Peter Sichel of [Sustainable Softworks] is a genius. Seriously. He’s not only just updated his [USB to Ethernet Adapters for Mac OS X] to work with the recently released Apple-branded USB Ethernet adapter, but he sent me a comment letting me know.
I’ve just installed the `USBAx8817x 1.0.3b10` release and it seems to be working.
Peter emailed me to let me know his sources inside Apple report that the driver in 10.5.2 should correctly with Apple’s adapter. You will have to remove Peter’s driver to see if this works. I’ll try it when I get the server back from repair as I’ll have to re-install the OS anyway.
