I have a 5600 and I'm running gentoo. On both my laptop (PII 233) and my desktop (AMD 1.2Ghz) running kernel 126.96.36.199. running lsusb showss that the device is connected but I don't have usb0 appearing. I am not getting any errors in /var/log/messages. What could be wrong?
If you don't have hotplug set up, you might have to do a "modprobe usbnet". Also, you might have to bring the appropriate network interface up ("usb0", I think)...
I have usbnet modprobed and when I do ifconfig usb0 up (given ip and all) I get device not found.
You need a script in /etc/sysconfig(or equivilent)/network-scripts called ifcfg-usb0
This should contain
What I do is:-modprobe usbnet
Then switch on Z with interface cable connected and wait for hourglass on Z to go
then ifconfig usb0 192.168.129.201 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
this shows all network devices and you should have usb0
thenping -c 4 192.168.129.201
to check connection
I have this in a script, my hotplug setup didnt seem to work so I stick with this and have no problems.
I have another script which just unloads the usbnet module and does an ifconfig -a to show that usb0 has gone.
I am using MDK10, but apart from slightly different locations of files and the name of the module (usbdnet on some) this should work on all systems
