I have read in an old thread to run "dmesg" to see if the USB has been connected.

Here're the last few lines:

"usb 5-1: new ful speed USB device number 5 using uhci_hcd
...
usb 5-1: Product: USB 2.0 10/100M Ethernet Adapter."

But when i do a ifconfig, it only shows eth0 and local. What should I do?

    Absolutely no idea. :(

    Do you not have any spare PCI/PCIe slots? Or, can you change a PCI/PCIe NIC for a multi-port NIC?

    *Faint*

    Okay... from where can I get a list of the supported usb to eth devices? I am rather busy right now and would rather buy an acceptable usb to eth device.

    Thank you.

    If you are not much into Linux you may be in for a bit of a ride now. The adaptor you've bought does not appear to be the best.

    From searching around you need the dm9601 driver, but the one in ClearOS does not cover your USB IDs so you're going to need to compile your own but the sources are going to need modifying first. Have a look at http://tech.firdooze.com/2011/11/16/how-to-instal-davicom-9601-drivers-dm9601-on-linux/this thread[/url" target="_blank">. Your device is the same as his example. Sources are available [url=http://www.davicom.com.tw/page1.aspx?no=209814]here. You will need to install some compiler tools and probably the kernel-headers. See here for probably the easiest way of installing the development environment without searching down individual packages and I think it installs the kernel-headers for you.

    Before you start installing the above if "uname -r" says "kernel.x86_64 2.6.32-431.1.2.v6", please reboot to make the latest kernel effective.

    There are basic instructions in the driver tarball, but instead of following all of B-2, for line 3 create a file /etc/modprobe.d/anything.conf and put the alias line in there. Lines 4 - 6 can be skipped and then, with luck, it will work. If not try unplugging and reinserting the NIC. Make sure you use an ethX different from what you already have so, probably, eth1 - and you may need to change it. We may also have to try playing with the ifcfg-ethX files. Similarly in B-1 you should not need lines 3 and 4.

    The output includes the USB -> eth device.
