Ethernet port not found

Booted up a RockPi X and can’t seem to detect the Ethernet port.
The pre-loaded Windows image doesn’t see the adapter, and neither does a vanilla Debian image.
Do you need special drivers for the adapter?

PS: I don’t see any lights either on the RJ45 jack. I have double checked the cable/switch with other devices.

It’s a pcie ethernet phy initialize issue in the latest 0726 bios(hardware reset or software reset). It was already fixed in the previous version but now come up again. A new bios version will be uploaded with the fix. I will update later.

You can download and update the bios from:

Just flashed the latest ROCKPI_V12_X64_20200821.bin and have a working Ethernet port.
