      USB ports work fine, but not Ethernet

      Posted

      And Ethernet is the biggest reason I bought this. Every time I use it, I have to plug and unplug the ethernet cable in order to gain internet access. Often takes 5+ tries, waiting between each to see if I got connected. Then once I finally do get access, it'll work for awhile and then randomly disconnect me without warning....I often resort to (slower) Wi-Fi just to avoid interruptions. Needless to say both problems I've described are very frustrating. I downloaded and installed the driver correctly and closely followed the J5Create step-by-step installation instructions. Even uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, but immediately started having the same problems. At least all three USB ports continue to work

      Perfect answer to my problem

      I have a new Macbook Air which does not have an Ethernet port and has only two USB ports. That means finding a suitable hub or equivalent. After fooling around, for too long, with a USB to Ethernet connector, I gave up. The connection kept failing. Besides, it would have taken up one of my two valuable USB ports. I then found the j5 create hub with not only an Ethernet port but also three USB 3 ports. What a find. After downloading and installing the drivers, it worked like a charm, first time out. What a pleasure. I could go on but I will wait for a few more months of operating before I say that it is a "permanent" fix. But so far, absolutely no issues.

      Works if you have enough USB port power

      I used this with an Insignia tablet which does not provide enough USB power to power a portable external hard drive. I didn't think the USB network adapter and hub together would overload it and I don't think there's any good excuse for it doing so, but they did. It worked in a USB port on my desktop. Another USB gigabit ethernet adapter with the same chip worked on that tablet. If you have sufficient USB port power, it might be a good purchase, however I'd recommend buying a dedicated USB gigabit adapter instead.

      Perfect for what I need. I'm using it right now at work with my Asus 2-in-1; it's connected via a USB dongle that was supplied with the Asus. The other end is connected to the hub with a Cat5 cable so I can connect to the network, and I also have a wireless mouse receiver connected to the hub as well. No issues with setup, and it's been 100% reliable so far. I also like the fact that the hub is not huge; it fits into my Asus case fairly easily. Very happy with this peripheral.

      Love it for my Surface 4 Pro

      I work in IT, and bought this to use with my Surface 4 Pro that I use for work - being able to work hard wired at home is a huge plus, and having the additional USB ports is great. The option for the AC adapter is a huge plus too, the Belkin model doesn't have that. Liked it so much I bought another, and use it for my home laptop to connect an external keyboard, mouse and Ethernet (HP Envy x360) when I don't feel like fiddling with cords while I'm sitting at my desk.

      I was looking to get a wired Ethernet adapter for my MacBook Pro Retina Display and the price of a Thunderbolt Adapter and this was very similar. The Good thing of this USB 3 Adapter is that after the download (it does come with a CD) of the software is a very easy installation and the good thing is that it includes a USB 3 Hub. Neat. More ports. On the bad side it should include a Power Adapter for when you need to run more than one Hard Drive on the hub.

      Allowed me to use Ethernet on my new laptop

      The reason for my laptop purchase was so that I could do more than with a tablet alone, so I was very surprised that the new laptop didn't come with an Ethernet port. I decided to get this adapter since I would be able to use my laptop with wired Ethernet, plus it also has 3 USB ports. Having one adapter to keep track of and being able to use it multi-purpose seemed like the best situation. The adapter works fine.

      My 2-in-1 lacks an eithernet port and I wanted a sub hub. This fits the bill of what I was looking for. It works great and is a convient form factor. Just don't expect to get full gigabit speeds, USB 3.0 is only about half of that. I was able to get about 350 megabits speeds real word transfer from a network computer with a solid state drive to my computer which also had a solid state drive. I am happy this unit.
