Greetings fellow Unraiders(?),
I recently bought a server from Bargainhardware in the UK to replace the old one i had. On the back is 1 Ethernet managment port so no ethernet from that. And a SFP+ port. The problem is that SFP+ to ethernet converters are quite expensive. Therefore I decided to go another route, which is ethernet over usb. For this I selected the TP-link UE300 adapter which has linux OS support. (yay linux support)
So, got home, plugged in the adapter but nothing happened. The ethernet port showed connection, the usb adapter showed connection but Unraid refused to connect.
Tried a couple of usb ports, different ethernet ports. Still nothing. Decided to install ubuntu on a seperate disk to ensure it was indeed working. Of course the adapter then decided to work like a charm. ubuntu showed it working under the CDC_ethernet driver. Not sure if this driver is available on Unraid.
Coming back to my question. Is there any way to get this working on Unraid?
Unraid version: 6.3.4
cpu: 2* intel xeon e5-2650
ram: 32 GB
ethernet chip: 82599 (maybe important?)
drives: 2*3TB 3*1TB 1*500GB cache
motherboard: not quite sure
