    Default Re: XPS15: Ethernet through Thunderbolt port not working

    I think you're impacted by the bug described here
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1236679
    whereby USB autosuspend is causing the device to sleep perhaps. In the bug report is was mentioned that tlp (power management utility) could be used with the appropriate configuration
    Code:
    USB_BLACKLIST="0bda:8153"
    It is possible to prevent autosuspend via a suitable udev rule, but tlp simplifies power management of various system components.

    The last comment in that bug report suggests that there was a bug fix in kernel 4.13.4, so if the above power management tweak is not sufficient, then perhaps trying the current stable kernel might also help here.

    No Problem, I edited the Thread a short time before the time was gone, so no time to explain the Link as you have done.

    Hi, and I'm sorry for the delay. I was not aware of the latest messages. I'll go now through the links mentioned. Meanwhile, I have tried journalctl and this is what I get when I plug in:

    Default Re: XPS15: Ethernet through Thunderbolt port not working

    Little update. I have tried a very similar device from a college (from outside, it looks just the same), and it works out of the box! The difference seems to be internal, and subtle. The one that does not work is (obtained with hwinfo) "Realtek RTL8153 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter", whereas the working device is "Realtek RTL8152 Fast Ethernet Adapter". The one not working seems slightly better or at least a newer model. As the kernel module is called ''r8512", I'd interpret that the kernel module is just not updated to deal with the newer model, right? So I guess I basically have to survive with the "old model" until a newer kernel fixes the problem, right?

    By the way, I'm already using a fairly updated kernel to cope with other sound card issues, a version 4.14.
