Pluto SDR in Ethernet Adaptor Mode Randomly Has Adaptor Die

Hi all,

I am noticing that occasionally, the ethernet adaptor I am using with my Pluto randomly has no lights.  At that point, I have no way to get into the Pluto to troubleshoot.  This happens after the Pluto has been sitting idle with no TX or RX activity.  I am using a Startech USB3.0 to Gigabit Adaptor, USB31000S.  The power supply I am using is a Canakit 5V, 2.5A.  Does anyone know what is causing this or how to fix this?
