Enjoy a Reliable Connection in Hotels, Airports, and More
By adding an Ethernet port to your ultra-slim laptop, notebook, or tablet, the USB Ethernet Adapter Gigabit USB 3.0 provides an alternative to connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi, which can be spotty and unreliable depending on your location.

    Linksys USB3GIG reviews

    USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT MAC COMPATIBLE Says "Works with MacBook Air, Chromebook or Ultrabook". Fails to mention that it ONLY works for MacOS upto 10.9. So this is not for anyone with a Mac newer than 2013, or anyone that has updated their OS.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does NOT included the latest driver for latest OSX. It works well once properly installed. What I want to focus on here is the driver software. I use it for my Macbook Pro that runs on OSX 10.11. The CD that comes with the adapter only includes the driver for 10.9. If you head to Linksys' website, you'd find that the latest version of the driver is only for OSX 10.9 as well. But it does mention Belkin has the beta version of the driver for 10.11. So you'd have to jump to another site to actually get the driver. It's just rather troublesome.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product, stay away! Horrible product. If it didn't cost more to ship back than the value of the product, I would have. Provided Mac driver does not support hotswap. This means every time you connect the device, you need to reboot. Their community forums offer a Realtek driver: This driver makes OSX crash when you connect the device. And lastly, a moderator on their forum links to a Belkin driver (as you can see, this is a rebrand). That driver breaks the Networking kernel extension and prevents Apple networking products from working. This is simply a horrible device.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't buy for Mac! For Windows, it's A+! Don't buy it if you have newer Mac. It has crippled my WiFi on MacBook Air 2017 (High Sierra OS), I had to re-install the whole OS, to make it work again. The installer says: "This driver is for Mac OS X 10.7 or newer versions on the Intel-based Mac". Well mine is 10.13 and it's not working. On my Windows 10 PC, it's working beautiful. No installation needed, and I got up to 700Mbit/s connected to a USB 3 port.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works awsome, no drivers need installed. This is awesome, just plug into usb port and connect ethernet cable. No drivers to install nothing to set up, it just works. I got 20 mbps download with usb 2.0 ports. This is the max speed I am paying for. I am happy with this plug and play product. I needed this since my on board ethernet chip died! I do use Mint 17.3, I am not sure what the disc is for that comes with the product, maybe a free Frisbee?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works like a charm I really dont know why ppl are saying it is not working with mac, it is flawless with el capitan and sierra as well, both (air and mbp tested). I didn't expected 1gig real throughput, i was able to gain 500+mbps which (obviously plugged in usb3 port), that all, I really recommend it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have bought from Linksys since 2001 because of their quality & simplicity, sleek design, and mostly great firmware updates. As an Information Technology Professional, I tested this dongle the same day I received it. Before purchasing, I read some reviews that may install doubt in some, and after testing it, so far only on PC, Windows 7 & 10, I can tell you it works flawlessly. I have not had an opportunity to try on a MAC yet, but I have little doubt that it will not not work. Highly recommend.
