Great design and low weight in today’s laptops is great but doesn’t come without a price. To do that, manufacturers had to remove some elements that were considered essential a few years back. One feature that is missing the most from laptops is the good, old ethernet port. Being a little thicker than other ports, it doesn’t fit in the slim bodies of modern laptops and tablets so it was abandoned. The solution to that comes via a USB adapter like the dodocool Gigabit Ethernet Adapter that doubles as a USB hub as too.
As always with the dodocool products, build quality is great and high-strength ABS plastic with fine workmanship is adopted to make it compact and delicate. Being used in conjunction with a laptop, it is ultra slim for easy carrying in your bag. In addition, it comes with 3 superspeed USB 3.0 ports with a theoretical transmission speed of 5Gbps. The connector is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 and the ethernet supports IPv4 and IPv6 packets checksum offload engine(COE) to reduce CPU load. What’s more, it comes with full duplex operation support with IEEE 802.3x flow control and half duplex operation with back-pressure flow control and Wake on LAN function.
The adapter is hot-swappable and compatible with Windows XP and MAC OS X 10.6 and above. To see the full details, visit the product page. The dodocool Foldable Magnetic Charging Dock is available on Amazon US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, and Italy.
