This Fling supports the most popular USB network adapter chipsets found in the market.
Is there a date for release the new version compatible with Esxi 7.0 U3 ?
Version 1.9 of the driver works with the ESXi-7.0U3a-18825058 standard.
Perhaps there should be a brief guide on how to upgrade from older versions. Below you can see how I did it:
1. Remove older Fling drivers, if any: esxcli software component remove -n VMware-vmkusb-nic-fling
2. Update to the latest profile supported by the driver
3. Install the new driver that corresponds to the Flings driver.
5. You may have to remove the USB network card from the virtual switch in VMware. This could be the case due to the settings of /etc/rc.local.d/local.sh. With the official guide here, it shouldn't be necessary.
Is there a plan to add support for Asus USB-C2500(Realtek r8152) 2.5Gb USB dongle?
Now I am not sure, the the doc file is named r8152 and yet the according to the the release notes file it claims to be RTL8156B(VID_0B05&PID_1976&REV_3005). It's either RTL8152 or RTL8156B chipset.
No, there is not
I have a USB Type C Networkadapter from Intel / Rivet Killer E3100U. From the Windows Device Controll i was able to see that it has the following Device description amd Details:
Device discription: Killer E3100U Ethernet Controller
Device Instance ID: USB\VID_1A56&PID_3100\001000001
Hardware IDs : USB\VID_1A56&PID_3100&REV_3100
Since this is a very common 2.5 GBits Ethernet Adapter will there soon be a possibility for you to integrate it in this driver package?
oh I have se same adapter and wanted to use it with my ESXi... so I assume it does not work?
Your right from the chipset it's a common Realtek RTL8156, so I would have expected that it works...
Unfortunately in the testing i did it didn't work. So i was hoping i would get support leaving the question and details here.
