Where to buy

The compact super-speed AXAGON ADE-SR adapter easily converts USB 3.0 port to Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbit port.

In addition to a Gigabit bandwidth, the network card offers a wide range of features, such as IPv4/IPv6 checksum to reduce CPU loading by checksums, the crossover detection and auto-correction, TCP large send offload, support for various modes of the Wake-on-LAN feature, the work with virtual LAN (VLAN) and advanced Power Management features.

In modern operating systems from Windows 8.1 above, the adapter allows easy automatic installation without the need for an Internet connection.

Gigabit network card extends your computer by a fast network connection, adds the missing RJ-45 network connector or another network card, or replaces the original defunct network connection.

The support for current versions of Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems allows it to be used for any desktop, laptop or ultrabook. Also, some Android phones and tablets, such as the Samsung S9+, can be connected to the Internet with a network Ethernet cable thanks to this adapter and a suitable reduction*.

A): If the network card is not displayed in "Device Manager", a USB port (or a PCIe slot in the event of an internal network card) may be malfunctioning.

B): Try plugging the network card into another USB port (or another PCIe slot on the PC motherboard in the event of an internal network card, or temporarily disconnect all other PCIe cards). The network card should be detected and you should be prompted to install the drivers. If the problem persists, plug the network card into the USB port (PCIe slot) of another computer to verify its functionality.

A): If this happens, it means that the operating system failed to get the necessary information to install the drivers.

B): The cause may be a defective USB extension cable or damaged device. If the problem persists, plug the network card into the USB port of another computer to verify its functionality.

A): Before connecting the USB network card to an Android device (tablet), you first need to verify with the device manufacturer whether the device supports the Ethernet network feature and also whether the USB network card drivers are included in your specific ANDROID ROM installation.

B): Use a USB connector with OTG support to connect the USB network card to your tablet. If the device (tablet) is equipped with a Mini USB or Micro USB connector, use an OTG reduction or cable to connect it.

A): The Ethernet interface transmission speed setting is a fully independent from USB connection and can be set in the network card's properties. The default setting is an automatic negotiation when the speed is set according to other elements in the LAN network.

B): If you connect the ADE-SG (ADE-XA) adapter via a USB 2.0 port, the overall bandwidth of the adapter will be limited by bandwidth of the USB 2.0 interface, which is theoretically 480 Mb/s; in Gigabit Ethernet environments this adapter will be up to 4x faster than 10/100 Ethernet adapters.
