USB Communication Device Class Ethernet device
cdce* at uhub?
driver provides support for USB Host-to-Host
(aka USB-to-USB) bridges based on the USB Communication Device Class (CDC) and
Ethernet subclass, including the following:
- Acer Labs USB 2.0 Data Link
- Dell Wireless 5530
- Dell Wireless 5540
- FRITZ!Box Fon ata 1020
- G.Mate YP3X00
- Motorola USBNET
- NetChip EthernetGadget
- Prolific PL-2501
- Sharp Zaurus
- Sony Ericsson K610i
- Sony Ericsson F3705g
- Zyxel P-971M
The USB bridge appears as a regular network interface on both
sides, transporting Ethernet frames. USB 1.x bridges support speeds of up to
12Mbps, and USB 2.0 speeds of up to 480Mbps. Packets are received and
transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.
cdce driver does not support different
media types or options. For more information on configuring this device, see
- cdce%d: extra ethernet descriptor
- There is more than one Ethernet descriptor.
- cdce%d: no data interface
- The data interface announced by the union descriptor cannot be found.
- cdce%d: no descriptor for interrupt endpoint %d
- cdce%d: interface alternate setting %d failed
- cdce%d: no descriptor for bulk endpoint %d
- cdce%d: could not find data bulk in/out
- For a manually added USB vendor/product, these errors indicate that the
bridge is not compatible with the driver.
- cdce%d: watchdog timeout
- A packet was queued for transmission and a transmit command was issued,
however the device failed to acknowledge the transmission before a timeout
- cdce%d: no memory for rx list -- packet dropped!
- Memory allocation through MGETHDR or MCLGET failed, the system is running
low on mbufs.
- cdce%d: abort/close rx/tx/interrupt pipe failed
- cdce%d: rx/tx list init failed
- cdce%d: open rx/tx/interrupt pipe failed
- cdce%d: usb error on rx/tx

Many USB devices notoriously fail to report their class and interfaces
correctly. Undetected products might work flawlessly when their vendor and
product IDs are added to the driver manually.
