5.0 out of 5 stars Works As It Should 8 April 2013
I have a Dell XPS Ultrabook with a USB 3.0 port but no Earthnet port. I therefore ordered this product to expand the capabilities of my new Ultrabook.

I am not a computer whizz but I found using this dongle type attachment very simple to install and use, when connecting it into a computer using Windows 7 Pro. I simply connected the adapter into the USB 3.0 port and Windows downloaded the required drivers and the dongle worked within a minute of its connection into the computer. It does come with a small driver disc, in case the computer you are using does not have the relevant drivers.

The adapter has been used on a Dell XPS Ultrabook which has limited USB ports. I bought the XPS wanting a small, highly portable computer, but was worried about the limited USB ports and the fact it had no Earthnet port. This simple and relatively small device helps alleviate the potential downside of the Dell Ultrabook ie. having only 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port. I have found in some London hotels that their WiFi capability is limited and sometimes in certain rooms, non existent. This "dongle" allows you to connect the computer into the wired broadband systems that the hotels provide via the Earthnet cable. Having recently stayed in such a hotel, I had the opportunity to try this device. All I can say is that it worked perfectly and allowed for a very fast broadband experience.

With the apparent quality, size and capabilities of this product, I cannot recommend the Anker Earthnet Adapter enough. It is relatively small and lightweight, has been easy to install, reliable and allows for super fast transfers via the USB 3.0 port. It is proving the perfect accompliment to my Ultrabook.

Highly Recommended.

Before I start this review I'd like to point out that Anker gave me this product in exchange for my honest feedback. I have not let the fact I received this item free of charge affect my views.

Owning a MacBook Air is a wonderful thing, not having any ports on it is a massive frustration. I frequently am expected to use a wired internet connection for security purposes so this adapter is just the ticket.

The Adapter itself is nice small and light yet still seems to have been made using high quality plastics which make it both appealing to the eye and hard wearing.

Installing the software is easy once it is downloaded off the website - although a CD is included incase you have access to an optical drive!

I was impressed by the speed of this dongle. At times I have access to 120+ mb per second internet connections and this definitely gave me a speed improvement over the previous USB 2.0 dongle that I was using.
Another neat feature is that there is a 12cm cable between the ethernet adapter and usb connection. This means that there is much more flexibility than some solid plastic dongles that don't have any cable in-between.
Product exterior - size comparisons, weight, finish, etc. - pictures or videos are even better

If you own a new Ultrabook or new Mac this could come in extremely handy as it is surprising to see how many offices still use ethernet connections rather than wireless. The fact that no technical knowledge is required to use it is a huge boon meaning it will probably be one of the more useful products you leave in your laptop bag. This is fully compatible with OS 9 and above on Mac and 2000 (XP) and above on windows!

Worked fine for 6 months, and then stopped working for no obvious reason. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.


After posting my original 1 star review, I was contacted by Anker, and they sent me a replacement unit within a few days. Very good customer service, thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, no drivers required 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
As plug and play devices go, this has been the easiest and quickest I have come across to install. It was simply a case of plugging it in and waiting a few seconds for Windows 8.1 to locate and install the drivers.

Quality-wise, the device is good looking, with a glossy finish to the main hub area with a number of LED indicator lights hidden beneath the black tinted plastic.

As for the speed, it's rated as 10/100/1000 gigabit, and it certainly connects to my Dell XPS 15 as and displays 1Gps, although I haven't as yet tested it for actual performance

I have experienced one issue, not with the device itself (hence it still receives 5-stars) but with Windows 8/8.1 and presumably windows 7 and maybe even earlier versions. When I used a laptop power profile other than High Performance the device would automatically turn itself off through Windows' built in USB power saving features. For some reason Windows assumes the device isn't being used after a few minutes and simply turns it off to save power, despite it flashing away transferring network data.

This can be easily fixed with a little know-how through the Windows Device Manager, find the ASIX (chipset used) network adapter properties, goto the power management tab and uncheck the "Allow computer to turn off this device...." option, apply and continue.

Overall, you can't go wrong with this device
