`em28xx' devices are a strange situation.  There exists the
in-kernel drivers, and there exists an out-of-kernel set of
drivers which may have better support for this device.

Perhaps you may have better luck with the drivers which can
be found at mcentral.de .  The author of these drivers can
be found lurking on this list, but there is also a dedicated
mailing list for this driver, and posting to this list
requires you to be a subscriber (though non-subscriber posts
can make it to the list).

In any case, check out what is available at mcentral.de .
It is not as convenient as what may be provided, and in an
ideal world, your OS will provide working drivers for your
device, but this is some time off...
