USB to Ethernet Adapter

USB to Ethernet adapters are designed to quickly allow networking on a computer without an Ethernet port. The adapter converts a standard USB port on your computer into an Ethernet port, which allows communication at the USB 2.0's speed of 480 Mbps. 

Windows 7 recognizes most USB to Ethernet adapters and automatically installs all required drivers, so you do not need to install any software yourself.
This article will help you use USB to Ethernet Adapter.

  1. Plug the USB to Ethernet adapter into an available USB port on your computer. Windows 7 automatically recognizes and installs all drivers for it.
  2. Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the adapter.
  3. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into your modem, or into a numbered Ethernet port on the router connected to the Internet.
  4. Power on your modem and router. Windows 7 automatically recognizes the connection and allows you to connect to the Internet.
