Nice item but no OS X support – USB 10/100 RJ45 Ethernet Network Adapter Dongle Reviews

Works with Windows, Linux, but not OS X. Does what it's supposed to. 10baseT is good enough for internet access and troubleshooting bad NICs and other network problems
No OS X support. This adapter uses the Davicom 9601 chipset which doesn't have an OS X driver.
I've been tempted to write one but I'd need help from someone with experience in OS X kernel extension drivers. The source code for the linux drivers is available on the Davicom website and several other open source USB OS X ethernet card drivers exist so someone else could potentially write one nudge nudge hint hint.
Good product, just was hoping for OS X support.
