USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Adapter – 10/100/1000

USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Adapter – 10/100/1000 Mbps
StarTech ID: USB31000NDS
The USB31000NDS USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter adds a single RJ45 Ethernet port to a USBenabled computer system, with support for Gigabit network connections at full bandwidth when used with a USB 3.0
host connection, unlike USB 2.0 adapters.
This compact USB 3.0 NIC works with 10/100/1000 Mbps networks and offers backward compatibility with USB
2.0/1.x computer systems (speed limited by USB bus), making it an ideal portable replacement LAN adapter or
laptop accessory. Support for features such as Jumbo Frames, VLAN tagging and Wake on LAN (WOL), provides
versatile Gigabit network performance for home or business use.
Backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
