Just buy a usb to ethernet adapter!
Cable Matters USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Ethernet / USB 3 to Ethernet / USB to Gigabit Ethernet / USB to RJ45) Supporting 10 / 100 / 1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_AufEDbNBKJMBS
Works just fine on my C9, heres the exact adapter I have https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Ethernet-Adapter-Supporting/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=sr_1_10?crid=2P88A9PQWTC2D&dchild=1&keywords=usb+to+ethernet+adapter&qid=1611118901&sprefix=usb+to+ethe%2Caps%2C145&sr=8-10
There may be, what devices specifically are you referring to? USB to ethernet adapters? I believe when I was doing my homework about what ethernet adapter to get some people did report certain brands not working. But this is the one I use and can confirm works fine: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU?pf_rd_r=N63BJ5DN10CKWRB31ZXW&pf_rd_p=5ae2c7f8-e0c6-4f35-9071-dc3240e894a8
this is personally the one that works for me. i have heard that some don't but this one surely does.
Hey do you guys think this will work with the Switch?
If not can you recommend one because the Nintendo one is hella expensive and the amazon one says it'll take 4-5 months.
something like this, just make sure it has gigabit. that card is pretty bad and you are most likely stuck on the 10mb setting for some reason
USB 3.0 has a bandwidth up to 6 Gbps duplex. So it can easily support 1 Gbps Ethernet, 2.5 Gbps, or 5 Gbps.
I don't think there is a performance decrease in my experience, but I can't say for sure. Just make sure it's a USB 3 adapter and not USB 2.
Anyways they're pretty cheap (like this). You can get one to test if it can get 1 Gbps. And then if it does but you're not comfortable using it instead of an internal NIC, you can switch our your internal NIC to a new one and see if it works on 1 Gbps too.
I have 3 LG OLEDs (C7, C8, and C1) and I have run into weird network issues using either Wifi and Ethernet with both my C7 and C8 for various reasons.
Now I have long since start using AppleTV with both C8 and C1. But before I started using AppleTV, I used this 1Gig Ethernet dongle which worked great. You just plug into one the USB ports connect the Ethernet cable and the TV will automatically connect to it and when using the speeds within the Netflix app I was getting around 200megs.
Works fine on my A90J. Are you using a USB ethernet adapter for fastest wired internet? Not 100% sure about the A80J but on mine the built-in lan is only 100Mbps. With USB ethernet I get up to 1Gbps depending on your ISP speed, mine tests at 470Mbps. Worth a try if your ISP is faster than 100.
USB ethernet adapter
I personally went with option b) and I can stream 4k to my LG TV well 99% of the time. Occasionally a stutter on some content but fine for the most part.
This is the usb ethernet adapter I got: Amazon link
I went from getting 90 Mbps with the TVs ethernet port to 500 Mbps using this adapter.
For starters, use RD (if you aren’t already). Second, get a usb Ethernet adapter (this one: Cable Matters Plug & Play USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet, Ethernet to USB, Ethernet Adapter for Laptop) Supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_B7X2N7Y7NGZ52ENN1E20), plug it into the Ian 3 port and connect via Ethernet, not WiFi. I did this with my A80J and I’m getting almost 600mb download with zero buffering while watching 4K content all the time, zero issues!!!
I had this problem on Windows 10, but not 7. My fix was this:
Works 100% of the time now, in every device I've used for NetInstall.
I had two Dell Latitudes that didn't like NetInstall on Windows 10 with Intel NICs. Now they work. Don't need it on Windows 7, same hardware...go figure.
Turning off all the interfaces didn't help me either.
Right! So lame in 2022 TVs are putting 100LAN ports on TVs. I actually use the Apple TV as my main interface. I pay for 1G fiber. The ATV is of course hardwired into my router.
I use this adapter for the Sony tv. Plugged into the 3.1 USB port. I average 400/600 speeds into the tv.

Sorry your having these issue. I recently bought a x85j refurbed but I haven't ran into this issue. I recommend you switch to Ethernet if it's an option for you since it's even faster and more reliable which really helps with high bitrate 4k streaming. The crazy thing is the onboard Ethernet is total crap. I actually found the info here but this USB 3 gigabit Ethernet adapter is plug and play and works like a charm Cable Matters USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Ethernet) Supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_P539Z57VJ87DJG9QXRF5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 .
My only other suggestion would be is try switching the channels around for 2.4 and 5 ghz. Make sure you not using dfs channels, or 160mhz wide channel unless you live in middle of nowhere.
If it's under warranty you could always have it fixed as well.
If you end up hardwiring via Ethernet, this will triple your speeds. The LAN port is capped at 100mbps…

