1 Excerpt from Stroller:
3 > My experience has been the opposite, that even the cheapest USB network adaptors have worked.
5 > Maybe I've just been lucky and this is not the norm, but from what I've seen "USB network adapters don't work with Linux" is the sort of thing that might have been true 10 years ago.
7 Are you talking about an adapter that plugs into a USB port at one end and has an Ethernet port at the other end?
9 Or are you talking about a cable or DSL router with a USB connection?
11 I have a cable modem and router, the router can connect by either Ethernet or USB; I always used the Ethernet and never used the USB.
13 But I had a DSL modem/router before the switch to cable, had both USB and Ethernet connectors. I failed to get the USB network connection to work, though the Ethernet worked OK.
