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 Works well. Improves speeds. Feb. 6 2014

This adapter has worked exactly as I had hoped it would. It allows me to hit download speeds of 1-2 Mb/s . On wifi I would be lucky to hit 150 kb/s. I did not have to fiddle around with any internet settings to get it to work. Once I plugged it into my MacBook Air it worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worked with my WII Feb. 2 2014
Verified Purchase
I am using the Wii as our Netflix client box for our old tube TV, and I wanted a better network connection than Wifi.

So I bought this little doohickey, and hooked it up to the Wii on one side, and a power-line networking gizmo on the other.

It works fine, the power line connection seems to be getting about 50 Mb/s, but that's enough for the SD video we are pushing through it.

As far as gaming is concerned, we don't notice any difference, we were never into any network centric games on the Wii.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blazing fast Feb. 1 2014

I ordered one of these for an aging desktop that still runs fine, but for which the original LAN adapter just died. Wasn't sure what to expect from this... didn't want wireless speeds with an ethernet connection, but I figured I try this and see how it went.

Simple installation: just install drivers and plug into a USB. Amazingly, my internet connection speeds are as fast if not faster than before (around 16-17 mpbs according to [...]. I highly recommend this item. The customer svc from Pluggable was excellent as well.
