  • Full 100MBps speed, works with Linux

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Great price.
    - Gets full 100Mbps speed. That's right, 12 MiB/s of raw transfer speed. Unlike the other ones, this is real USB 2.0.
    - Works perfectly with Linux using module mcs7830, which is in mainline kernel.
    - Fairly sturdy. I stressed it a little to see if it drops signal or anything when wiggling the wires. Nothing of the sort happened.
    - Works in promiscuous mode.

    Cons:

    Absolutely none!

    OtherThoughts:

    Here's the output of dmesg (MAC address masked out):
    [22803.962607] usb 2-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
    [22804.451012] mcs7830_async_cmd_callback() failed with -32

    [22804.558757] mcs7830_async_cmd_callback() failed with -32

    Bottomline:

    Definitely a must-have. You just never know when you'll need a 2nd Ethernet port.
