      To all the folks complaining about the limited speed and giving out one star ratings... did you read the product description? It literally says "10/100BASE-T pe To all the folks complaining about the limited speed and giving out one star ratings... did you read the product description? It literally says "10/100BASE-T performance" which limits the connection to 100Mbps. If you are lucky enough to have higher bandwidth than that, buy the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. Either way, the device stopped working for us after updating to the newer OS. It now requires a 3rd party driver and that failed after a few days. Another quality product that we are forced to upgrade.

The cable is not frayed, I did not use it the whole 3 years, but plugged it in recently, perhaps a year ago. Although cables have a 1 year waranty, most cables of any sort do not fail after 1-3 years. I was also disappointed to learn that the speed is restricted to 100mbs.
