The UtechSmart US-USB3-E1000 (ASIX AX88179 Chipset, USB to RJ45) is an easy way to gain wired gigabit network speeds for faster HD video streaming, gaming, web browsing, network storage and more.

Common uses include adding wired gigabit network support to Macbooks, UltraBooks, or notebooks with no Ethernet connection, or replacing or upgrading network adapters in desktop PCs. Backward compatible with USB 2.0 / 1.1 standards, also useful for adding network interfaces, and transferring files peer-to-peer over Ethernet. This product is NOT a solution for connecting a USB device like a printer to a network.


USB to RJ45 adapter supports Gigabit networking over USB 3.0.
Supports backpressure routing and IEEE 802.3x flow control for full-duplex (FDX) and half-duplex (HDX) systems.
Supports crossover detection and auto-correction and Wake-on-LAN (WOL).
Powered directly from the USB ports.
Supports IEEE 802.3az (Energy Efficient Ethernet).


Plug into any laptop or desktop currently limited to 10/100 Ethernet, and benefit from faster transfers on your Gigabit Ethernet network. USB 3 systems support theoretical speeds up to 5 GB/sec. , and USB 2.0 supports up to 480 Mb/sec. In practice, most machines will see up to a doubling of network speed by moving from 100Mbs Fast Ethernet to 1000Mbs Gigabit ethernet via USB 2,and could see more than twice that gain on USB 3.0

System Requirements

Supports Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / 7 / 8(32/64-bit), Mac OS 9 or higher.

5 out of 5 eggsThis one works with Windows 8.1

Pros: Easy to connect and then I went to the device manager and installed the driver that was on the CD. When the new driver loaded I got a 1000mb connection transfer speed, This shows up in the status of the connection.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This unit replaced the previously purchased Tripp-lite unit which never worked. That was just a waste of money.
By the way Tripp-lite replaced the unit with one that was suppose to be the same, but had no connection led lights. That too did not work. So they sent me a 2.0 usb unit and that did work, but only at 100mb.

5 out of 5 eggsIT WORKS!

Pros: I have Windows 8.1 and as soon as I plugged it into my Surface Pro 2, it connected and once I put in the driver that came with the unit it worked at 1gig transfer rate.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: I bought the Tripp-Lite USB 3 Gigabyte connector to the ethernet and it does not work with Windows 8.1. Buy this one and you will not have that problem