The Bravia core app is crazy. The movies are so crisp. We get 5 free movies. Check out the latest Spider-Man and ghost busters.
I have the 65A80J. I previously had the 65X95J. I used this usb to Ethernet adapter on both TVs. It works well. I have it plugged into the usb 3.0 port on the A80j. I’m averaging speeds of 400-600mbps. The LAN port on the tv is capped at 100mbps which is stupid.
This may help. Get Cable Matters USB to ethernet adapter here:

Disable wifi in TV settings, plug into USB 3 or 2 port (either works), then plug in live CAT cable to adapter. If it's an issue with your service provider or modem/router this might not stop the annoying restarts (though it might) but either way your download speed will blow your mind if you have more than 100 mbps down from your ISP. All TVs have 10/100 LAN ports (cause manufacturers are cheap. Yay Capitalism! ) but this is a solid workaround. Pre adapter I had 97.55 mbps down. Now in USB 2 port I get around 360 mbps down and in USB 3 port I get 880+ mbps down. I do have Gigabit service though so bare that in mind.
Hope this helps.
This is the one I went with because I believe it was directly linked in the video - Amazon. No issues whatsoever. You can try out the TP Link one, but I don't know how well it works. I haven't tested it out.
You keep mentioning USB 2.0 which is leading me to believe that you may have the wrong USB adapter.
This is one I bought from Amazon and it's USB 3.0 adapter.
On the other one, you could try a USB to ethernet adapter as a test.
They're cheap and easily available on Amazon.
We keep a bunch around for "just in case" situations. Which seem to happen far more often than I would like. ;)
I'm wired connected (three 5 eeros wired backhaul non-pro setup) to my LG B9 TV using ethernet usb connector https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU/
No issues with netflix, amazon prime, plex (4k remux rips on my local network) and airplay2. if you have access to amazon perhaps try the adapter.
Crap I didn't know that! I've speedcheck it with the Netflix app and indeed the speed gets stuck around 98 mbits. I went on amazon to buy this ethernet dongle to upgrade it. Now i've got 200+ mbit. Here's the ethernet dongle I bought: Cable Matter usb to ethernet gigabit
Try unplugging the power cable from the back of the PC. Press and hold the power button down for about 30 seconds or so. Re-insert power cable and power back up. Check to see if the Ethernet controller reappears.
If it doesn't, go into the BIOS and check to see if there's an option for your LAN controller. Make sure it's enabled. It should be, but best to make sure.
If you don't have much to lose and you're willing, a more drastic approach would be to attempt to reinstall Windows. The intent here is to see if the problem is software-related. It could be a complex software issue that might be difficult to trace. A reinstall would clear the bug and restore functionality.
If none of the above work, then it's possible you now have a failed Ethernet chip. A component on the motherboard, most likely some microchip, or something else related to Ethernet power management, has failed and now the Ethernet adapter cannot function. This will unfortunately not be easily repairable.
If you find the Ethernet chip has suffered hardware failure, then the next best solution would be to buy a USB to Ethernet adapter.
That's an example of what you'd want to buy. They pretty much work the same way as internal Ethernet adapters. They just get their power from the USB port rather than elsewhere. The only disadvantage is you'd always have 1 USB port taken. This won't be a problem if your system has a lot of ports free.
Buy a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter & use it with a good Cat 5(at least) Ethernet cable connected to your ISP modem/router. Ie.

This just means you're playing it safe and not chasing remux files lol I saw it as a great $15 upgrade for my TV to never doubt it's my network when watching large/quality media. If you ever change your mind here's the one I am using.
Trust me, this dongle will solve your speed issues. Not sure what internet speed you have, but I have a gig router and this dongle gets me right between 380-400 Mbps consistently which obviously exceeds the cap of 100 to the built in jack. You do have to have a gig switch or your router close enough to connect the Ethernet cable and you'll notice an immediate jump after you restart the router and TV. Here's a link to the one I personally use but you can use any similar model as long as it goes up to a gig. Unfortunately, like someone already mentioned, for whatever reason the TV has EVERY OTHER OPTION ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH but settled for USB 2.0 instead of 3.0 At least there's 3 😂😂😂! Good luck!

