Hello,
this a complicated question ....

If we would like to use this device in our LG PVR:
http://www.win-star.com/eshop/goods.php?id=29

We found that they provide linux source code for drivers:
http://www.win-star.com/eshop/article.php?id=17

I had a quick look into the linux drivers files and i found something like:

=====================================================
ASIX AX88178 USB2.0 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter
ASIX AX88772 USB2.0 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter
ASIX AX88772A USB2.0 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter
Driver Compilation & Configuration on the Linux
=====================================================

This driver supports kernel versions from 2.6.14 to 2.6.26.

And three files:
asixc.c
asixc.h
Makefile

Most sure these are for X86 platform.
The question is ..
is it feasible to compile this module withing crosscompiler for mipse32, and then insmode this module into memory..?
Thanks

It should. I did this kind of things in the past for the AgVr3, a little linux PDA also based on a MIPS processor. See some info here. I adapted the lirc_serial IR control driver module for the AgVr3 (the result is here).

Learning how to compile kernel modules for the MS450 should open us a lot of interesting possibilities, such as being able to handle USB Infrared blusters, DVD/BlueRay drives, etc.

For the AgVr3 we had a complete cross-compailing toolchain which does not seem to be the case here. Do any of you have requested the open source code to LG (they must provide it by law)? What is included in their source code package? Are the kernel sources included? Having these pieces of info could be a starting point...

Best, EVR.
