Section 1 - Product Overview
Introduction
Thank you for choosing the D-Link DUB-1312 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. The DUB-1312 is specifically designed to
plug into an available Universal Serial Bus (USB) port on a desktop, laptop, or netbook computer running Microsoft Windows
8/7/Vista/XP/2000, Mac OS X, or Linux. Based on the USB 3.0 standard, the DUB-1312 extends the transfer speed of earlier USB
Fast Ethernet adapters to true 1 Gbps connectivity. Power for the DUB-1312 is provided directly by the USB port, eliminating
the need for an external power adapter. It also supports USB energy-saving suspend and resume functions to minimize power
consumption, which is especially useful for laptop/notebook users.

Linux 2.6.14
This driver is designed for Kernel 2.6.14.x or above. To compile the provided Linux driver, you need the Linux 2.6 Kernel source.
Also, please make sure the kernel is built with “Support for Host-side, EHCI, OHCI, and UHCI” option. Please follow these steps.
1. Insert the CD into the CD drive of your computer and go to the Drivers\Linux\ directory.
2. Copy the Linux Driver folder from the CD to your temporary directory.
3. Go to the Linux Driver folder in your temporary directory and execute the following command to compile the driver.
[root@localhost template]# tar -xf DRIVER_SOURCE_PACKAGE.tar.bz2
4. Now, the driver source files should be extracted under the current directory.
Execute the following command to compile the driver:
[root@localhost template]# make
5. If the compilation is successful, the DUB-13X2.ko will be created under the current
directory.
If you wish to use the modprobe command to mount the driver, execute the following command to install the driver into your
Linux:

Section 2 - Installation
Connecting the Adapter to a Network
Attach an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the DUB-1312.
Attach the other end of the Ethernet cable to your network switch, hub, or
router. If your switch, hub, or router has ports with gigabit capability, you
should use these ports in order to achieve maximum data transfer speeds.

Section 2 - Installation
Completing the Installation
When the installation of the DUB-1312 is complete, the Connection Speed LED will illuminate solid orange when the DUB-1312
is connected to a 1 Gbps network and remains off when connected to a 10/100 Mbps network. The Link/ACT LED will be solid
green when a connection is present, and flash green when data is being transmitted or received. If both LEDs are unlit, there
may be a problem with the physical connection. Check the connection and cables between the DUB-1312 and your hub,
switch, or router. Also verify that your network hub, switch, or router is powered on.

Section 3 - Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Do I need to use a crossover cable or straight-through cable?
With most of D-Link’s switches/routers, the Ethernet ports are Auto MDI-II/MDI-X. This means the port will auto-detect the
cable type. Auto MDI-II/MDI-X ports may react differently if the Ethernet cable is not properly pinned. If you make your own
cables, it is very important that they follow the industry standard pin-out (568A and 568B).
Computer connections to a hub, switch, or router typically use a straight-through cable. When connecting a computer to
another computer or to an uplink port then a cross-over cable is typically required. Rule of thumb: ”If there is a link light, the
cable is right.”
Why isn’t my DUB-1312 achieving 1 Gbps speeds?
1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps) is the theoretical maximum speed of the gigabit Ethernet standard, and actual speeds may vary. Gigabit
connectivity is dependent on a number of factors, and just one weak link in your network can reduce data speeds. If you are
not achieving gigabit speeds, you should check the following:
• Ensure that the DUB-1312 is plugged in to a USB 3.0 port, and that the drivers for this port are correctly installed.
• Check your network cable. A cable of specification CAT 5e or above is required for gigabit speeds, with a maximum
length of 100 metres. Also check the cable for damage, or wear and tear.
• If you are connected to a switch, hub, or router, ensure that this device is also gigabit-capable.
• Network congestion can also affect data rates. Slower speeds may be due to heavy data traffic elsewhere on the network.

• Expand the Network Adapters heading by clicking on the plus (+) sign next to Network Adapters.
• Right-click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.
• The D-Link USB DUB-1312 should appear with a green and gold network adapter symbol.
• If the D-Link USB DUB-1312 in Device Manager appears with a bright yellow exclamation mark or a red x, there may be
a hardware conflict present.
Mac
• Click the Apple icon on the task bar, select System Preferences, and then click the Network icon.
• You will find that a new Ethernet network interface is available. It is usually named Ethernet Adapter (en1) or Ethernet
