USB C to Ethernet stops working after sleep

I have the Anker USB C to Ethernet adapter. It works well until the laptop goes to sleep. When I wake it back up, I have to unplug/replug the adapter in order for it to be recognized.

Is this a setting with Windows 10 or the laptop that I need to change?

Thanks much for any suggestions.

As far I consider this could be an issue of WIN10,
I am a LINUXER so these kind of problems are quite normal! :rofl:

If you get no satisfying answers from other WIN users here,
you should do more research on Win forums

There is no WiFi to this network adapter, only Ethernet. If I leave it for a long time, it often stops working; if I put it to sleep, it often does not work upon wake up.

Thanks for writing to AnkerDirect with you issue
