ASIX AX88179 USB LAN does not work on tc 12 and 13
« on: June 14, 2022, 11:26:36 PM »
As the title says, ASIX AX88179 USB LAN does not work, even if the latest driver from newbielink:https://www.asix.com.tw/en/support/download [nonactive].  FYI, logs are below.

This appears to be a kernel driver bug / hw bug that the driver doesn't know how to work around. A few google hits report the same.

There doesn't seem to be a solution for now. Try using another usb ethernet adapter.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi sohnman
Welcome to the forum.

Please use  Code Tags  when posting commands and responses seen in a terminal. To use  Code Tags  click on the  #  icon
above the reply box and paste your text between the  Code Tags  as shown in this example:

[   36.191753] pcm512x 1-004d: Failed to get supply 'AVDD': -517[/code]

It will appear like this in your post:

Code Tags  serve as visual markers between what you are trying to say and the information you are posting. They also preserve
spacing so column aligned data displays properly. Code tags also automatically add horizontal and or vertical scrollbars
to accommodate long lines and listings.