Yeah, if using the TV I definitely recommend getting a USB to Ethernet adapter as the TV on supports 100Mb. The adapter will support up to the maximum USB2 spec which should push closer to you Internet bandwidth. Some 4K streams need up to 125Mb so that could very well be you issue.
I and most other have the following adapter installed: Cable Matters USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Ethernet) Supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_3NW2QGNRZ5KF0AKB3KPJ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Yeah that’s odd mate I use this one with my c1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cable-Matters-SuperSpeed-Gigabit-Ethernet/dp/B00BBD7NFU?pd_rd_w=1IgGG&pf_rd_p=19ea7824-c606-4702-8242-1342370b1024&pf_rd_r=9CDKET5DYNPE8HKWK55Y&pd_rd_r=f251b252-eb78-41a9-8d2b-2c8d3d74562c&pd_rd_wg=bnNmp&am... works no bother (providing Wi-Fi is off and nothing is plugged into the proper Ethernet port) apart from the link lights you wouldn’t know it was working though, I messed with it for ages because it appeared to not be recognised, but as soon as I loaded up a streaming app I realised it had actually been working all along
It's possible the NIC (network interface card) on your computer could be going bad. I'd get a USB to Ethernet adapter and use that for a bit. If no disconnects with that, then it must be your internal NIC. This is the one I've used and like ($15):
Assuming you are from the US. Here is a Amazon.com link.
But any usb 3 gigabit with support for chrome OS will do. Buddy of mine ordered a cheap one from AliExpress. I have it connected to a Atmos soundbar for passthrough, all works great.
On a side note, I am returning the tv this weekend. Because the oled panel isn’t that big of a step up from my AF8 oled. I rather spent a bit more a get a a90j (master series), if you are new to oled the a80j is def a no brainer and will make you very happy.

Never had to unplug it
Others have used a similar dongle to stream 4K Atmos etc from plex to LG, I bought one they recommended, just waiting for the TV to arrive Thursday!

I switched to a Shield Pro, but before that, I was able to raise the speed of my LG to 1 Gbps with this cheap dongle. Fixed buffering issues on 4K remuxes.
Note, it will not show as attached, but the TV will use it for ethernet.
Yup, I bought one for each of mine and now get 300mbps.

Mine would be much faster as I have gigabit internet but I don't want to turn off Wi-Fi as we like to cast to our TVs now and then.
I had the same problem. It all went away when I started using TV's built-in WiFi (using 5GHz signal).
If you still like hard-wired connection, you could try using a USB adaptor like this (read somewhere on Reddit and on Amazon reviews that it works). You can always return if it does not work in your case.
I’ve read on this forum that you can get faster speeds on Ethernet by using a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter. Not sure which one that will be compatible.
Edit: found this on a post. I have not tested this so cannot guarantee if it will work
“This one worked well for me before I decided to buy an Apple TV:”
So I had this issue where I have Virgin Media 350mps everything gets really high speeds PS5 330mps etc but my TV was getting 3.2mps. Noticed it was my cable so ordered a new one Cat8 cable I now get between 40mps-65mps using the speed test on the web browser it says 65mps but each time you do another test it gets worse. Did some research found out that the LG TV’s only have 100mps ports which is ridiculous. I found another 2 speed test websites which state I am getting between 70mps-85mps each test if I just keep redoing the test over and over. I can now stream 4K without any issues but it’s still really frustrating but I have seen other people suggest buying a USB NIC 3.0 to GB port. Link below

Please keep me updated but I have accepted that I get between 40mps-65mps on average which is fine for 4K streaming services.
I know that ppl have success with this one:
Amazon.com: Cable Matters USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Ethernet) Supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black: Computers & Accessories
If you want to try it then stay away from switch version of this adapter - will not work for sure. Looks the same so you need to read.
For the thread - look on a90J owner thread - there are some raports there, its hard to find as its super long and there is no working search, A90J use the same chip as x900H, AFAIK it should not work with x950H
I just received and plugged in my Cablematters Gigabit ethernet USB adapter (Cable Matters USB to Ethernet Adapter (USB 3.0 to Ethernet) Supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Network in Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories) and it just started working immediately.
I tried to run a speed test via the integrated web browser and it appeared to be limited by the internal TV memory or app write speed so couldn't display the full potential download speed properly and only showed 70Mbps. However, the upload speed was 300Mbps+ so it is definitely working and far quicker than the standard ethernet port. Max theoretical speed I will get is of course limited by the USB 2.0 port bandwith of the TV.

This one is confirmed to work with C9/CX. Disconnect from WiFi. It will show disconnected (sometimes seemingly) in your TV but it’ll be working correctly.
I would try purchasing this usb to Ethernet adapter. I use it on my C9 and can confirm it works. If it doesn’t work for you than something is mostly like faulty with your unit and I would try to call LG but I don’t know if there’s much they can do. However you can still just use an external device to do everything, it’s not like you absolutely need WiFi for your TV.

