USB to Lan Ethernet adaptater 10/100

Postby neodragon12 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 4:06 am

Hello,
Does somebody has an idea how i can make the Ethernet running on the GV-21 ? I've tried 2 lan adaptaters, with SMSC LAN7500 chipset and RD9700 chipset. None of them works, but are seen mounted on 1.1-1 usb port (i saw them with an USB Host application)
Thanks for ur help

I haven't tried to do that yet, but apparently that's one of the bugs in their firmware, that they said would be fixed in the newer firmware update.
But, if you update to the newest firmware, you may find a lot of other problems.

However, all is no longer lost. csgabe and alicqin found an older version of the Firmware, so you can update it, try it out, and roll back to the oldest. I have just had a nightmare trying to find oldest firmware, and couldn't.
There are quite a few bugs in the firmwares for these sticks, but overall i really like them. I prefer them over the MK808 and the UG802. - Although they have much larger communities and have a lot more projects. Hopefully the GV-21/T21 will take off too.. Then it would be the end of all problems.

You could have a try. But it didn't work in my GV21 with the oldest firmware for Ethernet adapter.If the company relase the kernal source, I think it will be very easy. The version of the kernal is :
Linux localhost 3.0.0 #130111 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 11 16:18:35 CST 2013 armv71 GUN/Linux
But I can't find the source code, it is different with MK808.

You could try with AX88772A or AX88772B chipset based usb-lan adapters, because the kernel has been compiled with these drivers.
I bought one based on AX88772A from here:

Hello, thanks for ur answers.
I found something that can probably be the kernel source 3.0 here: https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common/+/android-3.0
There we can find tones of drivers, i found this one for my smsc LAN7500 device https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common/+/android-3.0/drivers/net --> smsc75xx.c and smsc75xx.h. However no source code for the qf9700 driver (RD9700), i found the original here http://www.elite.uk.com/mike/qf9700/
If somebody can do something with all of that, i'll REALLY appreciate :) ... and finally think that an android god exists ^^

Hi,
I used DM9621A working to ZW608. You can try it.
