    Select Series USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

    USB-C is here and it is a real game changer!

    • New reversible Type C connector plugs in the first time, every time!
    • Use a single cable for power, video, networking, and data
    • USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ supports up to 10Gbps data rate
    • Charge and power devices with up to 100 watts of power

    Until this point we've had to deal with a number of different USB connector types with different shapes and sizes. One thing that is common among all the various USB Type A and Type B connectors is that they are all asymmetrical, which means that there is a top and a bottom, as anyone who has fumbled around trying to insert a USB cable by feel can attest. The old USB standards are also relatively slow and can carry very little charging power.

    The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in!

    In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air® featuring only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral devices.

    This 4-inch Gigabit Ethernet adapter features a male Type C connector on one end and a female RJ45 connector on the other end.

    Solid adaptor for Gigabit Ethernet speeds
    Works well, but slow to be recognized by the Mac.

    PROS: • well constructed materials
    • supports Gigabit Ethernet speeds
    * doesn't require a 3rd party driver to be installed

    CONS: • bulky design
    • takes 30 seconds to power up and be recognized by computer (seems to be a common issue with 3rd party adaptors utilizing the Realtek chipset + Apple's native driver, based on my testing various other adaptors from other vendors)

    5/5
    Works great with OSX Mavericks on the new 2015 MacBook and no driver was required.

    PROS: - Full gigabit speed (110-118 MB/s).

    - No driver required for OSX.

    CONS: - Only appears to support a 1500 MTU (no jumbp frames). It's possible installing a different driver may fix this.

    - USB-C plug height sticks up about 1mm higher than the edge of the new MacBook 2015.

    Great Price
    Great price for this dongle and works well, however USB-C end arrived a bit bent. I needed it desperately for work and this ethernet dongle worked, so I kept it. After a little more than three months it suddenly stopped working.

    PROS: Great Price, solid feel

    CONS: USB-C end seems very malleable (easily bent) , dongle a bit longer than needs to be

    Great Idea But Fails
    I have 2 of these adapters, they both connect great for about 5 minutes and then disconnect. I have the XPS 15 9550. Not sure if its a computer issue or product issue. I bought the adapter that dell sells as well from amazon for 50 bucks (20 less than normal price) and I dont have a single issue with it.

    PROS: Good design
    Lightweight


    CONS: Disconnects after 5 minutes or so

    will this support data transfer between macbook pros? i didn't even know this was potentially an issue but comments for a seemingly identical product on amazon (same specs) said it didn't work... i shouldn't need it often for internet but was definitely planning to use it to move 2008 mbp content to a 2016 mbp... thanks!
