Product Description

Add a networkinterface to your computer via USB. Common uses include adding wired networksupport to Chromebooks and Android tablets, improving speeds vs. 10/100adapters and wireless networks, replacing a broken internal network card,adding a separately routable network interface, and transferring filespeer-to-peer over Ethernet. It is not a solution for connecting a USB devicelike a printer to a network.
Plug into any USB 2.0 laptop or desktop currently limited to 10/100 Ethernet,and benefit from faster transfers on your Gigabit ethernet network. USB 2.0supports theoretical speeds up to 480Mbs. In practice, most machines will seeup to a doubling of network speed by moving from 100Mbs Fast Ethernet to1000Mbs Gigabit ethernet via USB. Also works on 10/100 ethernet networks attheir native speeds.
