Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52480
USB network devices not selectable
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
When configuring network devices, the internal (PCI/ISA) network cards can be selected but USB devices are not listed; one has to modify /etc/modules.conf manually
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up to 0.7.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start neat either as normal or root user
2. Add/Modify eth0 device
USB network devices not present in the list of supported devices
USB network devices present
This should really be fixed.
USB nics are currently broken in the kernel, which makes it somewhat hard to add...

USB network devices still not selectable. Since the USB network devices themselves work
fine with Skipjack's stock kernel, please consider fixing this. Right now RCN seems a bit
broken after I added an arbitrary network card then manually change the entry in
/etc/modules.conf to 'alias eth0 kaweth'.
should work in redhat-config-network-0.9.21-1
Tested with 1.0.0-1 and things are looking pretty good. The Netgear EA101
worked quite well.
