Has someone a recipe to run the fling on ESXi7.0U3 with a delock usb-c-to-ethernet-adapter with the AX88179 chip ?

The vendor delock isn't mentioned in requirements.

Export-esximageprofile on ESXi-7.0U3g-20328353-standard ended with the following issue.

Export-EsxImageProfile : Error retrieving file for VIB 'VMW_bootbank_vmkusb-nic-fling_1.10-1vmw.703.0.50.55634242': ("<zipfile.ZipExtFile name='vib20/vmkusb-nic-fling/VMW_bootbank_vmkusb-nic-fling_1.10-1vmw.703.0.50.55634242.vib' mode='r'

Has somebody used an adapter with the Aquantia AQC111U chipset and had good performance on that?

I tried that one here - - but unfortunately the performance was really bad. it was just half of what 1GbE nic can deliver...

I've read that some of you have used the qnap usb nic.
Has anybody ran iperf on that nic to check what the real performance is?

I want to know if that nic is doing better although it uses the same chipset...

I had something similar with a TP-LINK UE300 (RTL8153). On one of my ProDesk 600G3 DM It get'S only 512MBit via IPerf and on another Intel NUC derivate it get's 1GBit. Currently not sure what the problem is. Maybe USB3 related in combination with this dongle but an AX88179 get's 1GBit on the 600 G3.

I'm getting around only 125mbps down for TP-LINK UE300 on NUC6i3SYK. The upload speed can reach 400mbps.
(Connection speeds capped at 600 mbps down / 400 mbps up by my ISP)

Hello. Can the current driver be used for the new 7.0U3e?

Thank you :-)

Hello. Is it safe to use this latest version on 7.0U3e?

Thank you.

I just installed 7.0u3 and it recognised my Realtek based usb3 NIC, is this capability baked into the esxi now?

which nic exactly did you use? I ask because the realtek usb nics I am using aren't seen.
