Thank you once again for the quick response. Anyway, where do I request the driver be included?

Thank you.  You are using the latest version of iPXE, but you are using a build that does not include the SMSC95xx driver.  The boot attempt that you see is for an unrelated AR9485 wireless NIC.

The USB NIC drivers are not yet included in the default driver list, since we are still experiencing occasional issues relating to other USB devices (keyboards, storage, etc).

You will need to explicitly request that the SMSC95xx driver is included.  You can do this using

   make bin/smsc95xx.iso  # for only the SMSC95xx driver)


   make bin/ipxe--smsc95xx.iso  # for all the default drivers plus the SMSC95xx driver)
