StarTech releases new USB 3.0 adapter

StarTech's USB 3.0 adapter adds a single RJ45 gigabit Ethernet port

New USB 3.0 adapter includes Jumbo Frame support

StarTech has released a new USB 3.0 adapter, enabling users to connect to a Gigabit Ethernet network from a USB 3.0-enabled computer.

The adapter adds a single RJ45 gigabit Ethernet port, and with support for full SuperSpeed USB 3.0, provides greater bandwidth for your network connection.

“This latest addition to our wired networking family of products is ideal for users who need a convenient way to access high-speed Gigabit networks,” said Carey Cline, senior product manager for’s Networking I/O product line.

“Because the adapter uses a USB 3.0 host connection, users are able to take advantage of the convenience of USB without having to rely on an ExpressCard or PCI Express expansion slot. More importantly, they’ll also be able to achieve a much faster connection through the additional bandwidth offered by USB 3.0 technology, as opposed to earlier USB 2.0-based network adapters which were limited by outdated host bus speed capability.”

Other features include Jumbo Frame support, Windows and Mac drivers, backwards compatibilities with USB 2.0, and a dongle-style connection to help reduce clutter and spacing issues.
