I knew that the only way to connect to internet was via WIFI.
But I had and stil have to access PC's using copper links.
I asked many times Mr Google for a solution something like an adapter USB-RJ45.
I was not mad to get such a device, but every weeks I tried using many different words almost always in french.
One day I found a post in a forum about tablets.
I discovered a strange name : Plugable USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapter.
Only one place to buy it : Amazon.co.uk
I place an order.
Less than one after the postman visit, I plugged the device on the TF201 USB port, and a RJ45 cable in a router empty slot.
Automagically the tablet wrote : Connected to Ethernet even after having disabled the WIFI port.
What a bliss, no need to read an english user manual, no risk to be confused between USB slot and RJ45 slot, this device performs exactly what I was expecting.
BTW the device hooks automatically on any DHCP server indpendently of the IP adress scheme.
Just what needs an old fellow like me.
Not a problem with wi fi available most the time - BUT then the wi fi went down and I was stranded. So thank heavens for companies like Plugable Technologies!
I checked out a few connectors on line, and bought another model first because it was cheaper, but then found that it needed setting up with a DVD, which all got overly complicated, and neither me nor my partner could get it to work. I returned it to Amazon and got a full refund. Money that I then spent on buying the Plugable USB. I admit I was a tad anxious after that because I had read that many connectors had issues with drivers and compatibility etc. So when Plugable Technologies connector arrived (really speedily, only 2 days to get to me) I took it out of the packet, plugged it into the USB and KABANG it worked, seamlessly and almost instantly. My heart was in my mouth for a moment, as it configured itself, but then it sprung into action. Phew and horrah were my reactions.
Its nice and neat and I like the cable version as it allows the bulky bit to be round the back of the macbook out of my way. The first one I bought was a plug in block that stuck out the side, demanding room and more easy to damage. The flexible cable eases both those issues.
I got so fed up dealing with a wireless connection, throughput issues, lag and at times constant buffering. I've always wanted to be able to use Ethernet on my tablet but, despite being very interested in tech and having knowledge on it, I never properly looked into it.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10" & discovered this adaptor simply by chance online. Absolutely love it!
Sounds obvious but plug an Ethernet cable into the socket, connect the USB end into an USB>Micro USB adaptor (I purchased this separately) then connect it to the device and within a few seconds a confirmation pops up saying "Ethernet connected".
The only thing to keep in mind is your battery will drain because you're using the port for connection.
Speed test before connection then after connection was well noticed (obviously depends on your current connection/bandwidth).
In summary I cannot fault this product. Very well built, very easy to connect and there's a solid connection when plugging in the Ethernet.
In my experience this Plugable USB to Lan Connector works absolutely perfectly. It comes with a mini CD containing drivers (if you need them), and there is further advice on the manufacturers web site, however I didn't need either. I did this: Turn on your Android and open "Settings", turn OFF "WiFi" and "Bluetooth". Open "More... Device" (note this is the s/w switch some manufacturers appear to be masking), press "Ethernet" and then tick "Use Ethernet". Now turn OFF your Android, plug in the USB to Lan adapter and re-start your Android.
I agree with one of the earlier reviewers, I now need a second Plugable USB to Lan connector to keep in my away/holiday bag.
The device does what it needs to do and I get decent speeds with it.
Unlike most products like this I appear to have got a legitimate ASIX chip and not a fake like a lot of other products in this price range.
