I'm having the exact same problem Windows XP problem with USBnet on my Overo
Earth + Chestnut. My USBnet works fine on my linux machine (Kubuntu 10.04)
after folllowing the USBnet instructions for Overo listed in this thread. I
can ssh and ping between the two ends fine. When I plug the same board into
my Windows XP machine I get the "USB Device Not Recognized" error that keeps
popping up about 1x per second. If I unload g_ether (modprob -vr g_ether)
then the message goes away. As soon as I reload (modprobe -v g_ether) the
message comes back again. I tried building an image with both MUSB_MODE in
build/conf/local.conf set to both "peripheral" and "otg". Both of these
seem to work fine with my linux box but they both cause the same windows
I have compiled kernel version 2.6.34.
lsmod shows g_ether, ipv6, option, usbserial, ads7846. I'm not sure if
anything else would be helpful for debugging this.
I don't get the found new hardward wizard I was expecting upon plugging in
the USB cable as shown in this tutorial:
