Max OS X: Tunderbolt Ethernet trouble shooting (via: Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/20

Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet AdapterEvery once in a while my Gigabit Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter would show this in the Network Settings:

Status: Cable Unplugged Either the cable for Thunderbolt Ethernet is not plugged in or the device at the other end is not responding.

That’s not much use: it does not tell if the Thunderbolt or the Ethernet side has a problem.

Luckily, the How to force Thunderbolt-ethernet connection when switching networks without restarting computer? at Ask Different indicates the System Information will give you more information about the Thunderbolt side of things.

If it is visible as Thunderbolt adapter, then the Ethernet side has an issue. And it had: somehow the CAT 5 connector didn’t connect nicely. Another CAT 5 cable worked fine.

If it hadn’t shown up, I’d need to replace the adapter.
