Amazonbasics Usb 3.0 To Ethernet Driver [UPD]
I downloaded the software from the website, but when I plug in the ethernet nothing happens. Neither of the lights on the converter will turn on, and under my network preferences I do not see anything. Not sure what the problem is.
Amazonbasics Usb 3.0 To Ethernet Driver
After downloading the driver and restarting my Macbook, the driver is not installed. I check the system report and the driver does not show up and the uninstall command within the .zip file says that the file does not exist. I installed the same driver a couple times and some different drivers from asix with the same result, even after restarting on each install.
Testet on Mojave right now, it works. The extension (driver for osx) need to be installed. I Downloaded the dmg from the Amazon product page. It contain a .command file for unisnstall the extension, and a .pkg file for install the extension. During the installation it ask for the authorization and you need to go in system preferences, security to approve it.
Update: A Windows 10 driver now exists for the USB2-E1000. However, it will not appear in the CD that comes with the adapter until the next lot of adapters is shipped. The updated driver can be downloaded from this link: Windows 10/8/8.1, 7, Vista, and XP drivers for USB2-E1000.
*Note In 2017, our USB3-HUB3ME was redesigned to include a Realtek RTL8153 chipset and drivers. Windows 10 should automatically configure these drivers when you plug the adapter in.) When you insert these adapters into a USB port, the drivers should automatically install with no need for an internet connection.
Amazonbasics usb3 adapter came so I went back and installed stable version of Owrt. Also since I am working on this downstairs, I wired up a line from Asus router upstairs down to Owrt router and switch so I would have wired connection.Well I was hoping I could do updates and install USB adapter drivers this way. I have modem>Asus router>switch>Owrt router. I have laptop connected to switch as well for Luci/ssh. I have no connection from laptop to Owrt router to do anything. So I started Ubuntu live usb on Owrt router and I do have a wired connection through the switch. I'm not sure what is going on again.
The amazonbasics adapter had many comments from people saying they had it working in Linux, some even mentioned the driver by name, which is why I mentioned it. Will still require a USB module. You can grab appropriate stable kmod-usb-* packages and copy over to new router for install to get USB ether up and running, then you can set up wan and system should drop in as new router.
Byvacuoon March 6, 2017Verified PurchaseI have used many USB 3.0 gigabit ethernet dongles and this one is much more solidly built than most. It uses an ASIX AX88179 chipset which has been supported in mainline Linux since kernel version 3.9. It works perfectly on my Debian system under USB 3.0.
@goblinX: As a quick check which Linux driver is needed for the USB network adapter, you can boot Ubuntu live on your router or any other PC. Type sudo -- dmesg -w , plug in the USB dongle, and look for the module name among the new lines of output that appear. This should give a hint to the kmod-usb-net-* package name in LEDE/OpenWrt.
if you are using a snapshot image from this afternoon and still can't do the kmod install, then drop back to stable and try to get the appropriate driver for your amazonbasics device using the uci magic for connecting to internet.
On the plus side, this even works with non-PC devices like the Nintendo Switch (if you want faster Ethernet downloads vs. Wi-Fi). On the minus side, getting it to work on a MacOS laptop required an extra driver, located here.
Looking for a Gigabit Ethernet adapter for Linux that doubles as a USB 3.0 hub? The Anker 3-Port USB 3.0 HUB is your best bet. Why? Not only will it give your Linux computer a stellar ethernet connection of up to 1 Gbps, but it also has 3 USB 3.0 ports with a very fast data transfer rate.
There are a lot of excellent USB ethernet adapter/USB hub combos out there on the market. However, Anker takes the cake with theirs by promising first-class Linux support. Linux users will be able to plug the device in and get going with no need to install third-party drivers.
TP-Link is well-known for its networking equipment. Consistently, they create products that are well-supported on Linux. The TP-Link USB to Ethernet Adapter is no different. Out of the box, it comes with first-class Linux support; no drivers required.
The UGREEN Network Adapter is an affordable ethernet adapter for Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, and even the Nintendo Switch. It is a USB 3.0 device and can deliver network speeds at a maximum rate of 1 Gbps. However, it is also possible to use the device on USB 2.0 ports, though the network transfer rate will suffer significantly.
