      Used to work perfectly

      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.

      I have used this product for less than 6 months and it doesn't work anymore. The wires got frayed at the base of the cord and just doesn't work. Really don't kn I have used this product for less than 6 months and it doesn't work anymore. The wires got frayed at the base of the cord and just doesn't work.

      Work nicely on iPad Pro 9.7 with lightning to USB3 adaptor IOS10.3

      I am very happy that I can connect internet without using Wi-Fi but Ethernet on an iPad. You just need a lightning to USB3 adaptor. In fact, a lightning to USB3 I am very happy that I can connect internet without using Wi-Fi but Ethernet on an iPad. You just need a lightning to USB3 adaptor. In fact, a lightning to USB3 adaptor is a must have accessory if you own an iPad. 100M Ethernet is pretty enough for me. No complaint!
