You can set it up one of 2 ways, though which one depend on how your router is configured. If your router runs stock settings then you should be able to simply push the WPS button on the router then push and hold the WPS button on the iOGear Ethernet 2 Wifi and it is supposed to connect automatically. I followed the owners manual to set up the device manually because I have my own passwords and such I needed to program them into the iOGear device.The manual is easy to follow...... however, HERE IS THE TRICK:Once you have the device programmed and you are ready to make your Wifi connection to the router, PUSH AND HOLD the WPS/RESET button until the light near that button starts flashing. Once that is done you can let go and it should sync up to the router. I had to be patient and it took some trial and error because the manual does not describe the "PUSH AND HOLD" part.As others have noted it seems to run a little hot even when not transmitting data, so I simply unplug the power cord from the device when i'm not printing. I could only imagine how hot this thing would get downloading movies or gaming. It is definitely not built robust for that sort of thing, nor does the price point promise such performance. If the thing was a little bit larger with a heatsink/cooling system built in then I would try it in other applications than a printer.



I was looking for a way to use my hotspot to cover my entire house.I connected this to my Luma router to spread the signal from my ZTE Warp to my entire house. I manually set up the IOGEAR because my first attempt at using the WPS button did not work. I prefer to set things up manually anyway. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.I found a location in my house that had the strongest signal and placed the hotspot, Luma, and IOGEAR in that location. I even plugged the IOGEAR USB cable into the Luma to take power from it reducing the number of power outlets required.Using Speedtest.net to check performance. I connected to the ZTE Wrap directly and then to the Luma. The speeds were equivalent. No real loss going through the IOGEAR and Luma router.My next step will be to buy an antenna for the ZTE Warp. If I can increase the bars I may get better throughput.Hope this helps others solve similar issues.



Bought 2 units to connect Outback Solar Controllers to my network. A bit pricey for what they do, but they seemed the best option at the time. Set up was well documented and not difficult. They both worked as advertised. Both got unexpectedly warm and one quit working within a month. It would not connect to anything even after a factory reset. The units have a flashing LED for diagnostic purposes which leaves a bit to be desired when the flashing doesn't seem to match any of the documented patterns. Spoke to IO Gear Tech Support, but their level 1 person just walked me through all of the things I had already done and finally just said "return it". Did an Amazon return on the defective one. Love Amazon because they are usually so easy to deal with. Finally just ran some Cat6 instead since portability was not a requirement. Much harder to do, but unmatched in reliability. Just placed the second one back into into service for another purpose. So far, it seems to be stable.

We wanted a Roku TV with a hard wired internet connection because they are more reliable where the TV is going. But none of the TVs in our price range had a Ethernet port. After some research, I found this was a common complaint by consumers on new NON 4K TV’s. And this adaptor was recommended on a Roku TV community website. We chose a RCA Roku TV, because it had all the other ports we wanted and the USB port needed for this dongle. Once your TV is up and running, you just plug the adapter into the USB slot. And then go into the TV Settings -> System settings -> Power -> System Restart. Let the TV complete its power cycle, and then under internet connections you will see it says WIRED connection. A brilliant easy and affordable resolution!



I have a ROKU tv with built-in wireless. Unfortunately my TV is located in a part of the house where Wi-Fi does not reach. I happened to have two powerline adapters so I decided to take a chance and try this USB adapter. I plugged it into the TV, connected the ethernet cord to the powerline adapter. I turned the TV on and initially it did not see the adapter at all, in fact you will not see it listed initially. I went into System -> Reset Network and the TV warned that all network settings would be reset. I clicked OK, the TV rebooted and when it came back on it was using the USB ethernet adapter which was connected to my home network through the powerline adapter! It works PERFECTLY, Hulu, Netflix and all other channels work much smoother.



I tried to use this in September to help with my wifi/internet issues while teaching from home. It did not work with my chromebook. I did email the company and they suggested a few ways to try to get it to work. However, by then my wifi/internet issue had been resolved, so I never tried the suggestions. It's possible that I would have been able to get it to work, but I did not have the extra time to spend trying once the wifi was fixed.I gave 3 stars as an average of the usefulness of the item and the response of the company.

