4 out of 5 eggs Works, BUT... 09/26/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RNF-405U Ethernet Adapter 10/ 100Mbps USB 2.0 1 x RJ45

Pros:

After having damaged my ethernet port, this part was a welcome replacement. Sure, it takes up a USB slot, but would I rather pay $200 to have Dell come replace the board? No way. Thanks to this part, I now have access to both the internet and network resources.

Cons:

Several have commented that this is Plug-and-Play... I didn't find this to be the case. I tried the drivers both from the CD and the website and got nowhere. I ended up going into the configuration settings and manually putting in an IP address, gateway, etc. It didn't take all that long, honestly, but it wasn't PnP for me.

Other Thoughts:

The ability to access the network and print from my laptop again for $9 and less than 30 minutes worth of work? I think I'll keep it.
