Is it necessary to use this type of driver because of the USB to
ethernet? Does it perform some sort of translation, USB <--> ethernet?

Looking at the readme and faq, I see that a person will still have to
set up ppp.conf and other generic stuff, like usb, resolv.conf, and
ifconfig in /etc/rc.conf, for instance.

Someone dial 911. My bling-bling was stolen and smuggled into Syria.
