Add powerful connectivity to your USB-C enabled laptop, tablet or desktop computer. Ideal for mobile use, this USB-C to Ethernet adapter plugs into your USB-C or Thunderbolt(TM) 3 port to provide wired network access, and gives you three USB 3.0 Type-A ports to connect your peripheral devices. Plus you can charge your laptop as you work. It makes a great companion for your MacBook, Chromebook Pixel(TM), Dell(TM) XPS 12, or other device.
Access reliable Gigabit network connections
Gain a wired internet connection virtually anywhere you go. The USB-C network adapter provides an Ethernet port that supports full Gigabit bandwidth by harnessing the performance of USB 3.0 (5 Gbps), also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1. You can connect to a network in locations where Wi-Fi(R) is unavailable or unreliable, and quickly access large files over the network at Gigabit speed.
Enhance productivity with a 3-port USB hub
Some USB Type-C laptops, tablets and computers have only one port for external connectivity, which limits the number of peripheral devices you can use. This USB-C Ethernet adapter features a built-in hub with three USB Type-A ports, giving you the freedom to attach additional devices, such as a USB mouse or flash drive. You can expand the number of USB ports you have to enhance your productivity.
Gain easy portability
Travel-sized and self-powered, this USB-C network adapter and hub provides easy portability, tucking easily into your laptop bag and eliminating the need to carry a separate Gigabit Ethernet adapter and USB-C to USB-A hub. It's ideal for mobile use, providing you with wired network connectivity wherever you go, and letting you plug in extra USB peripheral devices. It also has a built-in USB-Type-C cable so it's always there when you need it.
Power and charge as you work
The USB-C network adapter lets you power and charge your laptop as you work, while powering the hub at the same time. The adapter supports Power Delivery 2.0, so instead of carrying multiple power adapters, you can use your laptop's USB-C power adapter to power both your laptop and network adapter. Note: just make sure your laptop's USB-C based power adapter supports USB Power Delivery 2.0.
Install it with ease
Get up and running quickly. Simply plug the adapter into the USB Type-C(TM) port on your laptop and connect to your network. It automatically installs once you connect it, and works with a wide range of operating systems such as Windows(R), macOS, Linux(R) and Chrome OS(TM).

Ensure that your host laptop's USB-C port supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 The adapter can connect to a host laptop's USB-C port that doesn't support USB Power Delivery 2.0. However, in this configuration if a power adapter is connected to the hub, it will not pass power through to your host laptop. The adapter's USB-C port is for USB Power Delivery only. It does not support DisplayPort alt mode, or data transfers. USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1; this connectivity standard offers speeds up to 5Gbps.
