Ethernet adapter does not work.
My gen 9 x1 Carbon does not have an Ethernet Port, so I bought an USB Type-C to Ethernet adapter. I have used this adapter on 2 different laptops with no problems (Thinkbook gen2) but it does not work on my X1 Carbon. When I go into network settings I can only see WiFi and Bluetooth but no Ethernet. In device manager network tab there is nothing disabled.
I feel like I don’t need a driver for the adapter given the fact that it worked with no driver needed on other laptops. Do I need an Ethernet driver or some sort of other thing to enable Ethernet on my laptop or is my laptop not supporting Ethernet at all?
Questa è una buona domanda?
Can you let us know the model number of the adapter you purchased, please?
Does it work if you try plugging in a known working ethernet cable into the adapter with the adapter plugged in? (make sure the other end of the ethernet cable is plugged in to the router/modem/network switch/etc.)

I tested the ethernet cable on another laptop. I also tested the adapter on the other laptop. Both work fine. Only on the ThinkBook it does not work.
