Xcellon USB-EA overview

  • 1Description

Access networks and the Internet at reliable 10/100/1000 speeds with the USB 3.0 to Gigabit RJ45 Ethernet Adapter from Xcellon. This adapter connects to your Windows, Mac, Google Chrome, and Linux systems via an integrated 7.1" cable that sports a USB 3.0 Type-A connector. On the other end of the adapter is a single Ethernet port, which supports full-duplex operation and joins your system to the network using an optional RJ45 cable.

Once connected, two LED indicators notify you the connection is complete, and the adapter is sending and receiving data. For portability, it draws power from a USB bus-powered port without the need for carrying an external power adapter. Furthermore, Xcellon has outfitted the adapter with a compact aluminum housing that protects it and lets you easily take it on your travels.

Ethernet Connection
The USB-EA adapter adds a reliable, wired Gigabit Ethernet connection via your computer's powered USB port. You can connect to the Internet with this easy-to-use adapter in locations where there is no Wi-Fi signal or even if your computer doesn't have an Ethernet port.
Supports USB 3.0/2.0/1.1
The adapter supports SuperSpeed USB with data transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps. Backwards compatibility with Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 allow greater support with older systems.
Full-Duplex Operation
Unlike connecting to the Internet wirelessly, a wired connection allows you to send and receive data simultaneously. The USB-EA adapter provides you with a wired connection that assures you fast data transfer speeds, letting you stream HD content smoothly and game without lag.
Bus Powered
The USB-EA uses the power from your USB port. No other power source is necessary. Just plug it in to a powered USB port on your computer, and you're ready to go.
Compact Aluminum Housing
The compact aluminum housing can withstand the rigors of travel whether you carry the adapter in a computer bag or in your pocket.
LED Status Indicators
Blue (power), Green (connection), and yellow (activity) LED indicators let you know the status of your connection at all times.
Windows/Mac/Linux Compatible
The adapter can be used with a wide variety of operating systems. Simple instructions are included for downloading and installing the drivers for Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems.
Additional Features
The adapter supports a wide variety of additional features, including IPv4/IPv6 checksum offload, crossover detection and auto-correction, TCP large send offload and IEEE802.3az EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) that allows for a low power idle state. It also has Jumbo frame support and IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging support.

    Xcellon USB-EA reviews

    USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked flawlessly Literally, all I had to do was plug it into my USB 3 port, and connect to the network switch. No download, no install - not even a pop-up to acknowledge. Now, my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop can connect to Ethernet as well as wireless (why laptop manufacturers think Ethernet is dead I'll never know).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with iOS I actually got this for my iPhone. The fit and finish is not perfect, but its quite good. I like that the body is metal as it can get slightly warm when it is running hard. It is based on the Realtek RTL8153, and it is plug and play on iOS 10.3.3 and later. I tested it on an iPad running iOS 10.3.3 and an iPhone running the latest version of iOS 12. On iOS, you need to use the USB 3 adapter and have your device plugged in to external power. When you plug it in, an Ethernet tab appears in Settings and you can easily configure it if needed. It will automatically prioritise Ethernet over WiFi or cellular, so your WiFi bars or cellular connection will disappear from the status bar on the top when you have an active Ethernet connection and reappear when you dont. Even though I have wireless AC, Ethernet is full duplex and has a lot less latency. App updates, which can be quite large, download quickly, pings to my device are a lot quicker, and transferring large files to my device over the network takes far less time now. I also tested it on my Mac which already has built in Ethernet, and I tested it in Linux (SuSE Linux). It works reliably and is plug and play for both just as in iOS. No additional drivers or extra configuration needed.
