Although these devices may work, the drivers are not supplied by Microsoft, and are not supplied by the manufacture, and took some hacking around.

How can you force it to use the built in driver? Don’T know about the Microsoft certifaction breaking or how easy that might be, as i simply use it to test my Unity Games on the WinRT device The start menu topics go into the Classic Start Menu forum, etc. June 18, at I’ve ordered a USB to Ax87872b cable, so we’ll see how it goes. See this post for details.

Potential RT driver for Asix AX88772 USB-to-Ethernet Adapter
I had to have my Surface replaced. Microsoft has asked ASIX to pull the driver from their site. This could be that your chipset is not compatible. It will act as a booster, repeater or WiFi to Ethernet router.
Hoping that will work without any issues. Search tags for this page. The driver is now installed.
