Tp-link usb3 network adapter no more working

I have a tp-link usb3 gigabit to ethernet network adapter that always worked without problems. However, for some time now it has not been recognized in a USB port, then in another and at this time is only recognized in the last port of the laptop.
What could be happening? All usb ports are working normally with usb pen drives.
thanks for any help.

This is a very strange issue you are describing.

Try watching dmesg as you plug into a working port vs plugging into a broken port and compare the messages that show up. It may give some kind of error message that you can use to help diagnose the problem further.
