comment Ethernet to USB adapter vs USB Ethernet card?
Thank you for pointing it out. I was considering them as cards because of the large price difference. For example, this one is refereed to as a card ebay.com/itm/…. But I've seen them costing 4X more.

I was thinking the 'usb network card' would use a generic USB host driver (or a proprietary driver) where in the adapter situation the usbnet driver (this is for Linux)?

comment Same IP on two NICs?
the kernel does not accept to have two interfaces with the same address Do you have a reference on that? I ask because arp -n has an Iface field. Tnx for the link local, didn't know about that.

@Envite I could, but that's not the point. I'm tiring to find out if it will be a problem if the IP become the same on both interfaces, and if so, why would it be a problem.

comment Same IP on two NICs?
@Envite No, that's the point. I can connect to different subnets and get different IP's on eth0 and I wouldn't want that to mess up the connection with the device on eth1.
