Add an Ethernet network interface to any USB enabled computer
The Accell USB 2.0 (Type-A) to Gigabit Ethernet adapter easily converts a computer's USB port into a 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet port. This adapter will add a 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet connection to a computer. It can also improve the connectivity speed of your computer over its existing 100Mbps Fast Ethernet port or when using a Wi-Fi 802.11 wireless network.
This adapter is fully backwards compatible with the USB specification 1.0 and 1.1 and works with all USB 3.0 enabled computers at USB 2.0 speeds. Its compact and highly portable design makes this adapter the perfect companion for a notebook or ultrabook computer.
Works but disapointed
This review is from: Accell J141B-001B USB 2.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
Pros: Provides a Gigabit Ethernet Adapter to my ultrabook
Cons: This device is USB 2.0 it would be better if it were 3.0
Other Thoughts: I purchased this in an attempt to PXE boot a Lenovo Yoga. After attempting to do so I found this device will not allow a Lenovo Yoga to PXE boot. I have not yet tried on another model. The lack of Windows 8 driver support is also very disapointing. I have to use a usb flash drive to manually load the drivers for my wifi so that windows can find the drivers. The drivers download from the manufacturers website do not work. I would recommend a different brand of USB to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. The only reason I did not return this device is because I needed it once I was able to get it working.
