Just got a usb2 to ethernet adaptor. I am trying to connect the Moto E3 on wired ethernet but this is unsuccessful so far.

It does not seem to work like plug and play.

ifconfig does not shows eth0 in the list. (netcfg is not supported by version 6.0.)

I tried the Ethernet USBhost app but it just says Error. ALso tried setting the phone in airplane mode.

Has anyone made this phone working on wired ethernet? What could I check and try?

  • If the phone lacks the drivers for the USB Ethernet interface, it'll only work if you use a custom ROM that includes those drivers. – Dan Hulme Dec 6 '17 at 17:40
  • Thanks. I see. Would LineageOS work for this? – Noel Dec 6 '17 at 19:48
