Hi all,

I have one of these dongles and was hoping to use it as a another ethernet
interface for the NUC-based firewall I'm using. The is present in FreeBSD
12.

FreeBSD fwrout.crafncomp.com 12.0-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p3
GENERIC  amd64

The following comes up when I plug it in

ugen0.7: <ASIX Elec. Corp. AX88179> at usbus0
uhid1 on uhub1
uhid1: <Mouse> on usbus0
device_attach: uhid1 attach returned 12

I've tried preloading if_axge.ko in /boot/loader.conf, but that doesn't
make any difference. This bug has been present since FreeBSD 11, at least.

Any ideas?
