when completing the installation it came up with a message saying its picked up ethernet port... i didn't try it but i get the yellow light with a new eth1 port shown in network settings.
Please try & post back if successful!
From the PdaNet website.. "During installation PdaNet will add an ethernet interface ("en2" in most cases) to your network list". So I guess it's just that you've seen this new IP over USB "ethernet port" installed for iPhone tethering, and it's unfortunately not related to the on-board Ethernet port.
