    I purchased this because I was trying to lay an image down using WDS and a custom image that we use. I was trying to use this on a Surface Book. I tried several USB to RJ45 adapters but according to MS you have to use a Microsoft USB to RJ45 adapter. After trying several other adapters including a Dell USB-C to RJ45 adapter, This adapter is the only one that would even recognize the WDS server. Mind you I have laid down this image on over 50 Dell PCs so I know it works and that every other computer automatically connects to the server the way it is supposed to with a standard USB to RJ45 or an USB-C to RJ45 adapter that isn't Microsoft. With this adapter it would actually look for the server where all the others never even tried. Only issue was that it would look but never find. Worked with MS Support and Surface Support but was unable to use WDS on a Surface Book. Had to manually load all company software from scratch. 3 stars just because it did TRY to find the WDS server where nothing else even tried. Took 2 away because it failed to connect after multiple hours of trying.

    Microsoft has finally figured it out by creating a suite of Surface products that are integrated and seamless, enhancing the computing experience. The Microsoft Surface USB Network Adapter works perfectly as it is designed specifically for the Surface Book

    Purchased this unit when I needed my Surface Pro book to my Wi-Fi network I was building to allow outside visitors access to our Internet that was VLAN'd. Opened the package plugged it in connected to my network and done and done.

    A must have if you do not want to always have to be tied to the docking station. It converts one of the ports to an ethernet adapter port so you can hard wire you computer into your network vs. having to use your wireless network.

    Gets you high speed with no data loss. Would recommend if you want to achieve full internet speed thru ethernet cable to your surface. Try this with cat 7 cable, it will give you better speed.

    I was in a hard place needing a network adapter for a macbook pro. I wasn't sure this would work but plugged it in and it worked right away. Has been working great with no problems.

    Not much to say. I needed to update the firmware on my router, but of course my laptop does not have an ethernet port. Used this adapter and was able to connect to my router's ethernet port.

    I needed a USB Ethernet Adapter for my Intel Compute Stick since the wireless connection was marginal. Now I have a reliable Ethernet connection.

    Wa a great addition to add to the Microsoft surface. Helps with a lot of accessories to run at once. Especially the Ethernet addition.

    It allows a wired network connection, it is more reliable than third-party adapters I've tried, but it is hit-or-miss. That said, you need to have it.

    More money for more components

    If you are using a tablet like the Surface Pro, you need to buy components a la carte like this. Does the job for me; even works well with a USB port extender.

    Though I am still not used to having various attachments for typical connections, this ethernet connector is simple and easy to use.

    This is truly plug and play when it comes to windows 10 and the USB to Ethernet. Works on all my devices that are windows based.

    I had my network card die on my desktop and needed a quick fix. I got this, plugged it in and it worked perfectly on my windows 10 PC, straight out of the box.

    No problems, works as it should. I think one should be included with a Surface, but that's beside the point.

    This device is just ok.. really didn't see any benefit from it when using it. Unless you do not have wireless where you are at this is not needed

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Does the job on my surface book 2. Provides the ability to connect Ethernet instead of using WiFi.
