Usb-c to lan adapter: asix-ax88179-dkms

It appears, the driver has been ditched from kernel 6.X. I wonder why.

Don’t know why, but can you use the LTS kernel?

Just installed it w/ an older adapter that still worked :slightly_smiling_face:

Sorry, what did you refer to with “it”?
Meaning: I’m not sure what you did exactly.

Sorry, “it” refers to the package mentioned in the title.

Are you saying that the module/driver was supported by earlier kernels before and now it’s not?

The package you are mentioning seems to have been in AUR since 2015:

https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/log/?h=asix-ax88179-dkms

It happens from time to time that a newer kernel drops the support for some older pieces of hardware.

2015 seems fairly new, though.
