[RESPONDED] Debian 11 - Ethernet Expansion Card Doesn't Work after Install

Hey y’all,

Bought a 12th gen, DIY framework laptop. I went through and installed Windows 11 and then Debian 11. I was able to install it with the Ethernet card, made sure to include the needed firmware but after installation, it doesn’t find any network. Lights are blinking on the Ethernet card but no wired connection. There are some messages during boot about thunderbolt 0-0: reading DROM failure. Not exactly sure where to go from here.

The other ports seem to work as well. Able to attach USB stick.

Thank you!
