MINIX NEO C, USB-C Multiport Adapter - Gigabit Ethernet Driver

#4
Same problem for me. I'm not able to have this adapter working on my MB pro 2018 on Mac os 10.4.1 with last driver installed.
I tried to see if the software extension was loaded but it was not loaded until I didn’t run the command:
Code:
sudo kextload /Library/Extensions/AX88179_178A.kext
Then, it is loaded but still the interface does not appear on my network settings.
Now, if I run
Code:
kextstat | grep asix
I get
Code:
175    0 0xffffff7f846a5000 0x9000     0x9000     com.asix.driver.ax88179-178a (1.12.0) 5062930F-B7EB-3AA9-8DA5-4E197D09CD07 <54 23 6 5 3 1>
But yet, I do not see the interface in my networking list.

Could you please help me to resolve this annoying issue.

Have you installed the latest driver version from ASIX website?

I’ve tried the latest adapter John, but the behaviour is the same. Note that the Kensington adapter I have is working fine on Ethernet, so this is specific to your device.
Version now installed 2.14.0

I recently upgrade my MB Pro to Catalina and I'm start expecting issue with the display. when I plug-in the external monitor works for a few secs after flash 1 time, and next time connection is lose.
Any idea?

Hi John, I tried installing the latest drivers for Ethernet for my Neo C USB C Multiport adapter on my new MBP 16 machine with OSX Catalina 10.15.2. Initially I needed to authorize some scripts got it to run through however the Ethernet is unstable continually drops with latest drivers from the site for OS X 10.15. Any advice? Kextload gives me com.asix.driver.ax88179-178a (1.12.0) 5062930F-B7EB-3AA9-8DA5-4E197D09CD07 and adapter is seen

Hi,
Could I get some help please?
I also have this adaptor and MacBook Pro 15 inch, OS version 10.14.6. I can not seem to make the Cable internet connection work. It simply does not see it is plugged in. Went to https://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131and installed the driver Apple Mac OS X 10.9 to 10.14 Drivers Installer V2.14.0 and rebooted. No luck. :(
Went to the next driver available Apple Mac OS X 10.15 above Drivers Installer v2.16.0 but while installing it I get to a section called Installation Type where the Install button is greyed out. It is skipping the Destination Select, as it is jumping from Read Me to Installation type. Any Ideas what is the issue ?

Also please note that the adaptor works well on an Asus laptop to which i just plugged it in and the connection was there. :(
