    Hi all
    I was using Nexus 6P device before using OnePlus 5, I used to connect to internet using USB Ethernet adapter [in places with no wifi & available LAN cable] and it was working perfectly. But when tried to use it with OnePlus 5 and enabling USB OTG, the ethernet adapter LED is on but still can not connect to the Internet & no any icons that shows that OnePlus has identified the Ethernet adapter.
    Is Ethernet support removed from the OS or does it need to be enabled??
    any idea?

    I just bought an adapter and tried it because I wanted to do a network scan without having to boot up my laptop but it doesn't work. So it seems as if you're right but why???

    I think many mobile phone makers removed Ethernet support. May be because most people don't use it.
    till now only Google mobile phones still have it supported. also tried Huwaei mate 8 pro, it works but only with one Ethernet adapters.
    Samsung doesn't support it too (galaxy s6, s7, Note 3, Note 4)
    have you tried other working mobile phones?
    some people suggested using a custom kernel like Boeffla Kernel to enable it, I tried but I couldn't get it enabled.

    Well, I have found a working adapter ;-) It's from Apple. There's no setting in Oxygen OS but it works as a charm. Model-No A1277. It's Ethernet to USB-A. But it works with USB-A to USB-C Adapter (Used the one from Samsung)
