SSR’s solution worked for me. Go to the ethernet chip manufactures website (https://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131) and download & install latest driver for your OS (make sure to remove the old driver first).

I got problem of link speed, it always show 100baseT only (no connection if manual set to 1000baseT) and same issue happened at both MacOS and Bootcamp (already using latest driver 2.16)
I tried external USB with same chip AX88179 without any issue and not sure if the internal LAN already defective or not.

You can get the AX88179 ethernet driver directly from the chip manufacturer’s web site (Asix). Here is the web page for various platforms including macOS Catalina, just pick the driver for your platform:

The Link in first comment is broken. Can I download a network driver for macOS Catalina?

Hi, Will the Venus power the new 16" MacBook Pro, which comes with a 96 watt charger?
