DisplayLink based USB 3.0 docking stations implement the USB-IF NCM Class protocol which is already present in the linux kernel - hopefully it will be possible to build a driver in a similar way to the ASIX one. There are some 'dongle' based designs as well - the latest one from Dell is http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=19&sku=470-ABHH&baynote_bnrank=0&baynote_irrank=1&~ck=dellSearch

Great to see that you're still working on the USB feature branch and keeping it current with mainline until someone has time to review it. As you have noticed, it's a tiny project with very few developers, so things do take time. Please have patience.

Can you help to port ASIX AX88179 driver to the source code? That model cannot work normally.

USB support is starting to arrive in mainline iPXE:


jwillis84: Maybe you should try to port the drivers you have already worked on to this new infrastructure, then maybe we can get support for the other controllers and drivers more quickly. Regardless, I encourage you to test it out and report back how it works on your hardware.

is there any plan on updating this git because I can't get it to compile on Ubuntu 18.04.
