Product Description

Plugable USB 2.0 Micro-B OTG 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter

hero

An Ethernet Adapter for Phones, Tablets, and Tiny Computers

The Plugable USB 2.0 OTG Micro-B to 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter (USB2-OTGE100) combines the compact external design and wide compatibility of our popular USB2-E100 adapter, with an OTG Micro-B connector.

This makes it a great choice for easy connection to compatible tablets, smartphones, and small computers like the Raspberry Pi Zero that support the ASIX AX88772A chipset. Wired Ethernet via this adapter can provide fast and reliable streaming, networking, internet browsing and more.

Some common uses include:

  • Replacing or adding a wired Ethernet connection
  • Connecting a compatible tablet or smartphone directly to a network through an Ethernet cable when WiFi is unavailable or a hard-wired connection is preferred
  • Improve connection speed and reliability for devices compared to most Wi-Fi networks
  • Add wired network capability to tablets, phones, and other compatible devices that have only wireless built-in

Not all Android devices are compatible with this adapter. For Android devices, please confirm if your phone or tablet is compatible with the ASIX AX88772A chipset before purchase. You can find the latest compatibility details in the Product Information box below under Specification Sheet.

If your Android phone/tablet already has the driver for this Ethernet adapter built in, it should work as soon as the adapter is plugged into a Micro USB port. Some Android devices don't have the driver built in. If this is the case for your device, this adapter will not work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful device for Nvidia Shield and Nexus 5 - but note micro USB simultaneous charging
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 January 2017
This is a great Ethernet adapter that has surpassed my expectations certainly in terms of performance and the range of devices it has supported.

The adapter is professionally packaged in a plastic moulded case and would make a nice present for an Android gaming fan who wants to reduce wireless ping times.

It's easy to install and for supported Android devices it's simply a case of plugging it into the micro USB port on the phone or tablet - the LED network activity lights flash after a couple of seconds and the Ethernet connection icon (see attached photo) should appear in the Android status bar.

I bought the adapter for an Nvidia Shield tablet so that ping lag when using Geforce Now would be reduced. The adapter works well in this regard and, clearly, makes a difference to both network stability and gaming performance including support for higher resolution game streams.

You should note however that the micro USB standard does not support multiple use of the Android phone or tablet micro USB port for data and charging at the same time. Using a micro USB Y cable with two micro USB inputs - one for a charger and one for the Ethernet adapter - will not help you. You will not be able to charge the tablet or phone using a micro USB charger whilst using the Ethernet adapter connected via micro USB. This is not a fault of the Ethernet adapter - it's part of the micro USB standard.

I found that the adapter also worked with my old and retired Nexus 5 which, courtesy of the adapter, is now working well as an Android media steamer with fast access via a wired connection to my router to a shared media hard drive. Incredible performance on the LAN and great internet performance too. I've attached a screenshot that shows the wired connection with the Nexus 5 and this adapter - it's maxing out my internet connection and there's a ping of 8ms.

With the Nexus 5, wireless charging is an option. With the Nvidia Shield only wired charging is available and, as above, you can't use this adapter and a micro USB charger with a Y cable at the same time. It just doesn't work. So the Shield will run down its battery pretty quickly if the display and GPU are working too hard.

There is a workaround however. The workaround is to use a Y cable that has a full sized USB input for the Ethernet adapter. You then need to buy a micro USB female to male USB adapter (not many choices available) to plug the Ethernet adapter into the Y cable's full sized USB female input. It's just an oddity of the micro USB standard.

The much better alternative would be to go for the full sized USB version of this device and use a Y cable that supports full sized USB and micro USB for charging. If you are going to be using the adapter with an Android device that doesn't support wireless charging (very few devices now do support wireless charging) I would recommend going for the full sized USB adapter and using a Y cable. I can confirm that the full sized USB adapter works with the Shield and with the Nexus 5 when using a Y cable.

As to which Android devices support this Ethernet adapter, it's trial and error. I had been told that this adapter worked with Nvidia Shield but I was very pleasantly surprised that it worked with my Nexus 5 too.

They key issue when selecting an Android compatible Ethernet adapter is to look for Asix support. Even then it's a gamble as to whether or not your device will support it but you may be surprised and it could be worth a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! and works with my OPO!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 July 2017
I was amazed that this turned up early (always nice when that happens). Initial impressions were really good, nicely packaged item, looks really well-made. Micro USB has a very firm connection, no danger of this falling out - I have had slack connectors but this is reassuringly firm, with a satisfying 'click' on connect. Some have mentioned it gets warm (it is supposed to) - it does, but not significantly hot. OK so the test, I plugged it into the micro USB slot on my Linx 10 Windows tablet, plugged in an Ethernet cable, and bam! connection straightaway. No messing about, no connection issues, no software issues, works straight out the box. I was connected to my works' network and the connection was super-fast. Didn't do a speed-test but wow! definitely did what it was supposed. LEDs flash and show it is connected and working.

The biggest surprise was that it also works with my (rooted) OnePlus One phone (Cyanogen 13 Android 6) which I wasn't expecting. I checked the Plugable website, and it said it wouldn't. I have attached a screengrab showing it connected and upgrading some apps from Google Play Store, and photos of the adapter plugged in with lights glowing (apologies for quality). I checked this was definitely connected by switching it to airplane mode before doing so; our WiFi is restricted at work so can't really log in for more than 10 seconds anyway. It definitely works. Can't comment about whether a non-rooted example would work, just that mine did. I am now considering buying another for my phone! Speeds looked really good too, very fast connection.Again, didn't test it but hope this helps.

I decided to buy this on the strength of the reviews, I'm glad I did. Definitely worth it.
