Display Port Adapter Inconsistent - Redacted

I’m trying to use the display port adapter to connect to an external monitor using one of the 3 video out compatible ports. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to want to connect consistently. I’ve gotten it to work once, and the monitor will wake as if it’s receiving a signal but then the video feed will never start. HDMI works without an issue. Has anyone had this problem?

I’m on Arch Linux with KDE Plasma 6 (wayland).

Update: I stumbled across another identical display port cable, and it appears the cable I was using might simply be bad. I’m going to give it some more testing.
