SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (SKU: 202013)
USB 3.0 is the second major revision of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard for computer connectivity. It adds a new transfer mode called "SuperSpeed," which is capable of transferring data at up to 5Gbit/s—more than 10 times as fast as the 480 Mbit/s top speed of USB 2.0. A USB 3 port is usually colored blue, and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.
Cable Matters SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter adds Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity to a laptop or desktop through a USB 3.0 port at full bandwidth. It features 5 Gbps (10x faster than USB 2.0) and easy connectivity. It is backwards compatible with USB 2.0/1.x (speed limited by USB bus).

Important note for macOS users
When you install the driver, your OS may detect the driver as an unsigned driver. As a result, it will generate a one-time advisory message that the kernel extension is unsigned. However, that does not affect the functionality. We have tested the unsigned driver to work without issue. An updated, signed kernel extension is anticipated from ASIX.
Once you've used our adapter on macOS and you upgrade your OS to a newer version, you do need to reinstall the driver. The one–time advisory message that the kernel extension is unsigned will pop up. However, that does not affect the functionality.
