The USB 3.0 + Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt Adapter from Sonnet provides you a simple, economical way to connect one USB 3.0 device, and to add a Gigabit Ethernet interface to any Mac with a Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt port, or Windows computer with Thunderbolt 2 ports. This useful adapter offers native USB 3.0 support to ensure enhanced performance from the fast drives you connect, enabling data transfers at up to 350 MB/s. Featuring 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt technology, this compact adapter connects directly to your computer or at the end of a Thunderbolt device chain with its built-in Thunderbolt cable to enable fast data transfers between your drives, computer, and network. This adapter is bus-powered, so there's no need to connect an AC power adapter. It also supports 1000/100/10BaseT auto-negotiation and full/half duplex communication, enabling it to easily connect with networks at the high performance transmission mode supported.
USB 3.0 for Fast Performance and Common Connectivity
The adapter comes with USB 3.0 connectivity, although you can connect them to the USB 2.0 ports on your computer. This useful adapter offers native USB 3.0 support to ensure enhanced performance from the fast drives you connect, enabling data transfers at up to 350 MB/s. The adapter also works with multi-drive enclosures with hardware RAID controllers, too. This adapter also supports hubs and other USB 3.0 devices, and is backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices. If your computer already has USB 3.0 onboard, this adapter provides another handy port.
Gigabit Ethernet for Fast Wired Networking
Sonnet's USB 3.0+Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt adapter instantly bridges the gap left by the missing onboard port, plugging in between your computer's Thunderbolt port and the RJ-45 network connection, and enabling file access and sharing at up to 1 Gb/s. This Sonnet adapter supports 1000/100/10BaseT auto-negotiation and full/half duplex communication, enabling it to easily connect with networks at the high performance transmission mode supported. It also supports jumbo packet transfers (9000 byte packets compared to 1500 byte standard packets) to provide higher performance and reduced overhead when transferring large files. Handy LEDs indicate network activity and link speeds at a glance.
Simple Set Up
When used with a Mac computer, the USB 3.0 + Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt adapter requires no driver installation, as the necessary drivers are already installed. When connected to a Windows PC, a simple Ethernet driver download and installation is all that's required to get you going. Setup is simple, just configure the adapter settings through the OS X Network control panel or Windows device manager.
This device is bus-powered, so there's no need to connect an AC power adapter. Wherever you use it, the Sonnet USB 3.0+Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt adapter is a simple and cost-effective solution that enables you to connect your USB 3.0 peripheral and get connected to a wired network at the same time, without hassle.
