      Works great! (But don't buy it for MBA!!!)

      Why? This is nothing wrong with the product at all and it works great! The problem is... if you are using Macbook Air and you need to connect to extra monitor Why? This is nothing wrong with the product at all and it works great! The problem is... if you are using Macbook Air and you need to connect to extra monitor with thunderbolt you are out of luck. Either have this or the thunderbolt to DVI/HDMI adpter. I never thought of this until I bought it went home and had the "Ahhhh moment". Get the USB version instead. If you never care about extra monitor ever at all or you don't need to do presentation on bigger screens then sure go ahead.

      Try checking for a Thunderbolt update if it doesn't work

      When I first plugged the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter into my Macbook Air nothing showed up in the Network Preferences. Tried rebooting, etc. but nothing. When I first plugged the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter into my Macbook Air nothing showed up in the Network Preferences. Tried rebooting, etc. but nothing. Luckily I had a wireless connection available so tried Software Update and lo and behold there was a Thunderbolt Update available. Installed that and rebooted and the adapter worked perfectly.

      Works perfectly

      Excellent addition to my Mid-2011 MacBook Air 13'' i5 4GB-RAM 128GB. I did install the Thunderbolt update from Software Update before first using this adapter, Excellent addition to my Mid-2011 MacBook Air 13'' i5 4GB-RAM 128GB. I did install the Thunderbolt update from Software Update before first using this adapter, but all works fine, great product and good use of thunderbolt connectivity, about time such an adapter exists. Simply plugged it in to an ethernet cable and it worked instantly. I turned off wifi before first using just as a precautionary measure, to prevent any glitches or hiccups etc. after reading a few negative experiences first using this adapter, but all is fine. All we need now is a thunderbolt to thunderbolt x 4 hub or a thunderbolt splitter to take full advantage of the blazing fast speeds offered.

      Great product

      I purchased this thunderbolt ethernet adapter last week and it just recently arrived (on time). It works absolutely remarkably (it can reach the download speed I purchased this thunderbolt ethernet adapter last week and it just recently arrived (on time). It works absolutely remarkably (it can reach the download speed of 3MB/s). My friend used the one with USB port and it can only reach maximum of 1MB/s. Definitely a worthy purchase.
