I removed the kernel extension and now after I reinstall and reboot it doesn't show up at all...
ok, so now I loaded the extension manually (not sure if that was needed but if I try it again it says it's already loaded, so it wasn't loaded automatically, but maybe it just loads it on first use...) and got the interface to appear by changing the priority order of interfaces in the port config list (it just appeared when I moved one of the others), then configured it, and now it's back in the status list after connecting the z (but the currently unused interfaces aren't in that list -- petty sure they were originally)
so ifconifg on the mac says...
en2: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet6 fe80::3630:30ff:fe30:3000%en2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x8
inet 192.168.129.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.129.255
media: autoselect (10baseT/UTP <full-duplex>) status: active
supported media: none autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex>
...when the z is connected and nothing about en2 otherwise
the z shows usbd0 up on 192.168.129.201 regardless but with a few more packets after connection
mac console has...
Aug 9 22:49:17 sumi mDNSResponder: Repeated transitions for interface en2 (192.168.129.1); delaying packets by 5 seconds
z dmesg has...
net_recv_urb: TOO LARGE urb->actual_length: 63 maxtransfer: 0
net_recv_urb: TOO LARGE urb->actual_length: 127 maxtransfer: 0
NETDEV WATCHDOG: usbd0: transmit timed out
usbd_device_bh: usbd_device_bh: no urb_sent function
netproto_recv: not registered: state: 0
netproto_recv: not up net_dev->flags: 1002
...then lots more watchdog timeouts
same problems pinging as before
I no longer have access to the linux box I used to use for this, so not sure if the z messages are normal, and don't have another ethernet-over-usb device to connect to the mac to see if that message is typical either, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know
