Usb ethernet adapter doesn't start at boot time

Hello.

I’m facing a problem with my network, I’m using a usb to ethernet adapter and every time my system boots the network via usb is down, but the WIFI works well, I always have to make “rcnetwork restart” and then everything gets well.

This is the adapter:

Thanks in advance

Reboot, run rcnetwork restart and provide full output as root of

journalctl -b --no-pager --full

Did you try to wait without restarting NetworkManager?

So NetworkManagrer detects device on boot, and later when you restart it waits for carrier. May be device needs time to detect carrier?

Thanks for your answer.

I’ve waited up to 10 minutes and nothing :sob:

Try enabling additional NetworkManager logs. Create file /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/debug.conf with the content

[logging]
level=TRACE
domains=ALL

reboot and capture journalctl output.

I noticed after enabling debug mode, the PC booted and enable the device fine, after the second reboot it didn’t work again, so I’ll attach the journalctl output of both cases.

fine way:

Thanks again!

The only difference between two that I can see - in the working case interface is renamed before NetworkManager is started. Which matches what we already know - restarting NetworkManager after interface was renamed works too.

For testing you could try making NetworkManager to wait for the interface.

mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service.d
cat << EOF > /etc/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service.d/wait-for-USB.conf
[Unit]
After=sys-subsystem-net-devices-enp0s20f0u2u4c2.device
EOF

You can remove NetworkManager debug config to avoid too much noise in logs. Try rebooting several times with the above drop-in.

Still not working :sob:, here the log:

Thanks again for your reply and your time

Show
