    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.

    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!

    BEST ANSWER: Yes. It works with the late 2016 MacBook Pros and Windows PCs. I haven't tried it with the 12 inch MacBook. I haven't tried it with USB-C/USB 3.1 Gen 1, in other words the 5Gbps version of USB-C. I believe the Apple Late 2016 MBP ports support Gen 2 -- as does my Dell XPS 15 9550.

    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.

    Late 2016 Macbook pro with touch bar compatibility
    works absolutely excellent with 2016 macbook pro with touch bar, i have been very hesitant to make usb-c purchases for my new macbook after reading all of these negative reviews on other products that "insinuate" that my computer will not be compatible well i am here to tell all my apple fans that this most certainly works with 2016 macbook pro with touch bar, NO connectivity issues, It stays connected when plugged in, NO intermittent connectivity issues! This ethernet adapter works flawlessly for me and i hope it does the same for you, I also purchased the usb-c to SATA HDD/SSD adapter and that also works perfectly as well. its crazy how i read reviews and wait to buy things and then i get them and they work absolutely i almost forgot to write a review!! Hope this helps anyone who is working with the new Macbook pro's, ps ps the New Macbook Pro's are super legit.

    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)

    Gigabit on Macbook pro late 2016 (no touchbar)
    Works without drivers on my late 2016 macbook pro.

    Shows as 10/100/1000 ethernet.

    There is a green indicator light when its on and another blinking green indicator when it is receiving data.

    It gets a little warm (not too hot) when its actively receiving and sending bits.

    Great product and great price.

    cons: depending on your RJ45 jack, it can be a tight squeze to get your cable out of plug. I was afraid to of breaking the adapter.

    Works great on Macs and PCs
    I've been using USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 for more than a year on my Dell XPS 15 9550. I bought other ethernet adapters before I got this one well over six months ago and none of them worked properly. This one always worked well with my Windows PC. Much more recently I tested the "late 2016" MacBook Pro 15 and 13. Monoprice's inexpensive gigabit Ethernet adapter works perfectly fine on Macs too. It's rock solid. Compare with products from other manufacturers and they are at least eight dollars more, some as much is $28 more. When this product briefly came back in stock a few weeks ago I grabbed two more, so I have three now.

    Work Perfectly
    This works perfectly with my new MacBook Pro. It has green network indicator lights which are a plus. No need to invest in higher priced options.

    Plug & Go
    Simple to use: plug one end into the MBPro 15" (Late 2016 model with Macos 10.12.3) and the other end into an Ethernet cable, and you're good to go.

    No drivers needed to be installed by me.

    The little plastic box (Ethernet end) gets a little warm, but not hot.

    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

    CONS: Disconnects after 5 minutes or so

    Awful, cheap and barely work. Don't buy these. I'm sure there are some out there that work, these clearly do not.
