    Anyone try to see if this works on the Surface yet? I'm curious to see if it does.

    I haven't tried, but I asked the same question at XDA-Developers and people there were unsuccessful.

    I tried connecting my Apple USB to Ethernet adapter and although it was identified, no drivers could be installed. I don't have any other adapters (different brands) to try, unfortunately.

    Well if I was going to guess any adapter that wouldn't be compatible, it would be an Apple branded air adapter.

    Given that it works with Windows 8 just fine, it was perfectly reasonable to expect it to work with the Surface

    Someone in this thread is saying they tested that Cisco adapter and it doesn't work:
