ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB 10/100/1G/2.5G LAN


Recommended Posts

I recently bought a USB ASUSTek Computer, Inc. 10/100/1G/2.5G LAN 3.0 Network adapter. I don't want to pass it through to a VM or or Docker. I want it to be a dedicated network between my unraid box and another server I have, but still have unraid on my primary network. So dual networks, my primary network adapter would be and the USB NIC would be .


The issue i am having is that when I hook the USB NIC up, unraid doesn't list it under Network Settings. But if I look under System devices is see the USB NIC.


I have attached screenshots.


I have a feeling that the issue is going to be that unraid doesn't have the driver.


Any thoughts? ( Also, I am still new to unraid so please be patient with me. )


Thanks for any help.

How do I go about making a feature request.... I did a little googling and it just brings be back to the forum. Do I just post a new thread asking for the driver to be added?

You will need to find the chipset.


the ASUS one i found needs the following


config USB_RTL8152

tristate "Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153 Based USB Ethernet Adapters"

select MII


This option adds support for Realtek RTL8152 based USB 2.0

10/100 Ethernet adapters and RTL8153 based USB 3.0 10/100/1000

Ethernet adapters.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the

module will be called r8152.


Looking on the lastest version they are not installed in the kernel.


root@computenode:/usr/src/linux-5.14.2-Unraid# cat .config | grep USB_RTL
# CONFIG_USB_RTL8150 is not set
# CONFIG_USB_RTL8152 is not set


This may help show more info for your device. I have a QNAP 5G, I requested the driver be added, but it doesn't work with bonding.
