I tried searching the forums but couldn’t find one. I currently have a StarTech USB2100S2 REV B for a Dell XPS 13 (L321X) that is not working. Has anyone else had any luck with other makes/models?

Looking for USB NIC that is known to work with PXE/Fog
Unable to resolve names from pxe debug
TLDR: How do you configure the pxeboot’d clients (ie debug mode) to resolve names?
I have successfully deployed fog and have been using it for many months now without a problem. We have only been using the standard image deploy but a new order of hundreds of identical systems prompted me to dabble in the multicasting. I’ve yet to get the multicasting to work but I have been following the fogwiki articles and forum posts to work through the issues. I think I am really close but have a simple issue. Specifically I am referencing [URL=‘http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Troubleshooting_a_multicast’]this wiki article on troubleshooting a multicast[/URL].
[CODE]udp-receiver --mcast-rdv-address yourfogserver[/CODE]
The above command works if I replace yourfogserver with its IP but does not work for its actual name. In fact, I can’t ping any names at all, even by FQDNs. The correct dns server is configured in the pexelinux.cfg file on the append lines. I can ping the fogserver or any other host on my network by IP. My fog server itself can ping with names and FQDNs. From a hosts pxe debug boot, there is no /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/hostname is set to fogclient.localdomain, which is obviously not correct for my setup.

It PXE boots to the menu, but any option from the menu doesn’t load a driver for it. I’ve tried the latest 5 kernels to no avail.
