I bought an ethernet/usb adaptor for a laptop. After connecting the ethernet cable to it, I don’t have a network connection at all, not even a ethernet device is created:
$ ls /sys/class/net lo virbr0 wlp2s0
$ ip link show 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 3: virbr0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 52:54:00:34:86:c2 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 4: wlp2s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP mode DORMANT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 10:63:c8:6e:bc:23 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
The vendor is CoreChips.net.
lsusb output is:
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0fe6:9702 ICS Advent USB 2.0 10/100M Ethernet Adaptor
When I first plugged it in, file manager opened the folder where “driver” packages sit, as well as some info…
I want to know if it’s possible to run (somehow) them in my Manjaro/Mabox system or how can I get it to work.
I list them here:

SR9700 Mac OS 10.6~10.9 Driver.pkg folder contains only a single folder,
Contents, which in turns has:

It is my guess that since the vendor provided some drivers files for Win/Mac systems, maybe some of them somehow could I use with my Manjaro?
(Thanks in advance for reading thru this point so far ;D )
