Help me please! (usb ethernet adapter )

By the_biochemist ·
Sorry if this is a beginners question.... but
Ive just installed redhat 8 and have got most of my components working
bar a usb to fast ethernet adapter by a generic manafacturer with no
fcc number or markings to work out the manafacturer to source a
driver.

I was thinking... as it is a generic pegasusII based device then the
standard pegasus driver should be able to run it. however it is not
recognised by any drivers on my linux system.

can i get the manafacturer number using 'dmesg' and edit into the
source of the driver?

if so how would i go about it?

many thanks

Is there anything telling you who made it?? If not you make but up the you know what creek. Even though a device may share a common connection it's internal workings may vary radically from another similar device. Another thing you could try is hooking it up to a new windows machine and see if windows identifies it. The reason being that at least it would probably give you some info that you could use to find the linux driver. One last thing, I have worked with linux some and have not hadvery good success with usb devices working with it.

Sorry for the delay in accepting this, after finding as much info as i could from hooking it up to windows i mailed RehHat's techies and they were really helpful.... Unfortunately it seems as if your last comment about Linux and USB not really mix too well was very true!

but that just gives me an excuse to go and buy a new laptop doesnt it LOL.

Thanks Matthew Longmate
