Networking: USB 3.0 Network Adapter Support

USB 3.0 LAN adapters are fast 1000 Mb/s and it would be nice if the drivers was added to the kernel.
Special thoose with Asix chips, they are all over!

        Sophos UTM 9.201-23 lists its kernel version as 3.8.13.15-111

        The AX88179 entered the mainline Kernel at version 3.9

        Could anyone from Sophos comment as to maybe when a UTM version built on Kernel 3.9 or later be released?

        Unless Sophos are actively removing modules when rebuilding their Kernel build, hopefully support for the AX88179 adapters should be coming soon...

        9.1 don't support USB 3.0 network adapters. It does support USB 2.0 network adapters. but in my case where I have a 100 mbit/s internet connection, USB 2.0 is not fast enough to handle a stable connection with both up- and downloads. at best it perform 40-50% of a 100 mbit/s connection.
        but thanks for the comment/information!