Interferes with wireless keyboard and mouse. Purchased for use with Surface Pro. Works great for high speed LAN connectivity and makes a better experience with Teams meetings. However, whenever it is plugged in and in use, the Logitech keyboard and mouse combo become erratic in movement or typing now. These use a small USB transceiver, in the port right next to the ethernet adapter. It makes the mouse and keyboard unusable, glitchy, and super slow. I dont have another USB port on the opposite side of the surface to test out, but I'm inclined to suspect there is an EMI issue impacting the transceiver for the Logitech gear, being that close to the ethernet adapter. Plan accordingly.



I purchased this to use my laptop on ethernet connections when available for faster internet speeds. Even thought this is a Microsoft Surface adapter, I've tried it on an Dell XPS 15, XPS 13, Razer Stealth, etc and it all functions without a flaw. There's no drivers that need to be installed, just plug and play! This is a small slim, and well built adapter that can fit in a travel bag. Great!



This would have been awesome BUT they aren't compatible with a Surface RT. Bummer.

I am reluctantly adapting to the USB Type-C standard. In my work, when I go into the field, I literally have to be prepared for anything to do with computers. In some of the environments I go to, WiFi is forbidden, restricted or not available to me, but I can get a cable connection. Likewise, when travelling I occasionally encounter motels that have lousy WiFi, but still offer cable connectivity. I always had a USB-Type A Ethernet adapter with me, but as laptops have become smaller, lighter and connector poor, I needed a Type-C adapter. This is it. With Windows 10, it is entirely Plug ‘n Play. Plug it in, connect a live Ethernet cable, change your internal connection setting and you’re good to go. As with all the StarTech products I’ve used construction quality is top-notch. This one goes in the travel kit, though if I find a Type-C hub with more ports and Ethernet, it may8 be supplanted.Jerry



Used to hard wire Mac laptop computer. Had tech company hard wire, and this is item they used. Sometimes it gets hot, but not all the time. Works great.



Works great when it works, which is most of the time. On long transfers it dies, so I was unable to use it to run backups across my internal network, and when the system goes to sleep, the network sometimes doesn't work after the system wakes up unless you unplug it and plug it back in. Tested on Windows 10 on an ASUS laptop.

Sometimes it works. Other times it's touchy, literally, as in if you touch the cord wrong everything stops. Better than what I had before.



This USB network card works on a Toshiba Encore WT8-32A 8" tablet running Windows 8.1 Pluggable is really a fantastic company and I love their stuff. If I had one complaint it would be that the actual cable is very thin and that the chip inside is only 10/100BaseT where we could probably get a little more speed out of it if it was just a slow form of gigabit. But it's still fantastic to have it for windows updates and such.



only thing that would make it better si if it had a port to plug a charger into it. my tablet only has one port so its either internet or charge. kinda need both at same time.

The wireless range leaves much to be desired. The application on the web is very simple and poor. The reports generated will not allow editing to improve the conclusions. The concept is fantastic.



For pairing read the other guys review... However WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE????



This device is primarily for remote troubleshooting. If you don't need that functionality, there are plenty of other great Fluke meters to look at.

Works as expected!



works great and does what it is supposed to do at an affordable price.



In a true Gigabit Ethernet connection the Tripp Lite U436-06N-G-C adapter does heat up a little bit. I do wish the outer shell was made of AL and not plastic. What I do love about this Ethernet adapter is that it has activity lights which none of the other USB C Ethernet adapters out there have. I do not use the charge port because the 60W max is only for MacBooks and not MacBook Pros. A bonus is that it has a 3 year warranty (if you bought it after 2015, according to Tripp Lite.)Overall, good quality, great features, warranty and performance!

Backstory: New Lenovo 900 laptop with USB-C port. Needed a USB-C to Displayport connection for an external monitor. I ended up getting 4 different USB-C to Displayport adapters (male USB-C connector on one end and a female displayport plug on the other). Two of them didn't work at all, one of them caused graphical artifacts, and the last worked fine about 50% of the time but sometimes had graphical artifacts or would intermittently drop the connection for 5 seconds or so, causing the monitor to go black.Finally I decided to just spend a little more and buy this cable. Worked perfectly out of the box. No artifacts, no connectivity issues, etc. Definitely worth the extra $. I just wish I hadn't decided to get 4 separate adapters before finally just trying a cable.The cable feels like it has good build quality as well. Nice solid plug attach points, etc.



I tried a few of these adapters and finally found one that worked without interruption, Works great.



Did the job
