Asus XG-C100C 10G ethernet card on Ubuntu 18.04

Is there anything you need to do to get this network card working in 18.04? It was working fine in 16.04 with the “atlantic” driver built from sources provided by Asus. After upgrading to 18.04, it now seems to be included in Ubuntu, but the OS thinks the ethernet link is down.

There were bigger issues with networking. It wouldn’t work with the built in gigabit ethernet port either. I had to setup netplan to get that working. However, for the 10G card, running “networkctl” it shows “no-carrier” / “configuring” for this interface, even if the ethernet cable is connected.

Am I missing something? or is there a bug?

Also, do I now need to remove any packages to get rid of the old style “ifup / ifdown” and avoid any conflicts with netplan?
