Couldn't find anything by searching, so hopefully somebody could help:
I have a 2014 X1 Carbon (Gen 2) and my ethernet dongle stopped working this morning.
It worked fine for the past 3 weeks but after rebooting this morning i can't get to get access to the network via the ethernet port anymore.
The port's activity lights don't light up and a network connection is never recognized.
I have checked the Device Manager and verified that I have the latest drivers (18.104.22.168 for Intel I218-LM), and made sure that the Power Settings do not allow the port to go to sleep.
I have also tried 3 different ethernet dongles, all behaving the same way.
I was able to use a USB-to-Ethernet dongle to get access with a ethernet cable, but that's not an ideal solution.
Is my port just dead? I don't see any visible damage, or loose connectors.
Any thoughts on what to inspect next?
