can 2 Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapters be used for extending a thunderbolt connection
i have a late 2013 intel imac with a trashed screen. thanks to OWC's sub standard adhesive strips for the screen, mine fell out and its trashed. thankfully the motherboard connections are ok. i bought a thunderbolt display because i cant source an in stock replacement display panel. my table will not accommodate two 27" displays. i was wondering if anyone has tired using 2 of these with a cat 5 ethernet cable between them to basically make a long thunderbolt cable. considering the cost of a 10 meter fiber thunderbolt cable and their miserable longevity, it would be awesome if you could use 2 of these to accomplish the same thing. I would like to move my imac about 15' away and use this cable to connect to my thunderbolt display from the imac. anyone tried to use 2 of these for a purpose like that ?

Does the 'Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter' works on iMac (2014) and Mac Mini (2011)?
Both iMac (2014) and Mac Mini (2011) come with single gigabit ethernet port. Is this 'Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter' able to add a secondary gigabit ethernet port/connection? If so, is it able to create "teamed connection" using the onboard gigabit ethernet port and this 'Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter'?

Full gigabit speeds?
I just got CenturyLink Gigabit service, and the fastest speeds I can get ising this adapter is around 650Mbps down/800Mbs up. The CenturyLink installer says it's a limitation of my hardware, and that only fairly new machines will actually get the full 1000Mbs / 1000Mbs speeds. Mid-2012 MBP Retina, which has no ethernet so I'm using this adapter. Does anyone know if there are limits in the adapter, older Macs, or...? If I get a new MBP but it turns out it's the adapter that is chocking things, then I won't see any benefit on that front.
