Product Details


Product Description

Features faster-than-wireless speeds and easy connectivity. The Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100 Network Adapter adds a Fast Ethernet (RJ45) capable port to any supported system. It uses the ASIX AX88772 chipset for widest possible compatibility. Note the adapter is not for network enabling USB devices, rather it's the other way around - it's a USB device that adds a fast wired network interface to supported computers, consoles, and mobile devices running network-capable operating systems. The unit features a compact external design. Two LEDs montior power and link activity. Powered by USB (no external power adapter needed).

Compatibility

Drivers built in -- no driver install required -- on Windows 8, Surface Pro, Mac OS Lion 10.7+, Nintendo Wii, Wii U, Linux 2.6.12+, ChromeBook, Chumby, and some other systems. On Windows 7, Vista 32/64-bit drivers are automatically provided via Windows Update. Windows XP, 2000, ME, and 98SE require driver install via download or included disk. Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.6 drivers via download. Open source driver in Linux kernels 2.6.12+.

Performance

Wired Ethernet via this adapter provides faster and more reliable network access than typical 802.11 wireless networking (up to 2-3x as fast). Particularly helpful for web video, downloads, and streaming. Useful to replace a broken network port, participate on multiple networks, or give virtual machines their own physical network connection.

In the box

Plugable USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet adapter with a USB 2.0 male A connector to the host and a RJ45 female connector to the network, driver disk, and quick start guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as stated for Wii + Wii U Sept. 6 2013
By Riaz A.
The description stated it has built in support for the wii and wii u and is cheaper than the official ninendo lan adapter. Works perfectly and have yet to have a problem with it yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a great product! May 26 2014
Verified Purchase
I personally hate to use wireless connections when there is an option to connect with a wire. Wireless is not 100% reliable while a copper wire is.

My WiiU had some issues keeping a great quality wireless connection so i bought this product to remedy the issue.

Easy plug and play, changed my connection settings in WiiU once installed and works like a charm.

Thank you for the great product, I will recommend this to anyone I know.

If this item does not work, visit the 'Plugable' website for instructions connecting to a modem or USB port. It worked well for me and saved a lot of frustration.
