    I'm the original poster. Doing an upgrade from leap 15.2 (which the usb ethernet was not working) to leap 15.3 though a zypper dup did not help with having the usb ethernet working.

    But after "too many problems" I bit the bullet (full backup), brand new install of 15.3 and it works w/o any problem. Something/drivers must have been carried over from the 15.2, but I'm guessing...

    You can test it by downloading the iso, burning it to a usb stick and boot from it.

    It is a bit too long, so I posted to pastebin. I also changed my hostname with "{myhostname}".

    Thank you for the information. I would not like to have to perform a new install, but I'll try with a live image. Anyway, I would like to solve this issue instead of a new install.

    Default AW: Driver for rtl8153 usb ethernet

    I think the connection is there:
    Code:
    Sep 22 09:02:55 {myhostname} NetworkManager[2039]: <info>  [1632294175.0390] device (eth2): state change: secondaries -> activated (reason 'none', sys-iface-state: 'managed')
    Sep 22 09:02:55 {myhostname} NetworkManager[2039]: <info>  [1632294175.4350] device (eth2): Activation: successful, device activated.
    Sep 22 09:02:55 {myhostname} NetworkManager[2039]: <info>  [1632294175.5503] policy: set 'Conexión cableada 2' (eth2) as default for IPv4 routing and DNS
    This are the last from your journal.

    Yes, it constantly comes and goes. I lost connection, then recover it, the lost it again, then recover it. I can provide longer journal, I just call the command when there was only one disconnection and reconnection.

    For Leap 15.3 check if these packages are installed: kernel-default-optional and kernel-default-extra.
    And you need 2 repos from SLE for Leap 15.3.

    Code:

    Yes, it seems like they are installed.


    Code:
    ~> LANG=C zypper se kernel-default 
    Loading repository data... 
    Reading installed packages...

    Maybe I should have `kernel-default-base` installed?

    I also ran this, just in case:

    Code:
    ~> LANG=C sudo zypper inr 
    Loading repository data... 
    Reading installed packages... 
    Resolving package dependencies... 
    Nothing to do.

    So yesterday it worked perfectly. Today I am having problems again. Maybe I should re-install opensuse 15.3 from scratch but it is a bit painful to re-install all programs/packages and so on. It will have to wait until Christmas I think.


    EDIT: it seems that after disconnecting the USB-C and connecting back again, it works perfectly.

    Not really working perfectly, it drops intermitently but with less frequency than before.

    Thumbs up Re: Driver for rtl8153 usb ethernet

    Today I connected the ethernet cable to the adapter, then the adapter to my laptop's USB-C port. The adapter has some USB 3 ports that I usually use, but today I have not used. All working. Maybe connecting several things is "too much" for my adapter? I'll do more experiments.
