Ethernet not working after update

2018-02-01, 3:36 AM

When I first received my phone, Ethernet via USB worked flawlessly, after the phone installed some updates it stopped working.

I use the TP-Link UE300 USB to Ethernet adapter, that works fine on everything, including my father's Zenfone 3 with Android 8.0 Oreo (BTW, where's the Oreo update for the Z2 play, Lenovo? thought near stock Android would get updates faster!).

When I connect the adapter to my phone and a Ethernet cable the LED starts blinking, but nothing else happens. Tried to disable every other type of connection and then try to use the internet, nothing.

This feature is REALLY useful for me, I used it all the short time it worked to configure routers and other stuff without needing a computer.

TP-Link states that adapter is for PCs, and apparently was not tested for phones, unless they have not updated the technical specs on their website. 


Talk to them about getting the device certified for phones, and ask them what version of android they will formally support.
