Ticket #1279 (closed defect: fixed)
RNDIS no longer works with Windows -- regression

The USB RNDIS network connection worked fine with 18.104.22.168, but fails to connect
on 2.6.24. In the Windows XP Device Manager the RNDIS device shows up when the
Neo is plugged in, but the device status message says "This device cannot start
(Code 10)" and the dreaded yellow exclamation point appears on the device entry.
If I recall correctly, this is the same symptom that occurred in older kernel
versions (before 2.6.22), so it's possible this is simply a regression to past
behavior in the kernel. But I can't confirm that, as XP doesn't provide much
It doesn't seem to matter if I ifdown/ifup on the Neo, or reboot the Neo while
connected, or anything along those lines.
I had gotten spoiled being able to scp files to/from my Neo when going between
my home machine (Ubuntu 7.10) and my desktop at work (Windows XP).
The USB net connection still works fine on my Ubuntu system, incidentally. This
appears to be Windows-specific.
