I just checked out the device you mentioned, and it appears to be just
what you want after all - just plug in your ethernet cable and go. Not
even a configuration step involved. Put a switch on the PC side to share
the connection with other computers. I don't think you need any special
software on the PC at all. It might be a different story if you need to
use USB - the user guide says you can't use USB with Linux, but that
shouldn't stop you trying :-)

Regards, K.
