The following is a discussion I had on the freebsd-questions list. I've

there was anywhere I could mail my useless (to me) adapter so support
could be added.


The current CDCE ethernet driver does not support PHY's. The other
ethernet drivers, like if_axe, which does USB3.0 aswell, will get you a
PHY. Have a look at sys/dev/usb/net in the source tree.

Pardon my ignorance but what is PHY's?

For the sake of those searching in the future, I ended up buying a
TRENDnet TU2-ET100 and it is working fine. I didn't need the USB3.0 (or
actually even have a 3.0 port) but it's what I happened to have.


A PHY/miibus is the external interface of an ethernet adapter typically. It is what tells you about the line-rate and various options like full duplex, simplex and so on.
