Trying to connect Galaxy s10 to ethernet. Many online forums say "any ethernet c adapter should work" but nothing happens. I have tried 5 adapters. One worked with my friend's s8 but not my s10. I wonder if there is some setting I should know about? Tried turning off wifi and using airplane mode.

Thanks! I have tried all of those things, and the ethernet remains greyed out.

you might have to connect your c adapter to get your phone to the Internet as it's also greyed out on my phone
