USB ethernet dongle shuts down


I’ve set up a vyos on bare metal, with an inbuilt gigabit ethernet port for external, and a USB gigabit ethernet adapter port for internal.

However, within a few seconds of boot, the system seems to autosuspend the USB ethernet dongle. I’ve tried all the measures suggested from “usb autosuspend” searches, but nothing helps.

The bare metal box is an Intel NUC, so there’s no way of installing a PCIe network adapter card.

Please advise what I need to do to stop the USB network adapter from going down all the time.

Hi @davidmcnabnz, do you see this issue on VyOS rolling version or on 1.2.x stable?
