2018 Mac Mini ethernet problems
My work 2018 Mac Mini running Mojave 10.14.3 has Ethernet problems, 80-90% of the time in the AM when I come in it takes 2-5 min before the Ethernet adapter will show "connected" and work. I've tried different cables, a different switch in my office and even rebuilding the Location profile in the Network settings. I do not have any sleep or other power settings configured. Also sporadically on some days when I'm away from my desk from 20-60minutes or even longer I'll have the same issue and then I'll have a string of days without problems.
Any other ideas?
Further isolation testing, if possible, might include:
- Connect another device/computer on that cable to see if the same problems are experienced.
- Boot into Safe Mode to see if the problem still occurs
- Boot into recovery mode and use Safari or Terminal commands to check the port status. eg. networksetup -getinfo Ethernet
