They both work but only for a minute or so. So the driver is probably broken. Tried the manufacturer's downloaded driver too, didn't work either. Would rather not struggle any more trying to fix this junk.
Glad you mentioned pfsense too, the purpose of this device is to make a vpn gateway with a firewall and security features.
Can you just stick one of the pfsense compatible ones onto a pc with a debian derivative and see what happens?
No, that is not the model I was talking about, althuogh I can see the merits of that model, namily the flexible connection instead of a stiff object sticking out wanting to break the USB port. This is the one that bought Sabrent
I have an intellinet network solutions ethernet-to-usb adapter that doesn't seem to work with ubuntu 12.04, is there anything I can do to make it work (my laptop does not come with in-built ethernet connection)?
By the way - just because something might say its gigabit... chances are it just advertises that it is via the link speeds, but in actuality the line rates are probably in the range of a 10/100 USB adapter. If you want to say you have a gigabit adapter then its your choice, but I would go for a solid adapter vs. a no-name.
