Driver for USB Ethernet adapter

Postby zerubbabel » 2018-11-06 13:30

I am trying to get a USB 3.0 Hub/Ethernet Adapter to work on a Dell laptop running Debian Stretch. The output of lsusb is:

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:8153 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0bda:0411 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 8087:07dc Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f3:2075 Elan Microelectronics Corp.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1a40:0101 Terminus Technology Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:5683 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:5411 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The lsusb output with the device unplugged is missing the first two lines:

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:8153 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0bda:0411 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Which doesn't tell me much. The only possible identifying text on the device itself is "RoHS" in a little box. Otherwise, it appears to be generic. Can anyone tell me where to find a driver that might work for this device?

Looks like a a Realtek driver, you will need to enable non-free repos and install the firmware-realtek packages from your package manager.

Yup, did that, but it still doesn't make that device accessible.

But, I just found a tutorial on how to get this device to work: https://www.pcsuggest.com/install-rtl8153-driver-linux.
