Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although the packaging advertises win2k,XP,Vista,and MacOS10.x compatibility, I can confirm it also works "out of the box" on Ubuntu 10.10, appearing by default as eth2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on the WiiU I bought this item specifically for the WiiU as the wifi was flaky when playing Splatoon online. This plugs straight into one of the back USB ports and is detected by the console when setting up the network just like the official unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Am using Input Director to run 2 PCs and a laptop from one kboard/mouse. The laptop was wireless to the network but ID doesn't seem to like that and 'judders' the cursor on the laptop display. As no Ethernet port on the laptop i decided to use this adaptor to create a wired connection. Works on Win 7 without any need for the supplied drivers disk. ID also works fine after switching to wired. Success all round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works with just about every mainstream OS you could think of. It has a AX88772A chipset, so use your favourite search engine to find drivers and support (it also comes with a driver CD)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked fine for a few weeks but then suddenly doesn't work. I used several methods to determine what was a fault when the Internet stopped working and the problem was this adapter. It isn't built to last. A short term solution if anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with Raspberry Pi A+ Works out of the box with Raspberry Pi A+ and Raspbian, bus powered, no drivers required. Plug into USB port, hey presto, a network port. Pi fully accessible with SSH and VNC

Will it support a Raspberry Pi Zero. Use each R Pi Zero and camera (3) reading a gas/electric and PV meters using OpenCV sending data to a R Pi 3 for live display and thus downloading to Linux P C.

Hi, Please advise if I can connect my HP 4050n printer to the ethernet end and the usb end to my pc ? I use to use a router/hub but it seems to have died on me today.

This item is to provide an ethernet connection to your PC when it might not have an ethernet port. We cannot guarantee compatibility in your current use
