The USB31000SW USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter adds a single RJ45 Ethernet port to a USB-enabled 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 network adapter is backward compatible with older USB 2.0/1.x computer systems (speed limited by USB bus), making it the ideal portable replacement network adapter or laptop accessory. Plus, with support for features such as Jumbo Frames, VLAN tagging and Wake on LAN (WOL), the adapter offers versatile Gigabit network performance for home and business users alike.



  • Add Gigabit Ethernet capabilities to a desktop or laptop
  • Replace a failed integrated network adapter with an external, USB Gigabit Ethernet connection, instead of having to open a desktop or laptop computer case

The Advantage

  • Full Gigabit bandwidth support, through a USB 3.0 host connection
  • Highly portable design, with no need for an external power adapter
  • Added flexibility near the RJ45 port through Dongle-style design
