Issues with USB Type C NIC Adaptors


  • @george1421 Thank you for the reply, I find myself in these situations nearly every time we get new hardware. I’m not a Linux person, I struggle with the most simple tasks and reading your reply leaves me, well like this:

    I’m open to trying anything, our setup has been finicky in that what “should” happen for “normal” processes and commands - they don’t happen in our environment as they should.

    What does rebuilding ipxe mean, how do I do that?

    Again, full transparency, I know very little so please be patience and I thank you for your reply and future correspondence.

    @michaeloberg Well I think the short answer to test is to see if you can rebuild ipxe on the fog server with the latest build of ipxe. It may address the mac address pass through.

    Your condition exactly fits where FOS Linux (the os that moves data to and from the target computer) sees the pass through mac address (because inventory registers one mac address) but ipxe sees only the dongle mac address so it says the device isn’t registered.
