I have recently bought a Thinkpad X1 Carbon, installed Ubuntu 12.10 and everything I need works like a charm - except for the Ethernet USB dongle. Searching Google hasn't brought up any solutions or even suggestions, so I'm wondering if I'm the only one experiencing this issue?

Looking at the output of lsusb, I did some more research and found a well documented solution, modifying an existing asix driver to support the Lenovo dongle:

Case of the Broken Linux Driver (Lenovo USB 2.0 Ethernet 10/100 dongle)

After compiling and installing the driver, the dongle now works immediately.
