Get Your USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 PC Connected Over Ethernet Using the Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
Apple has since done away with the bulk Ethernet port on its latest Mac's, allowing third party USB Type-C to Ethernet adapters like the Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter to be used instead. The Moshi adapter supports 1000Base-T Ethernet and also conveniently provides a USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gb/s) based Type-A port to a USB Type-C based Mac.
The Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter should be able to support notebook PC's, tablets, and phones that are enabled with USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 technologies. To be sure, it is recommended to confirm with the manufacturer's specs or GTrusted's product pages for that information.
Style-wise, the silver aluminum based Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is highly compatible to the Mac.
Moshi makes full use of its packaging by having the product information printed behind as well as on the side of the box.
Like most accessories, the Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter comes with only a warranty card since the USB Type-C cable is already tethered to the adapter.
On one side of the Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, the Gigabit Ethernet port can be connected to an external switch or router using a separate Ethernet cable to achieve 1 Gbps data transfer. The Ethernet port also has LED indicators to display link activity status over Ethernet connection.
The other side of the Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter has the USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gb/s) port.
The Moshi USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is a useful accessory to carry around in case you require an Ethernet connection from your notebook. We'll take a look next at the adapter's compatibility with various products in upcoming reviews.
