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..
I then ran lsusb (verbose output [ pastebin - collaborative debugging tool ]) to get the device ID

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!
