We started using the US1GA30SXSC Fiber to USB-C converters.
I have to problem that every time I re-plug the converter to the USB port or restart the computer, Windows creates a new network adapter for it. If the network would run on DHCP this would be no problem, but we are running on static configuration. Thats causes the laptop to always lose its static IP because of the new adapter popping up.
We updated all drivers and firmware for the laptop but the problem is still ongoing.
Did someone faced this issue already and have solution for it?

After reviewing our product data and notes for the US1GA30SXSC, it seems that we have not seen this before. Thank you for confirming the latest drivers and firmware are installed on the computer. We can certainly take some time to understand what is occurring, and help find a solution.
