Description of problem:
I have a netgear USB ethernet adapter which uses the kaweth usb kernel module.
It works great under linux, but redhat's network configuration utility doesn't
list USB ethernet adapters in the device menu when trying to add a new piece of
hardware. I can setup networking by hand, but it would be nice to be able to
use the wizard tool to configure USB ethernet adaptors in a smart easy to use way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Add new device
4.There is no obvious choice for USB ethernet device....this is somewhat
confusing. Technically I don't need to add a hardware item for the usb device
in neat. the module is autoloaded when you plugin the usb adapter...but for
sanity's sake i think it makes sense to atleast offer a "USB ethernet adapter"
in the list of device options so the USB device will show up in the hardware
list inside neat.
Expected Results: I would expect to see a device listing in the pull down menu
that covers the supported USB ethernet kernel drivers (kaweth,pegasus, etc...)
so that you could add the USB device in the hardware section of the neat wizard.
