drivers – Can’t get RTL8153 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter USB 3.0 working on Ubuntu 20.04

I am striving to get a RTL8153 working.
I can see it as a USB:

~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0bda:8153 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8153 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 2109:0817 VIA Labs, Inc. USB3.0 Hub             
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 05ac:0250 Apple, Inc. Aluminium Keyboard (ISO)
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 046d:c542 Logitech, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05ac:1006 Apple, Inc. Hub in Aluminum Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 010: ID 2109:2817 VIA Labs, Inc. USB2.0 Hub             
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 8087:0026 Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I can see the module is loaded, but not used:

~$ lsmod | grep r8152
r8152                  77824  0
mii                    20480  1 r8152

I can see the hardware listed:

~$ lshw -class network
       description: Ethernet interface

I can see the interface configuration:

~$ ifconfig
enx4ce173421ae9: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        ether 4c:e1:73:42:1a:e9  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)

        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

I can’t bring the interface up:

~$ sudo ip link set enx4ce173421ae9 up
menks@vivo:~$ ip -br -c link show
lo               UNKNOWN        00:00:00:00:00:00 <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> 
wlo1             UP             bc:17:b8:14:53:bb <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> 
enx4ce173421ae9  DOWN           4c:e1:73:42:1a:e9 <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP>

I can see that it is missconfigured:

$ resolvectl status
Link 4 (enx4ce173421ae9)
      Current Scopes: none
DefaultRoute setting: no  
       LLMNR setting: yes 
MulticastDNS setting: no  
  DNSOverTLS setting: no  
      DNSSEC setting: no  
    DNSSEC supported: no  

Any clue about how to configure it?
