Now, you can easily connect to a Gigabit network through the USB-C™ or Thunderbolt™ 3 port on your laptop or desktop computer, and add connectivity for an additional USB (Type-A) peripheral device. This Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network adapter provides a reliable network connection without having to install drivers. It’s ready to go - with native driver support to ensure a quick setup. It's a great companion for your MacBook, Chromebook Pixel™, Dell™ XPS 12, Dell Latitude 12 7000 Series 2-in-1 or other device.
The USB-C network adapter supports full Gigabit bandwidth by harnessing the performance of USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps). You can quickly access very large files over the network at Gigabit speed.
Get up and running quickly. Simply plug the adapter into the USB Type-C™ port on your laptop and connect to your network. The network adapter chipset provides native driver support in Chrome OS™ and Windows® 8.1, and supports Mac OSX (10.10) with driver installation.
The USB-C connector is smaller and easier to use than previous USB connectors. It’s a reversible plug so you can connect to your devices with either side facing up, without frustration or the risk of port damage.
With a compact design, this USB-C network adapter is as portable as your laptop, perfect for ultra-portable devices that have a USB-C port, such as the MacBook and Chromebook Pixel™. The network adapter is bus-powered which makes it easy to connect when you’re on the go.
Some computers with USB Type-C only offer one port for external connectivity. This Ethernet adapter features a built-in USB Type-A port, giving you the freedom to attach an additional peripheral device, such as a USB mouse.
