Initially for using at my Sharp Zaurus I bought a
cheap USB-Ethernet adaptor which is said to contain
an ADMtek8511 chip(set).

After adding vendor and product id's to pegasus.h

# ----------------------------------------
#define VENDOR_DAVICOM 0x0a46

PEGASUS_DEV( "USB 10/100 Fast Ethernet",
VENDOR_DAVICOM, 0x0286,
PEGASUS_II )
# ----------------------------------------

for a kernel 2.6.16.21-0.13-smp I was able to load
the module, but when plugging in the stick I get
errors similar to those mentioned here:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7126

so I applied the patch supplied from Sonic_275, but
nothing changed.

The machine is an FSC Lifebook E8110 running SuSE
10.1

The adaptor is very similar to the one mentioned
here:

(out of iManufacturer = "Anyics Tech")

Under a Windows 2k the device works with the supplied
driver (dm9usb.sys).
