USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Vertical Network Adapter (M/F) - USB 3.1 Gen 1, 10/100/1000 Mbps, Black

Model Number: U436-000-GB New

Connects the USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port on your computer, laptop, MacBook, Chromebook or tablet to a wired Gigabit Ethernet network.
  • Connects to a wired 10/100/1000 Mbps network where Wi-Fi is weak or unavailable
  • Vertical USB-C plug orientation prevents adjacent ports from being blocked
  • More convenient, less expensive than installing or upgrading an internal Ethernet card
  • Reversible USB-C plug connects in either direction for immediate no-fuss use
  • Plug-and-play operation with no software required for easy, immediate installation
  • 3-year limited warranty


USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Connects to Your Laptop’s USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 Port
This USB Type-C to Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Adapter (M/F) allows your computer, tablet, laptop, notebook, MacBook, Chromebook, Ultrabook or smartphone to connect to a wired Ethernet network. Connect the USB-C plug to your device’s USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port, and connect the RJ45 port to a UTP cable (such as Tripp Lite’s N201-Series, sold separately). 

Access True Gigabit Speeds Without an Ethernet Card
Ideal for settings in which no Wi-Fi is available or when a wired connection offers faster speeds, this USB 3.1 Gen 1 adapter lets you enjoy true 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet speeds for fast data transfers and audio/video streaming. Stream audio and video without buffering, upload family photos to the Cloud and transfer large files with confidence.

Vertical Molding Prevents Blockage of Adjacent Ports
The USB-C input’s vertical orientation results in a slimmer adapter that maximizes space around the device’s ports and prevents them from being blocked. Unlike traditional USB cables that connect in only one direction, the reversible USB-C male connector plugs into a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port in either direction for a fumble-free connection every time.

Ready to Use Right from the Package, So You Can Plug and Play Immediately
The plug-and-play USB Type-C to DisplayPort adapter is specifically designed for use with the MacBook, Google Chromebook Pixel and other laptops, tablets and devices equipped with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port. It requires no software, drivers or external power (a driver may be required if your computer is running a version of Windows older than 10.1). The palm-sized one-piece molding fits into your pocket, briefcase or laptop bag for connecting to DisplayPort monitors anywhere.
