Plus, with support for features such as Jumbo Frames, VLAN tagging and Wake on LAN (WOL), the adapter offers a versatile Gigabit network solution for home and business users alike.

The USB31000S USB 3.0 Gigabit adapter is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

In the Media
“Impressive performance”

Takes advantage of USB 3.0 connectivity to deliver network throughput that's almost as good as using an on-board Gigabit Ethernet controller.

Bottom Line: 4.5/5, Editor's Choice

“A simple and good value adaptor that works well”

When we connected it to a USB2 port we still saw 326.2Mbit/s, so it will even give you a threefold speed boost over 10/100 Ethernet if you don’t have a USB3 port.

Bottom Line: Best Buy, 5.0/5.0 Stars
