Does This Device Have to Install Software Before Used?
Do I Need a Gigabit Cable to Work with This Adapter?
Does this work Mac book pro 2018 that has thunderbolt 3?
SURE! This adapter works fine with the MBP 2018 that has Thunderbolt 3. Also perfectly fine with MacBook Air (Late 2018 and newer); iMac (Mid 2017 and newer), iMac Pro; Mac Mini (Late 2018 and newer) and more.
Does this have activity lights?
YES. It has two flashing indicator lights. One is the power supply status indicator. The other indicates the state of the link.
Has anyone run a speed test using this adapter on an iPad Pro 2018? What were the results?
Here is another answer that comes from our customer:
This answer is a little late in coming but I just purchased and received this adapter today, March 18, 2020. I have the 2018 iPad Pro, and Spectrum GIG internet service. Using this adapter my results on speedtest dot net are:
download Mbps 899.98
upload Mbps 38.50
ping ms 38.50
Hope this helps.

Super impressed! My docking station has been 50/50 on whether I actually get a fast connection when I turn off WiFi and connect to the switch, which is plugged into a gigabit download connection on Xfinity... I just plugged this dongle into the USB-C port, connected a RJ-45 cable and turned off WiFi... Speedtest drew over 900mbps on the first try! Downloaded full 750MB+ episode from Netflix in seconds (less than 15). At this speed, Im guessing netflix and my hard drive are the bottlenecks.
It also comes with a soft clothe carry case which was a nice addition.
The adapter works, no problem.
But value is not there. With price USD 22.99 + USD12 shipping the price / value ratio is poor.
Order date: November 10. Shipping date November 15. Delivery date December 7.
Works perfectly with my Geobook 3x. This has saved me at uni, my WiFi was terrible but with the Ethernet adaptor I get 900mb/s!
