    Question Pegasus USBtoEthernet adaptor not recognised

    Right, So I have 2 networking adaptors

    - Integrated SIS 191 ethernet (Not supported)
    - USB-to-Ethernet SMC2206 EZ Connect

    I have done a bit of research and seen that the USB-to-Ethernet adaptor appears to be Pegasus based, and its working on my xubuntu partition fine - so I issued "lsmod" to see if I could find the linux drivers that were running incase I could work out which chipset it was from there..

    moddy@ModBox:~$ lsmod
    Module                  Size  Used by
    ipv6                  264228  14

    mii                    13440  2 sis190,pegasus
    moddy@ModBox:~$ dmesg | grep pegasus

    [   31.237056] pegasus 1-2:1.0: update_eth_regs_async, status -22
    I then ran lsusb (verbose output [ pastebin - collaborative debugging tool ]) to get the device ID

    moddy@ModBox:~$ lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1bcf:0007 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. 
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0707:0201 Standard Microsystems Corp. EZ Connect USB Ethernet
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Now I know there is a PegasusUSBEthernet kext floating around - so I downloaded the package from sustworks and extracted the kext from it, installing it onto my iDeneb install via the Kext Helper application. After the re-boot it still wasn't found. So this time I installed it directly from the package that I downloaded from sustworks - still wasn't recognised!

    Now I was begining to suspect my own motherboard and its USB functions not being recognised, but my mouse is running fine (from USB) and I have switched ports too. I'm not even getting the "Link/Act" LED power on the adaptor.

    I began to suspect that perhaps it wasn't a pegasus based device, so I began doing a spot of research again and checked to see what drivers it ran in WindowsXP - it came up as an ADMtek chipset, which google once again told me was supported as Pegasus. I found this []Network Solution for Leopard - InsanelyMac Forum and this person states that although the system didn't work with the USBtoEthernet adaptor at first, it was atleast recognised in System Profiler. I havent even got that.

    I'm going to give editing the info.plist a go now, but I was wondering if anyone else had some experiance/tips to share?
    Cheers in advance!

    Sorry for the double post; But I've been doing a bit of tinkering and decided to boot into verbose mode to ensure the kext was being initialised..

    Turns out it wasnt; thats why its not finding the adaptor.

    Can't determine dependencies for com.dsumorok.driver.USBPegasusEthernet.
    Couldn't alloc class USBPegasusEthernet

    BEFORE this though, it seems to complain that it can't find a class, it scrolls up to fast for me to see but its directly before this error and has "IONetworking" in the name.

    I have posted a list of my extensions here [ pastebin - collaborative debugging tool ] - I do see a few IONetworking files in there. I'll try and reboot into iDeneb verbosely and find out specifically what file it is.

    Edit: Appears to be iokit.IONetworkingkit that is missing. I shall look for a kext
