I am trying to connect to the internet with Debian Sid and kernel 4.16-rc4 on my Wii U. It recognizes the USB 2.0 device when I plug it in, but when I connect the ethernet cable to the device, it does not detect a network connection. I am using an ASIX AX88772B USB 2.0 device.
shows the device as a network connection, but the address never changes when I plug the ethernet cable in. I've tested the ethernet cable and it works fine.
I have the same issue on my Ubuntu Kylin Desktop, but the adapter works fine in Win 7.
In addition, I have no desktop interface at the moment and I have to manually transfer via usb any debs I need to install due to no internet. Just a little bit irritating :D
