Ease of use USB to Ethernet LAN Adapter,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plugable USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter (ASIX AX88179 chipset, Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP, Linux, OS X, Chrome OS) (Personal Computers)
Having purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro system I was so impressed with the device that I thought to use it to replace my business notebook. However, even buying an expansion unit for it (that plugs into the USB port) I could only use WiFi in the office. Then I saw that I could obtain a USB 3.0 to Ethernet LAN network 'device' for a reasonable amount.
The device arrived with full technical notes, mini CD of software and the offer of help by the supplier should I need it.
I plugged the device straight into Surface Pro USB and connected a working LAN cable. THAT WAS ALL I NEEDED TO DO! Within seconds I was happily accessing data files on the LAN services offered by my business as well as browsing the web and sending/receiving emails. No need to load software, no need to wait for a support desk, it just worked.
Having been working in IT since 1970 this was probably the fastest and 'work first time' pieces of kit I have ever used! Technology can work well after all!
