More Than Double Performance
Plug into any laptop or desktop currently limited to 10/100/1000 Ethernet or no Ethernet at all, and benefit from faster transfers on your 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet network. (Also works on 10/100/1000 Ethernet networks at their native speeds.) USB 3.0 systems support theoretical maximum transfer speeds up to 5Gbps and USB 2.0 supports up to 480Mbps.
Note: When accessing sites on the internet, the bandwidth provided by your internet service provider will likely determine your ultimate speeds. Testing in the Plugable lab using the iPerf application on a local server has yielded speeds up to 2.37Gbps. However, speeds will depend on the capabilities of your host system.
Quickly and easily add Ethernet connectivity, with performance up to 2.5Gbps to virtually any Mac, Windows, or Linux PC. Use either USB-C or USB 3.0 to connect, and connect instantly with built-in drivers on current versions of major operating systems.
- USB 3.0
- Thunderbolt 3
Note: Older versions of Windows, Linux, and macOS may require a driver download for the adapter to function. macOS will have limited functionality (1Gbps link rate, no jumbo frame support) until the driver is updated through separate install.
