Solved a Router Problem

I needed to connect my RJ45 FiOS internet cable directly to my laptop in order to get top speed from the FiOS service. My laptop did NOT have a RJ45 port so this adapter, converting RJ45 to USB, solved the problem. Definitely Plug 'n Play installation.

great product, great price

It works. Dongle design is the better than straight adapter which may put strain on USB input jack on laptop.

I have three old laptops/netbooks that I now use for downloading cameras simultaneously while on location at multi day events. These devices work perfectly. There were some negative reviews, but I have no issues so far. They do exactly what they're supposed to, turn a USB port into a Gigabit Ethernet port. I'm using them in USB 2.0 ports and they transfer data as fast as USB 2.0 can send it and didn't slow down at all during multiple 60 GB transfers.

Working well for weeks
