just tried the 2.3 kernel for the first time (I needed usb/ethernet
for my new i-opener) ;-)
it does work! very cool..
but I'm not sure why the linksys adapter doesn't show LINK on its led.
the switch I connect the cat5 cable to shows link and I can ssh (etc)
to and from the box just fine. is the link light at all software
controlled? sounds unlikely but I'm not sure why a brand new usb
adapter would have a broken link led.
(as an aside, I was very surprised how easy it was to get usb/ethernet
working with this very new [to me] device; I know the 2.2 kernel and
its net.devices pretty well; and I was able to get the usb/ether
device up and working without reading ANY docs - just running 'make
menuconfig', taking good guesses at things, then make bzdisk and
reboot. wow. that was friggin' EASY <g> )
