Another area is perhaps the "driver" for the UB device ... On Raspbian the device uses "cdc_acm" - Is there an equivalent for TC?


It is the USB MODEM support which is built into the 3.13.3-piCore+ kernel. If you can use it in Raspbian, please compare modules installed in the two systems.

perhaps it should be taken out of the TCL pi kernel and created as module?
rmmod cdc_acm
modprobe cdc_acm
is perhaps necessary according http://askubuntu.com/questions/209605/cdc-acm-not-firing
AMD K6-IIIATZ 550MHz MB DFI K6xv3/+66
P4 HP DC7100 3GB 3GHz
Samsung NC10 boot from SD card port (via USB reader)
.. all TinyCore proofed

While it is possible to make a kernel for testing with cdc_am as a module, referred article doesn't say it is necessary.

I tried the same way you add a eth0:1 but this does not work as I'm sure we need to first tell the OS that there is an eth1 on the USB interface.

eth0? curious. it should be a ppp0?

$sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
...
auto ppp0
iface ppp0 inet wvdial
provider congstar
...
