USB3-E100 MacBook Not Recognised

Hi, I have just bought a USB3-E1000. On installation it loads the software and I can see the hardware listed and driver. However, when I plug n the device I get no activity lights and it stops the wifi connection. If I go to preferences/network and try to add a service the AX88179 isn’t listed as a service just thunderbolt, wifi etc.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers.

Any help appreciated.

If you would, please give this a try. If the adapter still doesn’t work, please contact us directly at with the Amazon order number. I hope this helps. I look forward to hearing back from you soon!

Thank you,
