What cable is used with the thunderbolt to gigabit adapter?
The gigabit connector on the visualization of the adapter seems to look thinner than the standard connector to the ethernet modem.

This adapter has a jack that accepts any RJ-45 cable that has all 8 conductors present and properly terminated. If fewer than 8 wires are present in your cable, the adapter will not be able to attain Gigabit speeds.
The visualization shows a view from above the jack, so it is visually reduced in height. An RJ-45 jack viewed head-on is nearly square and has 8 contacts.
