Thanks, DFahren



Hi all,

I developled a small App that can be used to connect our Mediapad to an Ethernet-based Internet router.
You can find it as attachment to this post.

Why does one need such an App? Here's the case...

Picture yourself in a hotel. You have got your Mediapad with you and would like to surf a bit in the Internet. The hotel does not offer wireless lan, but nevertheless has Ethernet-based Internet access. Since Ethernet-to-Wifi converters are kinda expensive, you think of getting yourself a USB-to-Ethernet adapter dongle to help you out of this misery. However, our Mediapad does not support Internet-by-Ethernet-adapter right out of the box....

You need to know a few things about this App.

  1. In order to run this App successfully you need to have the 'su' binary installed on your Mediapad, i.e., your pad needs to be rooted. The App will fail if you don't have a rooted phone.

  2. You need to have a USB-to-Ethernet adapter such as the "Edimax USB2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter" and a USB-to-Go cable. Currently, my App only supports adapters that have the following chips from Asix built in: AX88772, AX88760, AX8817. If you have an adapter that uses a different controller chip, please contact me via this forum or write a PN. Linux has drivers for almost every controller chip and I might be able to compile the appropriate one for you and bundle it with this App.

  3. You need to have a router that has DHCP enabled. This App does everything automatically. It won't work with IP addresses that need to be statically assigned.

  4. You must have a non-modified Linux kernel on your Mediapad! That is, a 3.0.8 kernel that comes with the original Android ICS. If you have a modified kernel such as bart543's one, then this App won't work for you. May be in the future I gonna support those modified kernels.

  5. Once you managed to install this App, you can surf the Internet using one of your favorite browsers.
    Although Android has rudimentary support for Ethernet devices built in (as far as I can tell from looking at the source code), Android ICS on our Mediapad only supports Wifi and Mobile data. What this means to you is some Apps from the Market that need Internet access may work, unfortunately many Apps don't seem to work (e.g. TuneIn Radio, Skype, etc.). If your favorite App(s) do(es) not work, I'm afraid I can't help you. Blame it on Android. Usually all Apps that access networking functions right away without querying Android which network types may be available and up should run correctly.

How to install this app
  • Download this App to your PC.
  • Type
    Code:
    adb install USB2Ethernet-Helper.apk

What if I run into errors?
  • The UI will show a short message as to why a specific step fails. Post this message in this thread.
  • Install "TerminalIDE" from the Market, if you don't have yet.
  • Open a shell and type
    Code:
    logcat
  • Post the logcat output in this thread. Maybe I can help.

Please be aware that I will do my best to help you, but I'm not the quickest to respond because I have a lot other commitments to follow.

That's it. Have fun!

Cheers, Dfahren

Hi

I am trying to connect a HUAWEI MediaPad 7 (ICS 4.0.3 kernal 3.0.8) to wired internet (ADSL) connection through a USB ethernet adapter (found on ebay)

OTG cable & above adapter yet to arrive and mean time I saw this post :cowboy:

Do I need any driver for this or will your workaround could solve it?

I'm not sure about the chip of this USB Ethernet adapter, I bought it since they mentioned its supporting Android

I don't want to use Wifi and very eager on fixing this with ADSL. I have a router and no need to dial to connect when I'm connecting from PC password is saved in the router.

Thanks
Indunil

Hi Indunil,

ok, your kernel specs seem to fit to my app.

But with your adapter I doubt that it will work with my app right out of the box. If you do not know the transceiver chip in the adapter, then chances are that it might be the wrong one. Try my app and if it works, cool, if not, please come back and I might find a solution to your problem.

Please be aware that a driver for adapters containing a AX88772 chip is included in the app. This is currently the only driver in the app.

Recall, you need to have an SU binary installed on your Mediapad!

Best wishes,

DFahren

Hi

Thank you very much for the reply, I just wrote to the ebay seller asking about the chip in that adapter. BTW to install SU binary I have to root the media pad is it? I'm an extreme new b to android but was able to root n install cyanogen mod 7 on a Samsung galaxy pop previously but that was following a chrystal clear user guide from web. But when it comes to Huawei media pad I'm not sure any accurate and valid info available... If you know a good source pls help!

Thanks again for coming forward with this idea! I'm actually nervous to use WiFi at home because of the baby :cyclops:

Hi Fausto,

could you please give the exact error message the app outputs on the screen. (The one that is written in small print).

