It would be nice to have Ethernet support as the Internal WiFi chip
doesn't work with free software.

It would will make testing faster as you don't need to enter a WiFi
password or to setup a custom access point without password specifically
for that.

It's not 100% reliable as it didn't work the first time I tried, but
all the subsequent tests worked fine.

I tested it with an official Samsung usb host cable and a 10/100
Ethernet card that is compatible with the asix driver.

Once the card is plugged in, no setup is required, and at the end
an icon that looks like "<->" appears on the top bar.
At that point the device has automatically done a dhcp and everything
is configured.

I didn't test if all the appliations detected fine that there is a
valid connection but for some, this is sufficent to be able to
download things from the Internet.
