    I just confirmed that driver version 1.4.0 works flawlessly under 13.04.

    Re: Digitus DN-3023: Gigabit Ethernet USB 3.0 adapter

    I see many people reporting success with this device under Linux but unfortunately this is not the case for me on Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 on a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition. I compile the driver (v1.4.0) without any problems (make, make install), I load it using modprobe and I see it as eth2. I can even see some RX/TX traffic but it cannot acquire an IP address so it is unusable.

    dmesg output:

    A different USB 2.0 Gigabit ethernet adapter and the WiFi are both working fine, so networking shouldn't be a problem on my laptop.

    Is there something I miss for this specific chipset?
    Any suggestion on how to debug this further?

    @CyberAngel: Stupid question, but maybe it is a good idea to rule out a hardware problem first: does the device work on another laptop and/or under Windows? If this is the case, I would suggest to contact the developer of the driver (Freddy Xin, contact details are mentioned above) directly.

    I haven't tried this specific Digitus device, but I have tried an STLab USB 3.0 Docking Station (which provides 3 USB 3.0 ports + 1 Gigabit Ethernet port based on this chipset) and a Startech USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. Both of them behave the same. I am going to try it now on different hardware with Ubuntu 12.04 (USB 2.0 Ports on the motherboard though) and see if it works.

    Well, it could be that this specific Digitus device is broken. My intention was to rule this out (as it seems to work "for everybody else").

    It looks like it's working on different hardware that I tried it. It must be something with Dell XPS 13 then.

    I had the very same problem on a Dell XPS 13. The Solution was to upgrade to Kernel 3.10 as described here: http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-ker...and-derivates/

    So it is something with the Dell XPS 13..

    Thanks for replying on this! I will try to upgrade to the latest kernel tomorrow and report if it fixes the problem.

    Re: Digitus DN-3023: Gigabit Ethernet USB 3.0 adapter

    I tested with 3.9 and 3.10.1 kernel from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ but still no luck :/

    Same weird behavior. Recognised, dmesg shows link is up at 1000Mbps, the packet counter of ifconfig increases and then the error counter increases as well

    Exact same problem here as well on my office network. Connects perfectly fine on a Win7 (non XPS13) box, but no luck on 13.04 with 3.10 kernel.

    It does get as far as establishing a 1Gbps connection, obtaining the correct IP, gateway and DNS servers via DHCP (exactly same as on Win7), but after that, it can't ping any of them nor resolve any addresses.

    That said, it works perfectly fine on my home network, also via DHCP (but at 100mbps as that's the limit of my router) - but haven't found any kernel option to force 100mbps in case that's related to this issue.
