Can I connect a mac air with an extra monitor as well as ethernet ?

I bought one thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter and one Mini Display Port to DVI adapter. But there is only one thunderbolt on Mac Air. How can I connect an extra monitor as well as Ethernet?

    USB to Ethernet adapter is my cheaper solution than a Thuderbolt dock.

  • You need a device like the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock.

    It will give you a pass-through Thunderbolt port, along with Gigabit Ethernet, 3-USB3 ports, audio and HDMI. If you could drive your external monitor with an HDMI connection, you could get this hub and return both adapters you bought.
