I have some issues with an AX88179 usb3.0 to ethernet adapter. I am running 12.04 on a dell xps 13. I bought the adapter last week and after I installed the drivers that are provided here http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131 , it worked fine. But the next day it couldn't connect any more. Then I tried to reinstall the drivers. It didn't help. Then I tried to install the driver via:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qji/ax88179
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ax88179

But after all that the adapter doesn't work at all (but the adapter works on a mac.

I would be grateful if somebody could help me!

Thanks pit
