Chances are that your current distro does something silly, like
bringing up network interfaces before udev is finished.
Try (after having plugged the USB network adapter in *after*
P.S.: If you want help spare us the attitude. It's impossible
to help you w/o knowledge of what your set-up is. I also don't
know how many people would be running pendrive linux (I've
never even heard of it before today) with a network adapter
whose make and model they don't know ...
"Doctor, I'm sick!"
"What are your symptoms?"
"Spare me the questions, just fix me!"
It doesn't work like that.
