Interesting and frustrating:

bopper /home/jc #


lsusb | grep hub | sort gives
Code:

bopper /home/jc # lsusb | grep hub | sort
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 009 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


So, Bus 005 is the USB-3 hub.
The interesting thing is that I plugged into every USB port on the back of the box and none of them connect to Bus 005!

This motherboard has been around for awhile, so I think I'm sunk.

Featherfoot ... again, one, and only one, service should be providing 'net', so if you have wpa_supplicant, net.wlan0, and NetworkManager, in the runlevel, then these will conflict with one another.

If you want/need to use NetworkManager then you can't use netifrc, or wpa_supplicant, these will start a wpa_supplicant (and probably dhcpcd) instance on the interface, with obvious consequences if one is already runing.

As for switching between wired/wireless then you probably already have ifplugd (in the form of busybox) ...

Code:
% grep PLUG /etc/portage/savedconfig/sys-apps/busybox-1.28.0
CONFIG_IFPLUGD=y

That is the default, so unless you explicitly disabled yours should be set likewise. All you would need to do is create a symlink busybox => /usr/local/sbin/ifplugd. With netifrc you would then add modules_wlan0="plug" to conf.d/net and configure as you would for sys-apps/ifplugd. Not sure how NetworkManager intergrates with ifplugd so I can't help ITR.

HTH & best ... khay

Featherfoot,

Put the output of dmidecode onto a pastebin.

Its quite possible that your USB 3 in a header on your motherboard and you need a cable and backplate to bring it out.

Here is the pastebin output: https://pastebin.com/bNiN9PEf

A careful reading of the manual says that the port supports the USB-3 specification and is compatible with the USB-2/1.1 specification, whatever that means. I do know that it drives the WiFi adapter at full USB-2 speed.

Featherfoot,

I suspect that your USB bus 5 is only visible to USB 3 devices.
