I have used it with Realtek chip based USB-ethernet module. It works but needs several hacks and it may be dificult
to find USB ethernet module that works. Normally they don't say what chip is used. I did blog about USB-OTG and howto.
In practice easiest cheapest way is to buy simple Wlan base station and connect it to wired connection. It works and
no hacks are needed.
