With speeds up to 5Gbps, USB 3.0 is quickly becoming the new standard in PC and laptop data transfer technology. However, some computers only have 10/100 Ethernet ports while Macbook Air and often Ultrabooks do not have any Ethernet ports. The USB 2.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapters are limited by the maximum data rate for USB 2.0 of 480Mbps while our USB 3.0 adapter is capable of reaching speeds of 5Mbps. Upgrade existing 10/100 Ethernet connectivity to Gigabit super speeds or introduce true USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity into an Ultrabook or Macbook Air.
The EU-4306 supports USB 3.0, the latest specification of the USB standard which provides a maximum data transmission speed of 5Gbps. Up to ten times faster than the existing USB 2.0 standard, which is limited to a maximum speed of 480Mbps, USB 3.0 allows you to reach full capacity of the 10/100 / 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet via an existing USB port without the need for install a Gigabit Ethernet card.
Ideal for Ultrabooks
For Ultrabook or Macbook Air without an Ethernet port, use the USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter for the simple functionality of the Gigabit Ethernet network plug-in connection. and-play. Take the compact and portable EU-4306 adapter wherever you go and stay connected to the fast and reliable Gigabit Ethernet network whenever you need it. Provide Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to desktops, laptops, game consoles or home network equipment.
Support Jumbo Frame
Support for jumbo frames can offer significant improvements in network performance and increase effective bandwidth. Jumbo frames are Ethernet frames (data packets) up to a maximum of 4000 bytes per frame, compared to the relatively smaller standard Ethernet frames of 1500 bytes. Using larger frames means fewer frames are sent over the network, which improves CPU cycles and bandwidth. For some applications, especially those typical of using Gigabit Ethernet such as large file transfers, the result is a significantly improved network performance.
The EU-4306 integrates an energy saving function to reduce energy consumption by up to 35% in the absence of Ethernet activity, reducing costs and helping to improve the environment.
