I own an HTC Desire HD and it currently has the IceColdSandwich custom rom on it. I also own a usb OTG adapter and a D-Link USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet adapter DUB-E100.
What I want to achieve is to connect my phone on a Cisco Router with that "cable sequence"(Phone -> USB OTG adapter -> USBtoETHERNET dub-e100 -> ethernet cable -> Router) and be able to sustain a telnet connection between the two in order to give network configuration.
In order for this to work I definitely need to enable the USB host mode on my device through kernel.
Let's say I can get my kernel to work do I need the usbnet driver with my combined hardware for the dub-e100 to work? or maybe there is really no way for this to be done?
any ideas on alternative ways to do this?
-edit- There are many reasons why one would want to do this. For example, testing an ethernet port in an office building without having to lug around a laptop. Another, be able to configure a router that does not have wireless, or one that you can't access the wireless on (maybe you butterfingered the encryption key on the AP) -edit- by Izzy
