I have purchased two of these adapters and am very happy with them both. I've also purchased two other kinds before I found this one, one had a cd that needed to be downloaded and caused my tablet to not run well. The other one looked similar to this one, but it did not last as long. If need to buy another Ethernet adapter, I will buy this one.
Plugged the adapter into my desktop and Windows 10 reads it as AXIS AX88772 Fast Ethernet
This is THE driver that Wii/WiiU consoles use. No other drivers in this series will work (AX88772A, AX88772B, AX88772C, ect)
The WiiU uses an HTML 5 browser to load content online. However, when trying to test speeds, it will run out of available memory and not complete the test.
Started online games at 7:25pm 5/18/2016 After an hour of gameplay, there was moderate to no lag on 1v1 For Glory. Your mileage may very. Using a 10ft Cat5e cable.
Thank you Monoprice for making this product readily available at a reasonable price.
PROS: Matte Black finish. Will not leave fingerprint smudge. Well built. Does not rattle when you shake it. (Not that it should) Slim design. Way smaller than other comparable devices. Price. Best deal around.
CONS: Packaging is heat-pressed around the entire edge. You will need scissors or a box cutter to open Does not have Official Nintendo Seal Did not come with a bag of chips.
My child's Wii U was not keeping its connection to the home WiFi. I purchased a powerline adapter, then I realized there is no ethernet port available. I tried some similar products purchased locally, but they did not work with the Wii U. I bought this adapter, and it worked immediately. All I did was plug the USB to the Wii U and the ethernet port to the powerline adapter. Streaming Netflix no longer buffers or loses connection.
It does this sneaky thing where it drops the connection if you move it ever so slightly, or on it's own accord. It appears that the USB cord is very fragile and disconnects internally somewhere if you move it. I've had it less than a year and now. This is ineffective for online Wii U and Wii games.
