Hello Keith,

Thanks for reaching out to us at Plugable! Are you using the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 version of the E1000? The USB 2.0 version should work with Linux Kernel 3.2 out of the box, the USB 3.0 version requires some drivers under that older Kernel version.

Please let me know the exact product you are having issues with, so that I may help you further!
