Usb 2-1: device not accepting address 22, error -71

I bought this usb-c to ethernet adaptor

I installed the AX88179 driver from AUR but I still can’t get connectivity.

I get this in my journal:

usb 2-1: device not accepting address 18, error -71
usb usb2-port1: unable to enumerate USB device

Any idea how to fix that?

I have a USB 3 Ethernet adapter that uses AX88179 and I did not have to install any driver for it as it was included in the kernel (as of kernel 3.9). That (Plugable brand) adapter works flawlessly. I have two other Trendnet brand adapters (Asix AX88179)that work flawlessly. An inxi output might help here in diagnosing and fixing the issue.

inxi output:

Did you read the page? Your issue is network related and you posted no network information.

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width

Full info bellow.

I’ve plugged in another adapter that does work:

So ignore that please.
