Can anyone suggest / recommend a USB to Ethernet adapter for my (in design stage) Linux MCE core ?
I will be using a Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop (not sff) for the Core, and that only has one NIC (10/100/1000) which will be fine for the "inside" network.
I don't want to use up of the 3 (1 x PCIe, 2 x PCI) slots for a second NIC, and given the my home internet connection is the bottle neck to the outside world, I don't need Gig to the DSL router, 10 or 100 meg will do.
So any suggestions for a USB to Ethernet adpter that will work (out of the box pref) on the Gutsy install of Linux MCE ?
Thanks for your time.
We use these sometimes as the WAN side NIC in smaller Core's. WAN side you only really need 100Mbit;http://www.belkincables.co.uk/networking_256885011_B000062R4P_Belkin-USB-10100-Ethernet-Adapter
