Full 100MBps speed, works with Linux – USB 2.0 10/100Mbps RJ45 LAN Ethernet Network Adapter Dongle Reviews

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!
Other:
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 [22804.451265] usb 2-3: applying rev.C fixup [22804.470159] usb 2-3: applying rev.C fixup [22804.491893] MOSCHIP usb-ethernet driver 2-3:1.0: eth0: register 'MOSCHIP usb-ethernet driver' at usb-0000:00:1d.7-3, MOSCHIP 7830/7730 usb-NET adapter, xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx [22804.492752] usbcore: registered new interface driver MOSCHIP usb-ethernet driver [22804.553702] udev[5879]: renamed network interface eth0 to eth5 [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.
