    Can this be plugged into a Samsung S8 to a laptop to use the phone's data connection for internet?
    Kevin N on Mar 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Use the cable that came with the cellphone to connect to the laptop USB port. Turn on tethering in the cellphone. An Ethernet adapter is not necessary.

    Has Anyone ever used these to power nest IQ cameras?

    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!
    Michelle Z on Dec 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. This is meant to be connected to a switch or a router to gain network connectivity. From there you may transfer data as necessary through network sharing. I hope this helps, thank you!
    Can I use this to connect a Verizon hotspot (Netgear 7730L) , with a USB-C output, directly to my router, to create a internet bridge?
    Mark B on Sep 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It probably can be done, but the 7730L is not meant to be your home internet connection. It seems like you are trying to eliminate the need for a data plan.
    Can you use this to run internet connection into a phone when I have no service or over the data limit?
    A shopper on Aug 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No. This just connects hardware with a USB-C connector to a hardwired connection.
    whats the maximum frame size supported?

    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 fine..ps. 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)

    works as well as my ethernet
    i have a gigabit router and mostly ethernet setups for my desktops and laptops in the office. who ever thought up the idea of removing ethernet ports from today's laptops? :) got this monoprice ethernet / usb-c adapter and also a similar one from anker. they both worked equally great. the monoprice is plastic and has a dim light that flashes within the body. the anker is more "apple" in look with a polished steel body. but the monoprice is less expensive with equal functionality. works great with my HP envy x360 i got from costco.

    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.

    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
