I'm gonna try messing with dbus again, I don't remember what I did last time, but I was probably half asleep
I use dummyiap when using usbnet (works like a charm with my linux box - no need for an ethernet-adaptor, simply connect the usb cable - but has issues with WinXP).

Wow, I can't believe I've never come across that

I'm guessing that will do the trick!

Big fat thank you.. will report back in a few if it works for me.

Edit: it's official, rps is my hero.. still can't believe I missed the dummy setting

So I have the Trendnet TU-ET100C (one of the listed RT8150 adapters) plugged in, but it doesnt seem to work. When I do an ifconfig -a, I dont see any USB or Eth interface listed. only loopback and wlan0. lsmod also doesnt seem to show g_ether.ko which I guess I would have expected.

Is there some to check if the driver is loaded? Is there some step I am missing?

You guys mentioned running udhcpd, but maybe I dont have this installed, as it doesnt seem to be recognized? Where can I get udhcpd?

Actually thereś no link light on the router, so I am pretty sure the driver is not being loaded on the N800 (OS2008). How can I start the driver?

Have you enabled host mode?

Yes, and I am using a powered hub. A usb flash dongle works fine...

Open up a terminal, type, as root: cat /proc/kmsg

plug in your adapter, any messages?

try connecting without the hub too.

Thanks. I can see that the usb ethernet adapter is being reported as an ADMtek device...

I guess I still need to keep looking for a RT8150 device.

Don't give up yet!

Grab http://maemobox.org/dblank/usbnet.tgz

Extract and load pegasus driver
tar -xzf usbnet.tgz pegasus.ko
insmod pegasus.ko

then cat /proc/kmsg again and plug in your card.

Awesome! It works!

I just had to run udhcpc in xterm after plugging the adapter in. Is there a way to automate this, or have a script executed from a button in the UI?
