Add Ethernet Connectivity to the Motorola Xoom

Wireless network connectivity is a wonderful thing. Can you imagine what life would be like if we had to connect our mobile devices via Ethernet every time we wanted to send an email, check a stock quote, or even browse our lovely forums? Calling that inconvenient would be a gross understatement. That said, there are still situations in which  in which we must rely on wired connections in order to get online.

To get connected without a WiFi hotspot, XDA Forum Member clotai has written drivers for the Motorola Xoom that allow the use of any USB Ethernet adapter based on the popular DM9601 chipset.

The driver was originally intended for the previously covered Team EOS Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, but clotai has also compiled a version for the Rogue kernel. To get started, proceed to the kernel module thread.
