in the package that they sold. One of the things to watch for is that
some of the common mfgrs (Linksys for one) have been known to simply
switch the entire chipset in the USB ethernet adapter with no product
re-marking or re-labeling.
SlugOS will be able to handle any USB devices supported by the stock
Linksys kernel up to 2.6.18 or so. If you are running Unslung, you are
extremely limited. If you can build the most recent SlugOS releases
yourself, you can probably use any adapter supported by Linux. So it
would be helpful to know a little bit of information, such as what
firmware you intend to use...
