Bought the new UE300(UN) through Amazon.
Wifi connection where the Desktop is located is very slow.
That is the motivation to try this Ethernet adapter.
Desktop PC: Windows 10 with USB3.0 and USB2.0 ports.
After connecting the UE300(UN) [USB3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter] to my Windows 10 PC's USB3.0 port, noticed that the White LED is permanently ON.
But it is not connecting to the internet.
The Adapter shows "Unidentified Network".
For couple of hours, I googled and tried everything that was recommened.
None of the following helped to resolve the issue.
When I run the "Diagnose" on the adapter, it shows the "Doesn't have a valid IP Configuration Not Fixed".
Comand prompt (running as Admin) shows the following:
Ethernet adapter Ethernet 2:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::4160:cc3d:dc50:1c51%10
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.28.81
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
I tried assigning a static IP address. That is also not working.
ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew doesn't help.
disable/enable of the adapter doesn't work.
Folloing commands don't resolve the issue.
ipconfig /flushdns, netsh winsock reset, netsh int tcp reset
Powered down the desktop. Powered down the router. Waited 5 minutes.
Powered on teh router. Waited and powered on the desktop pc.
Tried both the USB3.0 port and USB 2.0 port.
Replaced the Ethernet cable. Doesn'e help.
I have disabled IPv6.
I disabled the WiFI adapter and Itried to renew the IP address for teh UE300 using ipconfig,
I saw an error message "Unable to reach the DHCP server".
I am at a loss. No clue what else I can try.
My only remaining option is hitting my head against the wall :) but I know it won't help!