Hi living_legend,

hmmm, you need to browse a bit the forums on how to root the Mediapad. I think there are some pretty good posts out there.
Of course, you are right. Installing SU means rooting the pad.

Indeed the less electromagnetic waves you produce around human beings the better. I second your attitude.

Rooting process look very tedious (sigh!) & I'm so confused! (no knowledge about Linux) also No info in cyanogenmod.org regarding rooting this particular device :(
I received the adapter today and the chip seems to be AX88772A. When I plug everything nothing pop up or no activity happen in the device :(

Is there any way to write a patch like the Ethernet patch used in Android-x86 4.0.4 ICS RC2 devices. Currently my device got only Bluetooth, wifi and mobile network

no Ethernet though :silly:

If rooting is so tedious, you could flash a pre-rooted image, such as HWMOD's boot.img. Look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1725345&highlight=root
Here someone presents a rooted image, too: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1544855&highlight=root

Good to hear you've finally got your adapter that day. This is perfectly normal that once you plug in the adapter together with the USB-OTG cable into the Mediapad nothing happens. You have to use my app to see the lights flickering.

Just try it once again and if anything goes wrong, note down the error message.

Best wishes,
DFahren

Hi,
I found this thread of yours and thought it could help me getting my USB-to-Ethernet Adapter to work on Android 4.0.4.
My device is a cheap rootet X7GS tablet, the Adapter is a UA0025C from LogiLink.
When running your App it tells me on the second step:
"Both host adapter and Usb-to-Ethernet adapter not found".

Usb-Host is definately supported (connected an SD-Card-Reader for testing) and the driver seems to be related to asix. It's a MosChip MCS7830, I have the linux driver on a disc here. I'll try to create this logcat you mentioned and post it here later. How can it be that the host adapter is not found?

Many thx in advance,
Technose

Edit: This should be the device (I bought it in germany where it is distributed by LogiLink):
MCS7830 -- USB 2.0 to 10/100M Fast Ethernet Controller from Asix

It can be found on the asix website, I can't post the link though due to Forum restrictions.
Thx again

Hi Technose02,

thanks for the log. It may be that Mediapads differ from one another in certain parts of the hardware, I'm not sure about this. It's irritating that my app tells you it didn't find the host adapter. This really puzzles me since I always thought USB host adapters would be the same on all Mediapads. That said, the log does not show too much information, unfortunately....
Anyway, do you know how to do "adb shell" but not via USB cable but via WIFI? If so, could you please plug in your OTG cable and your adapter in the USB port and type on the command line in the shell "cat /d/usb/devices" and after that "dmesg" (of that the last, say, 20 lines) and post the output here? Would be great!

In fact, MosChip has been acquired by Asix some time ago. However, I'm unsure whether Asix develops MosChip Linux drivers any further. Logilink provides its own drivers for your adapter, but they seem to be 2.4 or 2.6 drivers - really old stuff. The may need tweaks to get them running on Linux 3.0.

Ok, first things first, would be great if you provided the other logs as well.

Cheers,
DFahren

Does this mean, that my USB-Port is not 2.0? To be honest, it is not promoted to have USB 2.0, just "micro USB with Host Mode". Now who would expect a tablet designed for running Android 4 to ship with a slow USB Connector these days...
Well but even if this was the case and even if it would be a very slow lan-connection: the USB-Ethernetcontroller claims to be complaint to USB 2.0/1.1 Standard.

Thx again for your help!!

Hi Technose02,

ok, now I see why I thought it must be a non-standard configuration. I think you are operating a Realtek USB Wifi dongle and your Usb-Ethernet dongle together plugged in an external hub. This configuration differs from mine since I simply have an OTG cable plugged into the USB port and my Edimax Usb-to-Ethernet dongle.

In fact the line that shows, that this configuration doesn't currently work is
Code:
<6>[   73.157651] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device number 2 using dwc_otg
<3>[   73.973286] usb 1-1: device v9710 p7830 is not supported
Ok, I see the problem, but I think I can solve it. Please stay tuned, it's going to take a little while. :cool:

So long,
DFahren


Hi and thanks a lot for your reply.

I managed to get the adb connection over wifi and here you go:


result of cat /d/usb/devices:
Code:
 ...


Result of dmesg (my apologies if it's too large), I called dmesg after plugging in the USB-Ethernet-Controller and trying to connect to it via your app:
Code:
 ...

