ASIX AX88178 USB 2.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

Written by Vlad on August 13, 2010 – 9:59 pm - 3,831 views

USB Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

The easiest way to add high speed Gigabit Ethernet networking to a Laptop, Netbook, Media Centre PC or Desktop PC is with a USB Gigabit Ethernet adapter.

All USB Gigabit Ethernet adapters that I have seen are based on the ASIX AX88178 chipset. Detailed chipset information and drivers are available from ASIX’s website.

I paid about $60 for two generic-branded adapters on eBay that I imported from China. I have these adapters installed on two Windows 7 x64 machines that have been running 24hrs/day for 3 months and have never missed a beat. They are also supported under Linux.
