5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Wii U

Pros: As some of you may know, the Wii U doesn't support Ethernet. As for the new Smash Bros. release, this USB to Ethernet has helped stop almost all of the frame drops I've been getting online.

Cons: It doesn't stop all of the lag, but for what it is, I have to give it 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I recommend getting it if your device, especially the Wii U, doesn't support Ethernet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product for ASUS tablet

Pros: Works great with my ASUS Transformer TF300T Tablet (Jelly Bean 4.2.1). No need to change any settings, the tablet recognizes the hard wire and is ready to use.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Before I purchased this item, I contacted the seller, Plugable Technologies via email to inquire if this adapter would work with my tablet and they responded that same day!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Nexus 7, 2012

Pros: The "Plugable" device allowed me to connect my Google Nexus 7 2012 version to a wired LAN. I used an OTG cable, the Plugable device, and a cat 5 cable.

Cons: I want to mention that an included driver disk comes on a mini-CD. That's mini, not full size CD. However, you can also download drivers from their web site.

Other Thoughts: I hooked my cat 5 cable directly to my router and it worked fine. This did not require any drivers to be loaded.
