    So Finally

    After messing around for a couple of weeks with other USB-C to Gigabit ethernet adapters, including high-end powered and unpowered hubs, I finally have a simple, plug and play, ethernet adapter for my 2018 MacBook Pro that just works. Yes, I plugged it in. And it worked. There were no "drivers" to download and install, no step-by-step network configurations, no tech troubleshooting and waiting for a support response because my Macbook could not "recognize' the other adapters. None of that. I plugged this Insignia adapter in and it IMMEDIATELY connected my MacBook Pro computer to my router via DHCP. I couldn't be happier after all the frustration I experienced with the other, much more expensive, adapters. The Apple tech at Best Buy was kind enough to check online to make sure this adapter wouldn't need a driver and he was on point. He was able to tell me that Apple itself doesn't make one of these specific adapters themselves, which is a bit weird, but also very helpful information. This is an excellent USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. It just works. Right out of the box.

    My Internet became unstable. Was the problem from the router or the modem or the DSL line? I needed a direct connection between my laptop and my modem to troubleshoot the problems AND to re-set the modem. This $30 "accessory" from Best Buy worked as well as an Ethernet card inside a computer. My new laptop came without an Ethernet port so this accessory was the only thing allowing me to check my modem's function with certainty. Without it, I could never have convinced my ISP that my Internet instability was on their end, not mine. Thank you, Best Buy, for another great product.

    Had no issues with the product delivering internet to my Dell XPS 9560 on either Windows or Ubuntu. I no longer use the product because my USB-C port is normally occupied by my docking station, which has ethernet built in, but this product is great for anyone that doesn't need a heavy duty (and expensive!) docking station.

    I have gigabit fiber and while wireless is fast, I get a fraction of the speed I would like. I use wireless (AC mostly) but in my office, where my fiber modem is, I'm able to hook up directly to my router. Since my Mac doesn't have an Ethernet port, I purchased this adaptor. It's plug and play (once you enable the Ethernet port in network setting.

    I was setting up a new network with my MacBook Pro. 90% of the configuration is done wirelessly. However, the initial configuration needs to be done with an actual connection. This adapter works perfectly. I plugged it in and it was instantly recognized and available. I keep this adapter in my bag everywhere I go.

    I did not realize that my new laptop did not have an ethernet port until after I got it home and hunted for a place to plug my ethernet cable into. Went to Best Buy and bought this adapter and now have wired connectivity. It works just as it is supposed to and I would definitely recommend this product.

    After introducing many errors while trying to load software in a new laptop, Your technicians cleaned all faulty software installs off the laptop and returned it to out-the-door factory specs. After finishing some recommended instruction reading I got it right (I think).

    Are you wanting to make the most of your internet connection? Plug right into the cable modem or access point with a category 6 cable and this cost-effective solution from Insignia. The USB Type-C adapter will fit your newer iMac, iMac Pro, MacBook Pro/Air or iPad Pro just fine.

    Not sure why Apple took Ethernet out of MacBooks - to gain real estate for other things? But this is a must have, especially if you need to use migration assistant to move data from older Mac to newer MacBook or tie newer MacBook into router, printer Ethernet ports.

    Not much to tell about this ethernet adapter, other than it works exactly as advertised. It is truly plug and play. I didn't have to install any drivers. Windows 10 recognized it, the moment I connected it to the USB-C port. I would recommend it to anyone.

    This adapter is exactly what I needed. My WiFi signal at my house can be pretty weak sometimes but using this Ethernet adapter helped in those situations where I needed files to be downloaded faster. I recommend this Ethernet adapter if WiFi signal is not the strongest in your house.

    This small adapter does a superb job of providing an Ethernet connection through a Type C USB. I tried other more expensive adapters with additional ports and they would not work.However this little gem worked immediately with no problems.

    Bought this adapter because I was tired of using the Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter and then a Thunderbolt to Ethernet. This plugs right up and works great. Great feature to have the link and activity lights as well.

    When you need to check the speed of your internet connection independent of your router you need an ethernet connection. As MacBooks have only a type c USB port, an adapter is needed for a direct connection to your modem.

    I have needed to use this several times with my MacBook Pro. It works great and I have never had a problem with it. It does get pretty warm while using it, but so do all of the other brands that I have tried.

    This adapter is compatible with the Asus ZenPad 10 Android verion 7.0. Using a tablet to troubleshoot networks is so much easier than using a laptop. No special software is needed since I only need a web browser to connect to my equipment.

    My new laptop didn't have an ethernet jack, so I got this to install Linux from a USB boot disk before WiFi was available. It worked like a champ and was way faster for most of the downloads.
