works with windows but not RT
This review is from: Diamond Multimedia UE3000 Diamond USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter ASIX AX88179 Chipset
Pros: This little adapter will work with your Windows device (laptop, disk top and tablet...so long as its not Windows8.x RT) It also will not work with Android devices, it does state that it will work with Mac but I have not tested that.
Cons: I primarily purchase this to get my Windows 8.1 RT tablet to run faster while online but MS does not allow it to work and the Manufacturer has No solutions to meet why MS will not allow it to work. So I tried it on my Android tablet and it did not even notice the adapter was plugged in, no device software to found to get it to work so that was also a no go.
Other Thoughts: The main reason for it not working is that Micro Soft will not allow it to work. Before MS got involved some users did have it working but then MS disabled the device on the RT platform so don't bother with this adapter if your trying to get a MS Surface to have Ethernet connectivity. It will work with laptops and desktops if you find yourself with a bad port.