Are you using an LG OLED TV? Those are webOS not Android. But I believe you can even use them on Android TVs, but I don't have any myself. Anyone works on my TV honestly.
This is the one I currently use from Amazon.
TV doesn't actually recognize it and says internet is off, but it still works when you plug it in regardless and TV has Internet access.
Pretty sure it's this one:
It's plug and play. Only thing I notice is a) you don't get any network details (IP address etc) in the TV's UI and you can't play youtube videos from your phone to the TV.
Hey I just bought this and it doesn't work on my switch but someone in the review said that it perfectly works. Does anyone has the same adapter? and if it really doesn't work can I ship it back for my money? I have prime if info needed.
EDIT: It has the blue and green light constently on when i plug it in either the side or back usb, and the orange light is flashing. Which they say it's for "transferring data" but it's been plugged for an hour now.
does having a ethernet to usb adapter affect speeds? I have one but the adapter says it's capable of delivering up to 1gbps
I have this one and it is fantastic:
The one that I had for the wiiU was slower and didn't support gigabit speeds. I hooked that up first, and it was so-so. The Cable Matters adapter literally doubled my speeds.
This is the adapter that is tested: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=pe_3044161_189395811_TE_SCE_dp_1
I have ordered it as well to use on my LG C8. The adapter is said to be working despite the TV not recognizing it or showing the settings.
edit: made a table with the reported working results so far:
Running this on my B8 and its working pretty great.
This one worked well for me before I decided to buy an Apple TV:
In short without watching the video, order this:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share this one worked for me
https://www.amazon.es/dp/B00MYTSN18/ ugreen ones work too iirc
Looking into the USB adapter and I think it's this one...
My tv is LG65B7V
the dongle I bought from Amazon is at the following link;
Please keep in mind that I have also tried a usb 2.0 dongle which the TV didn't recognise, I randomly tried this 3.0 one (got the tip from the LG Wbos forums) and it really did the trick for me. I was going towards bashing-head-against wall frustration levels.
If you're at all concerned, $15 is a pretty small price to pay for some peace of mind. I've been using this one with my Sony TV and it works great:
If you change your mind or anyone finds this useful, this is the dongle I bought for my LG tv. Works great: USB to ethernet
So I believe with whatever newest firmware update for the tv, the usb adapters don’t work anymore. But this is what I use
Sure yes no problem here is the adapter I have
Hope it heals you well
I bought this USB3 LAN Adapter and it works like a CHARM: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU
built in ethernet is only 10/100. Use the USB3 port and connect one of these:
on fiber, I'll get 940/940 with this and everything loads up faster. the Home Screen, streaming tv, everything just works better with it.
>connected to Sony x85j TV with ethernet
Sony TVs are limited to 100Mbps. 4k UHD files can exceed 120Mbps.
Get one of these and plug it into the usb3 port on the TV:

I use this one. Works perfect with my Sony A80J.
If connected with ethernet, that could be the issue. You can always try something like this to increase your throughput.

I don't remember having any wifi issues with my LG B9 OLED using my current 3 X eero 5 non-pro house setup. However I switched to USB Ethernet adapter and I have no issues playing 4k REMUX rips from my plex server. Although wifi should be fine. Check if your TV has "listening mode" and make sure is turned off. https://www.avforums.com/threads/lg-c8-slow-wifi.2204398/ For USB ethernet adapter I recommend this one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU/?th=1

Here's the one I use for A80J - Amazon
The last speed test was close to 500Mbps. Plug it into the USB 3.0 port, and disable Wi-Fi. Good luck!
Thanks for your reply, although I'm not sure if this is exactly the situation which I'm referring to. I'm talking about an ethernet to usb adapter plugged into a usb 3.0 port on the monitor. The usb c cable going from macbook to monitor (but with no hub). This is the kind of ethernet adapter I am talking about https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cable-Matters-SuperSpeed-Gigabit-Ethernet/dp/B00BBD7NFU
If you've got USB 3.0, then here's the answer !! Works on tv's too to get streaming to work better as most only have a 10/100 connection on them !

