PSA and question . . .


Recommended Posts

new laptops (especially 2-in-1s) don't come with ethernet ports.  :ohmy: :scared: :eek: :willy_nilly: :willy_nilly: :willy_nilly: talk about MAJOR freak out . . . apparently, you can get an adapter that sticks in a usb port, and then hook the ethernet into that.  :chillpill: calm down time. . . .


now, to figure out which size (yeah, they come in "different" speed capacities :confused: )  I'm leaning capable of faster speeds than not . . .

Some do, some don't.

Assuming you have a wireless card in the notebook that can handled wired transmissions, the actual USB-rj45 connector is about $3.


If you need to buy an external wired Ethernet device, yes - buy the fastest one you can afford. Or buy a cheap wireless hub/router and plug that into your wired Internet and use the laptop wireless.
