    USB C Network Adaptor

    We switched computers and needed to free up a port on the USB A hub, more recent computers seem to be trading size for usability/ports. This was a good way to combat this issue. This adaptor works the same, maybe a bit faster, than it’s USB A counterpart. Only four stars because I wish the USB C cord was a little longer to make it easier to fold behind the computer and conduct cable management better.

    Connect devices with this Belkin USB-C to Ethernet adapter. It delivers Gigabit Internet speeds using a direct and rapid connection so your USB-C device has the reliability of Ethernet. The reversible USB connector on this Belkin USB-C to Ethernet adapter lets you make your newer model laptop or tablet Ethernet-ready for blazing-fast Internet browsing. This works excellent on the MacBook Pro 2017 model with Touch Bar

    Needed to use Migration Assistant to transfer all user data from our 2012 MacBook Pro to a new MacBook Pro that our daughter is taking to college. The new MacBook Pro only has Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C ports so this was the fastest way to connect the two computers together. As a bonus my daughter can now take this adapter to school and use to hardwire to the router for faster download speeds.

    Direct Ethernet connection for MacBook Pro

    Purchased this to use Ethernet on new MacBook Pro with touchbar. Works as expected. Although, I don’t see why Apple did not include an Ethernet port in the machine in the first instance. Agreed that this is sacrifice they made for minimalistic design, but it means without an adapter such as this, you can’t connect your expensive MacBook Pro in places where the only option is wired Ethernet.

    Got good Ethernet and bad WiFi?

    The WiFi in my office sucks! But we have fast Ethernet. The MacBook Pro doesn’t have an Ethernet connectivity. I didn’t want to buy one of those large clunky multi port adapters. So I went this route and it works great. I leave this in my office and use when I’m there. It’s fast and does what it’s supposed to.

    If you’re on the latest update 10.13.6 on Mac OSX then I would recommend this product because I tried other ones where it didn’t work and I couldn’t get connected to the ethernet directly it will plug-in to the type C and then you just plug in the ethernet cable and you’re good to go

    While looking at the Apple network adapter, the salesperson pointed this item out to me and since I am new the Mac world, I decided to take a chance and try it. I have used Belkin products in the past and have been very satisfied with them -- this purchase included. In short, plug it in and you're ready to go.

    It has been a long time since I was attached to a hard line. Just bumped my bandwidth to 250. Holy moly, all movie and videos are now done on the hard line. This adapter takes the thinking out of how to make it work.

    After I switched to a MacBook pro, I needed an adapter that would go from Apple's USB-C to my ethernet connection. This adapter provided that function and has worked flawlessly. It is also a good price performer.

    This adapter works well. I do not notice a difference between the port on my last very similar laptop and using the adapter. Convenient to have if I need it and easy to carry with me in the laptop bag. Worth having and has come in very handy.

    The little adapter made connectivity easier and so much cheaper! Apple had the same fix but used Two separate connectors at double the price. Belkin did it with one piece at half the price. Thanks!!

    This does its job. I would say it was a good buy, as I often plug my computer directly into the router when I need faster speeds. Unnecessary if you only ever use WiFi though.

    I bought this for my nintendo switch so I could use ethernet in handheld mode. Unfortunately, it doesn't work at all. It completely failed to connect to internet. Maybe it works for laptops, but this is not a product for switch owners.

    Bought the adapter as an "insurance policy" should I incur wireless router problems. As luck would have it, the router failed at a critical time and the adapter avoided serious downtime until the problem got resolved.

    Worked right out of the box with no issues. Internet speeds more than doubled compared to wifi. Product doesn't feel cheap and the connection to my laptop's usb-c port is sturdy and doesn't move.

    Purchased the Belkin USB-C to Ethernet adapter so that a network cable can be used when needed...especially for live video sessions. Wireless connections are great but sometimes you just need more bandwidth...easy to plug and play.

    I bought this adapter to use with a new Dell XPS 15 Laptop. I'm running Fedora Linux Workstation 25 and needed a ethernet gigabit adapter that would just work plug-n-play with Linux and it absolutely does! I don't have any complaints about it.

    This USB-C to Cat5 adapter is an excellent way to connect to the internet with a hard line to any computer that uses USB-C. Most of the newer computers require adapters for all connections to USB-C.

    Got this Ethernet adapter to use with my 2017 MacBook Pro while traveling overseas. It works great, no issue so far. One thing to be aware of is that it can get very warm in prolong using.

    Unfortunately the PC that I recently purchased had no Ethernet port. It did, however, have a USB-C port and this adaptor works exactly as described, providing me with an Ethernet connection when I am travelling for business.
