Disable USB audio routing: ON

Show all ANRs: ON

  • With "port" you mean an RJ45 Ethernet port, right? For doing so you need an USB Ethernet adapter and an USB OTG cable. Of course this requires that the device supports USB-OTG and USB-Ethernet adapters. – Robert Jun 19 '19 at 18:16
  • Possible duplicate of Which USB-C to RJ45 adapter for SONY Xperia XZ Just the device is different, which does not make a difference - it works for an device or not. – Robert Jun 19 '19 at 18:40

Sorry I violated the forum's strict posting rules.... I found answers to both my questions on a couple of other forums - so, sharing KNOWLEDGE 1. both my son's WIKO and my SONY XPERIA XZ have reportedly had the driver removed or incapacitated in the Linux kernel and as neither phone is ROOTed there's no way strightforward way to install a driver 2. and yes Robert, I meant the RJ45 Ethernet port
