OT: have you found a USB/Ethernet NIC adapter that actually works for the RT tablet? Its required by Microsoft for remote debugging (see Remote debugging on Windows RT
), but I think its mythical like unicorns and leprechauns. I have only found one chipset with RT drivers (AX88x72A device), but it breaks the touchcover's keypad and mousepad.
Anyway, thanks for your help.
Just registered to be able to reply
It's no myth
got one here that works just fine with my WinRT tablet ( Unity games development ) without it i would be pretty much f*cked: debugging/deploying for tests over Wifi is nearly impossible, at least with my setup ( horrible Wifi connection speed issues, connection loss etc.. )
This is the model i use:
EAN4016032315285 http://www.mts-shop.eu/components/compu ... h3o1gpcdl3
Apparently all other adapters using the same chipset work too, thats because that chipset is the ONLY one whith leaked WinRT drivers, until Microsoft forced the manufactorer to put them offline.
The chipset is called AX88772, heres the link, but as i said you will not find WinRT drivers therehttp://www.asix.com.tw/products.php?op= ... =86;71;101
To get those drivers to a google search for "AX88772B_772A_772_WinRT_Driver_v220.127.116.117.zip"
BTW: via policy editing on the WinRT side, you are able to tweak the system similar to the desktop Windows 8, of course without the option to run x86 code. Don'T know about the Microsoft certifaction breaking or how easy that might be, as i simply use it to test my Unity Games on the WinRT device...
Ahh - had missed you already posted about those drivers...
