I have Samsung Galaxy S Blaze with the following specs

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G SGH-T769
Android version = 4.0.4
Baseband version = T769UVMB1
Kernel version = 3.0.8-perf-T769ULVH5-CL990184 
Model Number = SGH-T769

I am following this thread on XDA as I had the same problem reported on page 4.

I am using AX88772 compatible USB to Ethernet adapter (plugable USB 2.0) and have successfully compiled drivers for Android ICS. I have also put the asix.ko into /system/lib/modules directory and loaded it with insmod.

I have connected the Samsung phone with Inateck USB 3.0 four-port hub where I have also connected plugable USB 2.0 ethernet adapter. But the ethernet is not working:

root@hammerhead:/ # netcfg eth0 up
netcfg eth0 up
action 'up' failed (No such device)

There is no mention about OTG driver and USB host driver. Are they installed by default? How do I check if I have these installed? Or, are they not needed?

Thanks and a very happy new year.


Well i got the solution. I was using inatek HB4004G USB3.0 four-port hub. I should have used on the go (OTG) cable instead. When i used the OTG cable, ethernet interface eth0 came up. Here is the OTG cable for your convenience.enter image description here


some older USB OTG ports needed a powered OTG.

Even Powered hubs didn't work on my droid 1, whereas that did.

Also some USB ETH chips don't work on android.
