I have box running
4.4.0-62-generic #83-Ubuntu x86_64 GNU/Linux
I also have this Moshi USB/Ethernet Combo https://www.amazon.com/Moshi-USB-Gigabit-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B00NMPB4H8, that has ASIX ax88760 chipset.
When I connect the USB device to the system the ethernet port does not appear to light up or be seen by the system as a functional NIC. I did a bit of research (months ago) and found that most likely I need to install the drivers for this card.
Doing a quick google search
asix ax88760 ubuntu led me to this page.
That page states (screenshot)
So my question is: Do I need to compile ASIX Electronics AX88x7x/760 USB Ethernet driver to my kernel? How would I definitely determine this?
