Using a USB/Ethernet Adapter with the XO Laptop

Using a wired ethernet connection with the XO Laptop from OLPC couldn't be easier. I used a generic $15 adapter from Fry's and it worked out of the box with no problems.

I plugged in the USB/Ethernet adapter partway through the boot cycle. The XO recognized it, provided power to it, and used DHCP to setup network access automatically. (The wired connection was eth1.)

I was instantly able to use the Browse application to visit websites.
