hi,

ive had usb networking setup in other os's such as dsl and ebain but im using puppy right now, and am hoping to have some luck in that...

currently when i plug it in i get this in /var/log/messages

CODE
Jul  5 12:04:07 (none) user.info kernel: ohci_hcd 0000:00:0a.0: wakeup                                            
Jul  5 12:04:07 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 12        
Jul  5 12:04:07 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice  


and that is it, no usb0 interface . so is this kernel related, perhaps module or something else...

thankyou.

Looks like you need some kernel modules to be loaded

here is the data from my /var/log/messages

CODE
Jul  5 21:06:58 localhost usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
Jul  5 21:06:58 localhost usb 5-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Jul  5 21:06:58 localhost usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_ether
Jul  5 21:06:58 localhost usb0: register 'zaurus' at usb-0000:00:10.3-1, pseudo-MDLM (BLAN) device, f6:8d:d4:ba:1a:49
Jul  5 21:06:58 localhost usbcore: registered new interface driver zaurus


and the modules that are loaded
CODE
Module                  Size  Used by
zaurus                  4224  0
cdc_ether               4480  1 zaurus
usbnet                 13512  2 zaurus,cdc_ether


These are found in /lib/modules/2.6.21-gentoo/kernel/drivers/usb/net/

hope that helps

Stu