Thanks a lot! I flashed OsiMod and so far its working fine appart from few glitches in battery progress indicator.

And your app is working perfectly with the adapter I purchased through ebay....! Means this app works with ASIx chips ?

You can place the app in google play cz it really works :)

It's me again.

I managed to compile a driver suitable for your dongle. I used the most recent mcs7830 driver source code I could find on kernel.org, compiled it for Android and did test it on my Mediapad. Testing, howver, is limited to checking if it can be "insmod-ed". It can.
Then I registered your otg host adapter with my app. Altogether you will find my updated app in the first post. Download it, give it a shot and if there are still problems, you can also write me a PN with the logs you formerly provided. There is no need to clutter this thread with log files any further.

Yep, I can tell you my app works with my Edimax adapter like it should. Please notice, you need to read my first post carefully. :D I wrote not each and every app that uses networking will work with an ethernet adapter. This is not due to my app being uncapable, but Android 4.0 not having full ethernet support. So there are some networking apps that work, some (perhaps most) don't. The browser, though, works like a charm.
That's why I don't want to put it in the play store, since it has too many drawbacks and there are other (most notably Asus) Android portings that have full ethernet integration right out of the box.

Cheers,
DFahren


Thanks a lot! I flashed OsiMod and so far its working fine appart from few glitches in battery progress indicator.

And your app is working perfectly with the adapter I purchased through ebay....! Means this app works with ASIx chips ?

yes true, browser works like a miracle

Skype, playstore downloads (searching ok), google talk won't work any alternative as you may know for video calling

Hmm, no, unfortunately not. I think you need to try potential video calling apps yourself.
Good to know my app now works for you, sounds very good. May be, once I finde lots of time, I do an integration of my app in Android so that you don't need any app and can activate ethernet support right from Settings menu ...

Cheers,
DFahren

DFahren,

As You have environment up and running, would You be so kind to compile module for D-Link DUB-E100 H/W Rev. C1 ?
It is AX88772B, but with 2001:1a02 ID's.

I hope DUB_E100_Linux_v420.zip along with

@skleroz: Might well be, that this diff will do the trick. Stay tuned a bit longer. I gonna give it a shot next year. This year my time left is a little too short to get a new driver compiled for my App.

Wish all of you an incredible New Year!!

    Delock USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapter and HG20F9-based adapters added.
    Davicom DM9600 and QF9700-based devices added. Please give it a shot and report back your findings in this tread. Thanks.


    It's me again ... I've updated the USB2Ethernet-Helper to a new version. I added support for dongles containing a QF9700 chip. Please note, I don't own such a device and thus can't testify if it is working correctly or not. Give it a shot and report your findings back to this thread so that I have a chance to fix it.
    The best way to assist is to post a logcat from your Mediapad. Start an "adb logcat" over Wifi, connect your OTG cable and the dongle, and then start my App. Record the output in case you encounter errors.
    For the initiated :cowboy: : Please also provide a dmesg log.

    Thanks, DFahren



    Hi all,

    I developled a small App that can be used to connect our Mediapad to an Ethernet-based Internet router.
    You can find it as attachment to this post.

    Why does one need such an App? Here's the case...

    Picture yourself in a hotel. You have got your Mediapad with you and would like to surf a bit in the Internet. The hotel does not offer wireless lan, but nevertheless has Ethernet-based Internet access. Since Ethernet-to-Wifi converters are kinda expensive, you think of getting yourself a USB-to-Ethernet adapter dongle to help you out of this misery. However, our Mediapad does not support Internet-by-Ethernet-adapter right out of the box....

    You need to know a few things about this App.

    1. In order to run this App successfully you need to have the 'su' binary installed on your Mediapad, i.e., your pad needs to be rooted. The App will fail if you don't have a rooted phone.

    2. You need to have a USB-to-Ethernet adapter such as the "Edimax USB2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter" and a USB-to-Go cable. Currently, my App only supports adapters that have the following chips from Asix built in: AX88772, AX88760, AX8817. If you have an adapter that uses a different controller chip, please contact me via this forum or write a PN. Linux has drivers for almost every controller chip and I might be able to compile the appropriate one for you and bundle it with this App.

    3. You need to have a router that has DHCP enabled. This App does everything automatically. It won't work with IP addresses that need to be statically assigned.

    4. You must have a non-modified Linux kernel on your Mediapad! That is, a 3.0.8 kernel that comes with the original Android ICS. If you have a modified kernel such as bart543's one, then this App won't work for you. May be in the future I gonna support those modified kernels.

