New USB ethernet adapter
 
I got a new USB ethernet adapter from ebay, the ad said RealTek chipset,
so I thought I would chance it.


Well, my 5.2 system does not recognize the USB device. At all. What do
I need to do?


I checked the driver CD and the XP driver directory's .inf file has the
following:


; ASIX AX88172 USB2 to Fast Ethernet Adapter *
; *
; Copyright 2001-2003, ASIX Electronics Corporation *
;
; Version: 2.0.0.5
;************************************************* ***************

[Version]
Signature = "$Windows NT$"
CatalogFile = ax88172xp.cat
Class = Net
ClassGUID = {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Provider = %ASIX%
;LayoutFile = layout.inf
DriverVer = 05/22/2003, 2.0.0.5

[Manufacturer]
%ASIX% = USB

[ControlFlags]
ExcludeFromSelect = USBVID_0B95&PID_1720

[USB]
%AX88172.DeviceDesc% = AX88172.Ndi,USBVID_0B95&PID_1720

;************************************************* ***************
; Win98 main sections *
;************************************************* ***************
[AX88172.Ndi]
AddReg = AX88172.Reg, AX88172.Con.Reg ;, AX88172.Params
DeviceID = USBVID_0B95&PID_1720


How can I tell if this is a RealTek chipset and more importantly,
getting it working?

VID_0B95 is...

0b95 ASIX Electronics Corp.
1720 10/100 Ethernet
1780 AX88178
7720 AX88772


so its likely thats built with an ASIC from ASIX Electronics Corp.
http://www.asix.com.tw/

their download apge says the AX88172 is already supported by the Linux
2.6.x USBNET.C driver ?

they have 2.6.14+ sources for some of their newer chips

So what do I have to do to get this recognized by kudzu and get it used
by the system?
