I’m trying to use the Ethernet to USB adapter in order to connect to the uni lab computers as we don’t have spare Ethernet ports.
There is an Internet sharing option available on USB (RNDIS gadget) and it works, however I have a reason for another approach.
My connection is: the adapter Ethernet side is connected to BBB ethernet port with a cable and the adapter USB is connected to desktop PC (Win 7).
The adapter is D-Link DUB-1312 and i have tried the Apple adapter as well.
I know that is reverse to it’s intended purpose, but does it have a chance to work?
The results are:
BBB Ethernet socket yellow LED is solid ON, green LED is blinking
Adapter Ethernet socket yellow LED is OFF, green LED is blinking
On PC I have:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 19:

I am using the latest Debian image
Any advice, please
