5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: Small, inexpensive, automatically sensed and set up by both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I just purchased a second unit to keep with my Surface 2 Pro. The first was for my Lenovo Yoga. It comes in handy when I need direct connectivity for configuring routers, firewalls, and other tech devices that don't lend themselves to wireless configuration or connectivity.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Needed an extra ethernet port on the little atom board I'm using as a linux router, this device works great. Using Debian - Jessie (currently testing) and works without any issues. A note about Edimax, I've used their little usb wireless nubs and they seem to work great as well. Good quality and low price.

Cons: Its white :|

Pros: It's a USB NIC

Cons: Doesn't work well with the Linux ARM kernel.

We are sorry that you can not use EU-4208 in Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Adapter

Pros: Good, small, and inexpensive adapter.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this adapter to connect to a diskless ThinClient which I'm turning into a router running pfSense, and needed a 2nd ethernet port. The adapter was recognized as ue0 and is being used as the WAN interface. So far it's running well.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for Wii U

Pros: Works fine with a Laptop but...

Cons: Simply does NOT work with Wii U. I purchased this specifically for the Wii U, but it does not work. The Wii U does not recognize the device at all.

Other Thoughts: I'm on the fence about returning this. It may come in handy one day. But it doesn't serve the purpose of which I purchased it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you can not use our EU-4208 USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter on your Wii U.

EU-4208 can only work with USB ports of computers for Ethernet connection. Unfortunately EU-4208 USB adapter can not work with other devices like Wii, Blu-Ray player, TV, DVD Player..etc because there is no driver and these devices will not recognize this USB adapter.

For any further assistance, you may contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with the issue.

Best regards,
