Ever tried ethernet via USB?


Rather than lug a laptop around, I’d love to take one of my Windows tablets. These have USB 3.0, but not an ethernet port, so I’m wondering if anyone has tried to use an ethernet-to-USB connector (like http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AQM8586).


Have a look at @Dominik_Fretz Community Hacks up on dozuki How to build a USB-Ethernet topside adapter it could be a good start for any modifications


Hi there, do you mind sharing whether or not the adapter worked for you? My Lenovo touch screen laptop does not have a USB either and I’m curious.



I bought a cheap Chromebook and it has the same issue. I picked up a USB-Ethernet adapter and it worked fine. The one that I purchased from a store locally was: the D-Link DUB-E100 (https://www.amazon.com/D-Link-DUB-E100-Fast-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B00006B7D8) but I’m sure anything else would work as well.

I purchased a USB to Ethernet cable for my tablet and it worked fine! I didn’t need to install any special drivers.
