I fixed my laptop with this adapter. My laptop was hit with a power surge at the LAN port which this adapter fixed that problem.
Simple, straight forward, easy to use. Very happy with it.
Works as expected since my laptop did not have the connection.
Hello!I LOVE this cable! I have a MacBook Pro (which ONLY has 4 USB-C ports). No other type of connectors.1) I am a fitness instructor and had been doing zoom classes online. I had been getting video freezes while teaching using wireless. Hence I go this cable.I LOVE it! Video comes through real time and no complaint from my participants.2) I was not able to see the printer on my network using wireless. My husband had hid it behind a private network. I worked on for 2 weeks trying to resolve the problem. I tried upgrading the driver and searched online on how to resolve it.When I received the cable, I hooked up my ethernet cable and "Lo and behold!", there was my printer!Wireless networks are great for lots of work. But sometimes, having a cabled network is so much more valuable and reliable. Such a great investment!
Works as advertised
