USB3 problems - scalextrix - 08-22-2018

When I plug any storage device into the USB3 port any ssh session is aborted.  Im using Ubuntu 64bit minimal = Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.132-1075-rockchip-ayufan-ga83beded8524 aarch64)

One device is an SSD that is using UAS, I know that is a problem but there is no /etc/modprobe.d/rk3328-usb-storage-quirks.conf file as in this thread:

Adding it does not solve the problem even when resarting twice (yes, I did!).

However even plugging a standard USB pen drive that does not use UAS still causes the SSH session to drop, and even when I manage to SSH back in, the terminal is really slow, as soon as the pen drive is removed, things go back to normal.

Putting any drive in the USB2 port, has none of these impacts, including the SSD.

I have spend a while configuring a bunch of stuff on this distro now, only to find this new quirk, can anyone give some pointers as to how I can get the USB3 working properly please?

EDIT: I forgot to say the network connection ison a WiFi USB donglein one of the USB2 ports.

Ok I got this kinda-sorta working by creating:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/rk3328-usb-storage-quirks.conf
and adding my device

And then
sudo update-initramfs -u

but the ssh is still laggy, its nowhere near as responsive as with the drive in the USB2 port

EDIT: No this isnt resolved after about 20 minutes ssh was unable to connect, when I logged in locally there was no connection on the wifi at all.

This was caused by the WiFi adapter being used, hard wired to router there are no issues with the USB3 port
