Re: Problem following the EthernetAdapter instructions on the wiki
I've added a few notes to the wiki page - hope that sorts you out.
Unfortunately my own dilema still remains as it appears there is a
problem adding the D-link DUB-E100 Usb ethernet adaptor rev B1 which
uses a different chipset.
Can someone update the wiki page to list some adaptors which are
still being manufactured and they know to work?