    5. Once you managed to install this App, you can surf the Internet using one of your favorite browsers.
      Although Android has rudimentary support for Ethernet devices built in (as far as I can tell from looking at the source code), Android ICS on our Mediapad only supports Wifi and Mobile data. What this means to you is some Apps from the Market that need Internet access may work, unfortunately many Apps don't seem to work (e.g. TuneIn Radio, Skype, etc.). If your favorite App(s) do(es) not work, I'm afraid I can't help you. Blame it on Android. Usually all Apps that access networking functions right away without querying Android which network types may be available and up should run correctly.

    How to install this app
    • Download this App to your PC.
    • Type
      Code:
      adb install USB2Ethernet-Helper.apk

    What if I run into errors?
    • The UI will show a short message as to why a specific step fails. Post this message in this thread.
    • Install "TerminalIDE" from the Market, if you don't have yet.
    • Open a shell and type
      Code:
      logcat
    • Post the logcat output in this thread. Maybe I can help.

    Please be aware that I will do my best to help you, but I'm not the quickest to respond because I have a lot other commitments to follow.

    That's it. Have fun!

    Cheers, Dfahren

    Hi Indunil,

    ok, your kernel specs seem to fit to my app.

    But with your adapter I doubt that it will work with my app right out of the box. If you do not know the transceiver chip in the adapter, then chances are that it might be the wrong one. Try my app and if it works, cool, if not, please come back and I might find a solution to your problem.

    Please be aware that a driver for adapters containing a AX88772 chip is included in the app. This is currently the only driver in the app.

    Recall, you need to have an SU binary installed on your Mediapad!

    Best wishes,

    DFahren


    Hi

    I am trying to connect a HUAWEI MediaPad 7 (ICS 4.0.3 kernal 3.0.8) to wired internet (ADSL) connection through a USB ethernet adapter (found on ebay)

    OTG cable & above adapter yet to arrive and mean time I saw this post :cowboy:

    Do I need any driver for this or will your workaround could solve it?

    I'm not sure about the chip of this USB Ethernet adapter, I bought it since they mentioned its supporting Android

    I don't want to use Wifi and very eager on fixing this with ADSL. I have a router and no need to dial to connect when I'm connecting from PC password is saved in the router.

    Thanks

    Hi living_legend,

    hmmm, you need to browse a bit the forums on how to root the Mediapad. I think there are some pretty good posts out there.
    Of course, you are right. Installing SU means rooting the pad.

    Indeed the less electromagnetic waves you produce around human beings the better. I second your attitude.


    Hi

    Thank you very much for the reply, I just wrote to the ebay seller asking about the chip in that adapter. BTW to install SU binary I have to root the media pad is it? I'm an extreme new b to android but was able to root n install cyanogen mod 7 on a Samsung galaxy pop previously but that was following a chrystal clear user guide from web. But when it comes to Huawei media pad I'm not sure any accurate and valid info available... If you know a good source pls help!

    Thanks again for coming forward with this idea! I'm actually nervous to use WiFi at home because of the baby :cyclops:

    @CheeKeong and Vaja: I updated the first post with a fresh version of my app. Try it out on your own and report back here.
    CheeKeong, you experimented with my drivers. I don't know whether or not my app will behave correctly on your Mediapad. I think, in order to come to a clean state, you should reboot your Mediapad and after that install and start the new app.

    Yes you are right. Browser works, App store does not as do some other apps. Skype does not work also, that's the saddest truth, but I can't help it. This is due to Android's internals which I absolutely don't feel like fiddling with ....
    That said, I have to ask you frankly: Did anybody read completely my first post?? :crying:

    Happy surfing using your adapter,
    DFahren


    Hello DFahren,

    Just to update - I managed to get internet connection through my company Ethernet point which is using DHCP. However, the connection is only limited through browsers but not to Play Store and other Emails account.

    Hi Pawan,

    that seems to be a Smart TV Stick based on Android. Hmmm, looks like an interesting device. What a pity I don't own a MK808 and I don't have kernel sources for it either. So I cannot help you. First of all, you need to check if compiling a driver and installing it suffices or if you need to fix more than that.

    Best wishes in your endeavor!

    DFahren


    Hi,

    Was anyone able to to compile the driver for HG20F9 for MK808 to an APK file?
