Useless on Linux – Arkview USB 2.0 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Cheap device and working OK for Windooze users.
Cons:
Advertized as a device with Linux support. But Linux drivers are not working correctly. Not from CD, not these from the Asix site. Device will be recognized and link shows like up but no usable communication can be made. Tried different distros, cables, computers etc. Seems to be a common problem if you google it a little bit. No solution found yet. This makes it piece of useless plastic for me.
Other:
Linux drivers and support may improve in the feature though. At least we can hope it..
Bottomline:
Of cource nothing to do with Gbit due USB 2.0, not Linux friendly.
