This worked well to replace my failing ethernet port on my motherboard. I plugged it into a USB 3 port, connected my Cat 6E cable and powered up. Windows 10 used generic drivers to get some basic connection, then I updated the driver and got full speed, tested up to 1 Gbps using my fiber connection. I also booted into Linux (Mint and Ubuntu) and this was detected and worked correctly at high speed on initial bootup. It also works with my Chromebook. I tested it out on my phone and it did detect ethernet plugged in, but only gave me 100 Mbps.
This works under Windows 10, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android. I don't have a Nintendo Switch to test it out, but am sure it would work since the Switch runs a variation of Android.
This is a good adapter to use I have it connect to a game console with my 1GB internet service and it delivers full throttle on the console no lags, no glitches no nothing. And for Nintendo Switch users no threat the usb fits and its long enough no need to worry to get extension to connect inside the dock. Good device.
What more do you want? Switch immediately saw it and connected. Why pay more?
This has a blue USB-3 but the Switch only goes up to USB 2 / 100 mbps wired connection, but that's a reliable connection compared to WiFi.
Plus: this would work with any PC. So if your PC only has Wi-Fi this will get you a better, more consistent connection via the wire.
Does NOT automatically download drivers with windows 10! Website is unhelpful. Instead of drivers for this specific adapter only thing to download is the manual which makes no sense.
I purchased this because I was tired of dealing with lag while playing Smash Bros online. It works pretty well. The only issue is that I still will have occasional connectivity issues (very infrequently). This shows up on loading for me which usually is quick, but occasionally will not connect or take a bit of time. I have fiber, so it could be signal, but seems unlikely. Maybe you could find a better one for more dollars, but this works for me and my limited use application.
We used this with our Switch. It didn't need any drivers or special configuration. My son just plugged it in and he was good to go. Great choice.
Used it with my Macbook air - circa 2017 and works well. The ethernet cable fits very snugly inside the receptacle. No complaints as of right now
Can confirm this has the chip compatible with the Nintendo Switch. Tested and working! No longer receiving in-game disconnections.
Provides ethernet access via USB adapter. My new laptop doesn't have an RJ45 socket for a wired network connection. My current work location has very limited bandwidth over Wi-fi so I wanted something that would permit me to be able to access better bandwidth and network speed. This device fits the bill. Good quality...reasonable price. I'd buy it again if faced with similar circumstances.
