Get the Most out of Wired Connection Speeds The Plugable 2.5Gbps USB to Ethernet Adapter (USBC-E2500) is for users looking to move beyond Gigabit Ethernet speeds. With USBC-E2500, you can leverage existing Cat 5e Ethernet cables and use less-costly switches to more than double the performance of your local network, compared to traditional Gigabit Ethernet. The adapter comes with a Hybrid 2-in1 connection that converts from USB-C to USB-A, so you always have the right connection. Some common uses include: - Adding wired 2.5 Gigabit network support to Windows desktops, Ultrabooks, 2-in-1s, tablets, or notebooks—as well as Mac and Linux systems - Replacing or upgrading network adapters for your computer - USB network adapters can improve transfer speeds compared to 10/100/1000 adapters, and most wireless networks Adding additional network interfaces, and transferring files peer-to-peer over Ethernet Please note, this adapter is not a solution for connecting USB devices like printers, hard drives, etc to a network. This adapter cannot be used to share Ethernet, WiFi, or mobile data between multiple devices. More Than Double Performance Plug into any laptop or desktop currently limited to 10/100/1000 Ethernet–or no Ethernet at all–and benefit from faster transfers on your 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet network. (Also works on 10/100/1000 Ethernet networks at their native speeds.) USB 3.0 systems support theoretical maximum transfer speeds up to 5Gbps and USB 2.0 supports up to 480Mbps. Note: When accessing sites on the internet, the bandwidth provided by your Internet service provider will likely determine your ultimate speeds. Testing in the Plugable lab using the iPerf application on a local server has yielded speeds up to 2.37Gbps. However, speeds will depend on the capabilities of your host system and other network devices. Multi-Platform Convenience Quickly and easily add Ethernet connectivity, with performance up to 2.5Gbps to virtually any Mac, Windows, or Linux PC. Use either USB-C or USB 3.0 to connect, and connect instantly with built-in drivers on current versions of major operating systems. Compatible with: - USB-C - USB 3.0 - Thunderbolt™ 3 - Thunderbolt™ 4 Note: Older versions of Windows, Linux, and macOS may require a driver download for the adapter to function. Older macOS versions will have limited functionality (1Gbps link rate, no jumbo frame support) until the driver is updated through separate install. Technical Specifications Inside the adapter is a Realtek RTL8156B chipset for fast 10/100/1000/2500Mbit network speeds and with all Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and 2.0 hosts. (USB 2.0 will limit the performance of the adapter.) Drivers built into Windows 10, 8.x, and 7 as well as macOS 10.7 and above (driver install required for 2.5Gbps link rate and jumbo frames), and Linux kernel 3.2 and above.
