However, on OS X Mountain Lion and Sierra I had to update the Realtek chipset driver to fix a kernel panic problem. Unfortunately the Apple review system won't let me paste links, but if you google "rtl8153 driver update time" the first link (in my search results) takes you to a download page. Version 1.0.15 was crashing, and version 1.0.16 (released Nov 16 2016) has the fix.

I got one that was dead out of the box and the other gets really hot and requires a driver upgrade to not use 60% of cpu. Which very few people even know about and it does not update itself.

It does get warm to the touch during extended network transfers but other than that it gets the job done. I am finding it particularly useful to transfer, using migration assistant, data over to my new 2016 MacBook Pro via Time Machine which is hard-wired to my network (it's a first gen 1TB model). My time machine backup consists of data from my older 2009 17inch MacBook Pro. Initially I tried using Migration Assistant to transfer Mac to Mac using a direct ethernet connection between the two devices, but I was unable to complete that transfer. However now that I am transferring an account all all its programs and data via time Machine to my new MacBook Pro, the process is running much smoother. Because I am using the Belkin Ethernet adapter, I am getting consistent transfer speeds between 14 MB a second and 20 MB a second. I am very pleased.

As soon as we come back from sleep it status just shows: cable unplugged. It has to be the worst adapter I have ever used.

      Internet Recovery will NOT work with this adapter

      Save your money if you plan on using this adapter as a solution for using Internet Recovery. My institution uses WPA2 Enterprise on our wireless network, which Save your money if you plan on using this adapter as a solution for using Internet Recovery. My institution uses WPA2 Enterprise on our wireless network, which isn't support by Internet Recovery, therefor, connecting via wifi is not an option. We bought these USB-C to Ethernet adapters as as solution. The problem is, while they work within the OS, they wont ever reach Internet Recovery. A tcpdump from my institution, and home network reveals there is initial chatter, then things go quiet. If you need a solution for wired Internet Recovery, using the Apple USB-C to Thunderbolt + Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet does work.