In this list, we talked about 4 excellent USB ethernet adapters that work very well with Linux. Though this list is not definitive. What USB ethernet adapter do you use on your Linux system? Sound off in the comment section below!
While reducing potential points of failure would likely be the best option, it is not always possible. After all, several ethernet adapters are substantially less expensive than a dedicated DS computer in most cases.
Driver compatibility: It's the first thing you should consider before buying. Most of the usb to ethernet cable listed below doesn't need any kind of driver installation on Windows 8 or Windows 10. But Windows 7 may require manual driver installation, specially when not updated.
There should be no need of driver installation on macOS 10.9 and above. Though there's few report regarding manual driver installation to get the adapter working properly. If needed, you can download the latest driver from their respective manufacturer's site.
You many feel the glossy plastic body somewhat disappointing. It's prone to scratches, if rubbed against hard surface. But I've to say the adapter performs reasonably well, both as a ethernet adaptor and USB hub.
Macbooks from few years back had USB 3.0 type A ports and Thunderbolt 2 ports. So you can use any of the above type A adapter without any problem. But there's very few thunderbolt ethernet adapter, all of them are made/approved by apple, check one below.
As other adapters, there's no driver installation required on macOS operating system,it's just plug and play. This adapter reaches around 90-100 MB/s transfer speed easily, quite close to gigabit speed.
There's few advantage of type C usb ethernet cable compared to type A. As example, it's quite future proof, compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 and ability to connect the same adapter on a wide range of hardware. The type C devices are reversible, hence easier to attach and detach.
One of the most popular USB type C ethernet adapter, powder coated metal body with a reasonable price tag. It's almost same as the Plugable USB type A adapter, mentioned before.
The ASIX AX88179 chip is well supported on macOS, however there's few issue with faulty driver. You can download driver's from here. On Windows 10 or Linux, there's no driver related issue.
This USB to ethernet adapter seems to work quite well with macOS, however few users are facing problem, so Anker published a patch for mac OS. To download the patch and drivers for Windows, follow this link. The driver's are on the downloads section.
It's highlighted as it supports PXE booting, which is a partially true and a marketing tactic I believe. Any adapter with proper UEFI UNDI driver can do that. Realtek provides those drivers from their download page.
Unlike all other's above, it's fast ethernet device, speed limited to 100Mbps. This adapter also said to be supported by Raspberry Pi Zero when using the Raspbian OS, which doesn't have any ethernet port.
Android driver support: A micro USB to Ethernet adapter can be connected to any android device with USB OTG functionality, if there's a proper driver. Most of the time the default cdc_ether driver is built-in inside the kernel, which has a wide range of converter chip support, including the RTL8153 and RTL8152.
Absolutely USB Ethernet adapters are bottleneck to the wired network.However sometimes and USB to ethernet is the only option to connect the system to a wired network, specially with modern thin and light laptops/ ultrabooks.
I bought a RealTech adapter off of amazon for my MacBook Pro. Over wifi in the house I was getting 450 Mbps. Once I connected the adapter, I am getting 900. But I have to run 45 foot ethernet cable from laptop to the modem. The real problem is that the adapter gets SCORCHING hot. Almost too hot to touch. Is this normal? someone suggested going into my MacBook preferences and turning off auto updates, because supposedly the adapter was continually checking for updates. Is this true?
I have same / similar problem with QGeeM's HC 1202 USB port. Worked reliably under Windows 10 for 2+ years; problem appeared on first restart after installing upgrade to Windows 11. Tried suggestions found online, include one with this issue. The hub's Ethernet port shows no LED activity. No driver updates found by Windows Updates.
i just had similar problem few days ago. in my case, the USB 3.0 TP-Link gigabit network adapter detected as an cd/dvd drive chen plugged in, and the device is dissapearing from the device manager. the USB to ethernet device is working fine before with windows 7 and 10.
i had found the problem was the wireguard vpn drivers crashed into the system networking drivers & registry. fresh re-install the OS and make sure the USB ethernet adapter work first, then installing the wireguard vpn drivers later. it works normally now.
After trying several things such as installing the latest drivers , disableing the hub , removing and re-stating the PC etc , etc. I finally restored all network adapter to factory settings, using the option in the ethernet connections settings page.
