My Ethernet port died. Is there a way to reroute Ethernet connections through USB ports?

My Ethernet port died. Is there a way to reroute Ethernet connections through USB ports?

Most every networking company (D-Link, Netgear, and so on) makes some sort of Ethernet-to-USB adapter - but we couldn't find one that ships with a Mac-compatible driver. Lucky for you, crafty Mac hackers have created drivers for most known adapters. The drivers are free for the download (www.sustworks.com/site/news_usb_ethernet.html), but study the compatibility matrix to figure out which driver matches your version of USB (1.1 or 2.0) and your Ethernet-to-USB adapter model.
