I have a USB ethernet adapter that doesn't seem to work out of the box
on my 10.0 system. I'm hoping somebody can help me figure out what
driver to load, or if there even is a driver available.

When I plug the device into the FreeBSD machine the only line on dmesg
ugen4.2: <Linksys> at usbus4

It does work with my Ubuntu 14.04 system. I've added the dmesg output in
the hopes that it will be helpful:
