I recently switched to a new laptop instead of a desktop, but still needed to use it to manage multiple networks and VLANs. So I bought myself a couple of the USB3-E1000 adapters and used the same approach to this as on my desktop, by installing Hyper-V and adding a virtual switch bound to an adapter. Then I should be able to add multiple virtual adapters and configure each with a VLAN ID like this:
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name AdminNet -SwitchName “VMSwitch”
Set-VMNetworkAdapterVlan -ManagementOS -VMNetworkAdapterName AdminNet -Access -VlanID 100
When I do this on the the USB3-E1000, it fails to allow any vlan tagged traffic through. This has always worked in the past on other adapters but doesn’t seem to be able to work on ASIX AX88179 based adapters (I have another from Startech and that displays the same symptoms). It only seems to want to work with the same VLAN ID that is set in the adapter properties in device manager.
I replaced the adapter in use by the virtual switch with an old Anker USB3 adapter I have which uses a Realtek driver, and that instantly worked across all the virtual adapters, so I know the config is working as expected just not the USB3-E1000.
Is there any way to configure the USB-E1000 to work with virtual adapters on different VLAN IDs?
