Review of Linux Compatibility

The USB network adapter Edimax EU-4208 provides an 100Mbps Ethernet port for USB 2.0. The adapter has the USB ID 0b95:772b:

ID 0b95:772b ASIX Electronics Corp. AX88772B

and is automatically supported under Linux by the asix kernel module. This module is automatically loaded, when the adapter is plugged in:

asix 2-1:1.0: eth1: register 'asix' at usb-sw-ehci-1, ASIX AX88772 USB 2.0 Ethernet, 00:11:22:33:44:55
usbcore: registered new interface driver asix

The driver creates an additional Ethernet device (eth1 in the example given above), which can be used to establish a network connection.

Additionally, Edimax provides a Linux driver for download (e.g. for older kernel versions) at, which can be compiled and installed.
