CONFIG_USB_CDCETHER: CDC Ethernet support (smart devices such as cable modems)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_USB_CDCETHER has multiple definitions:

CDC Ethernet support (smart devices such as cable modems) found in drivers/usb/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_USB_CDCETHER:

Help text

This option supports devices conforming to the Communication Device Class (CDC) Ethernet Control Model, a specification that's easy to implement in device firmware. The CDC specifications are available from http://www.usb.org/.

CDC Ethernet is an implementation option for DOCSIS cable modems that support USB connectivity, used for non-Microsoft USB hosts. This driver should work with at least the following devices:

* Ericsson PipeRider (all variants) * Motorola (DM100 and SB4100) * Broadcom Cable Modem (reference design) * Toshiba PCX1100U * ...

This driver creates an interface named "ethX", where X depends on what other networking devices you have in use. However, if the IEEE 802 "local assignment" bit is set in the address, a "usbX" name is used instead.

USB CDC Ethernet support (EXPERIMENTAL) found in drivers/usb/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_USB_CDCETHER:

Help text

This driver supports devices conforming to the Communication Device Class Ethernet Control Model. This is used in some cable modems. For more details on the specification, get the Communication Device Class specification from http://www.usb.org/.

This driver should work with the following devices: * Ericsson PipeRider (all variants) * Motorola (DM100 and SB4100) * Broadcom Cable Modem (reference design) * Toshiba PCX1100U and possibly other cable modems

The device creates a network device (ethX, where X depends on what other networking devices you have in use), as for a normal PCI or ISA based ethernet network card.

This code is also available as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want). The module will be called cdc-ether. If you want to compile it as a module, say M here and read Documentation/modules.txt.
