Thunderbolt Ethernet Adapter Says Cable Unplugged (When Not)

stevenforster1 suggests:

I was having this problem and even after following the above steps.  I then used the Help Center and found how to create a new “Bridge Virtual Network Interfaces” instruction.

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Network.
  2. Choose Manage Virtual Interfaces from the Action menu.
  3. Click Add (+), choose New Bridge, then select the interfaces to include in the bridge.

I deleted the profiles already there, added the Thunderbolt back in, hit apply and good to go now.

This worked for me.

Thanks. I've tried many things and this worked.

How do you do the last part? Can you include instructions on how to exactly “delete the profiles that were already there and [add] the thunderbolt back in”? Thank you!
