Tiny core USB Ethernet
« on: January 09, 2022, 04:55:26 PM »
Hi, sorry if this is the wrong forum. Bad habbit of do that..
I'm looking at the tiny core 20mb download, wired connection only.
I wondered if I USB tether my phone with wifi if that counts. I know other distros show it as an Ethernet connection when I do this.

Quick guess, not without installing wifi.

You may need to install the usb-serial extension, and possibly others. While many usb-ethernet adapters are supported natively, phones emulating that are a bit different.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi, zacmario.

Perhaps this is what you're looking for if you're trying to connect to internet via a smart phone.