Just get the cablematters one that works the Sony tv. Plug and play. I’m getting 525/525
OH Yes they do work. This is one I have, which was suggested to me by someone on reddit.
Sure, here's one that has been confirmed to work:
The A90J thread on avsforum.com says this Cable Matters one works:
Haven't tried it myself.
You can easily get over 100mbps on an A80J with this piece of equipment. Just bought it and tested it using the app on the tv.
Just make sure you install the USB on the USB 3.0 behind the tv. There is only 1 on the A80J tv that is 3.0 compatible.
Someone in a comment a couple hours ago linked the cable matters usb ethernet adapter (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU)
If you're not in Canada, I would just search for it on your regional Amazon site.
100 Mbps isn't enough for 4k with a higher bitrate. Wi-fi would be your better choice here or look into the cable matters usb ethernet adapter (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU)
How long have you tested it?
is it this one?
Am confused. So basically, I wanna plug my eGPU into the Ethernet side of one of these
Assuming you're using an 900h or 90j, use this one;
This works. You can even get a USB C adapter and connect it directly to your switch.
Yea I know but thanks, I'm planning to use this one Vincent recommend on YouTube.
This is the adapter I’m using
I would order an Ethernet to USB adapter on Amazon. This is the one I use and like: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_QQSZDHH46FZ14NJ4EN5K?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
If this works, then it tells you something is wrong with your NIC on your PC.
Someone in the thread I linked to linked to this dongle to plug into the LG TV usb port and they say it works. That'd be much cheaper than anything else.
This can speed up your LGs ethernet. Shield is still the best choice though.
If it comes down to it, you may want to use a USB to Ethernet. You'll get faster speeds than the internal ethernet.
I got this one from the video. It seems like it does look better. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_ZJQCH8GF8FSRY9ZJKNVF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

The odd thing is, you won't see it connected when checking the network settings on your TV, so you won't be able to assign it a static IP address. It'll grab an IP via DHCP from your network. But it works via plug and play and it works on any of the USB ports. As a test I connected it to my C7 and it worked on it as well.
Goes for most smart tvs. Don't know of any newer TV with a gigabit ethernet port :(. You can buy an USB adapter on Amazon that works on some tv's: LINK
I'm using this adapter plugged into the usb port plugged into the left side of the TV (USB3). Have tested upto 140mbit/s HEVC file on https://jell.yfish.us/ which plays fine.
This one was confirmed to work with the a90j
What you need is a USB 3.0 ethernet adapter with type A (was the universal standard before USB-C) USB 2 ethernet adapters are limited to 100mbps and when the 3.0 versions are like $1-2 more there is almost no point to get 2.0 anymore (there are special use cases)
USB 3 is typically shown with the blue plastic in the center of the USB end.
USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2 ports so it will work at whatever the port on the device can handle.
you may also want the multi hub linked above as one port means you cant use more than one thing at a time.
I got this one that resolved my issues and has worked flawlessly so far.
As a follow up, I received this today: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU
Works just as I would have expected the NIC to perform - full gigabit speed with the original cable setup and no additional latency, so I'll be using this going forward to reclaim my switch.
My first search results for "Cable Matters" came up with
that explicitly states " This product is NOT compatible with the Nintento Switch." (Mispelling theirs.)
The 2nd adapter didn't say the same thing on their own site but did on their Amazon listing.
Is it a different model?
I got this USB to Ethernet adapter for my LG OLED. It finally made my 4K experience near flawless. Internal NIC is only 10/100.
I've tried WiFi with the TV but it seems even less stable than the 100Mbps wired, However, I've read that this USB NIC will work to add Gb networking to the LG C9: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=A1AMUYYA3CT6HJ&psc=1
my upload is 50Mbps, but i just checked and Plex is set to limit remote stream rate to 10 Mbps, so that mystery is solved, The bit rate shown under 'Get Info' for the video in question is 13,852 which sounds correct, I will re-analyze and try again.
The 1 & 2 TB drives are all 2.5" drives because That's all that would fit in my old Rackmount Case, also minimal power consumption, my whole rack draws less than 250W under full load (CPU pegged 100%). I planed to replace them as they fail, but they are proving to be too reliable (the newest one is 4 years old). There is nothing really sensitive on the drives, I might be able to zero them and resell them rather than recycling good drives. The new case has 10x 3.5" hot swap bays that I'll put 8-10 TB drives in as I upgrade (these will be shucked external drives) and since Macrium Reflect continues to fail me, I also plan to get a Synology just for PC & Offsie Backup (there is a synology at my parents place) so that'll free up a drive bay (this is the 1.5 TB drive currently)
The JBOD controllers don't take 2 slots, they take 2 PCIe lanes, ie the connector is too long to fit in a PCIe x1 slot, but only half as long as a PCIe x4 slot. Some Mobos use open ended x1 slots for such oddball cards, they will just operate at 1/2 speed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#/media/File:PCIe_J1900_SoC_ITX_Mainboard_IMG_1820.JPG If I get rid of one of the 2.5" hot swap caddies (I'll keep one for 2.5" SSDs) I can eliminate 1 of the JBOD controllers and get a board with 2 PCIe x16 slots.
I found an H470 board with open ended x1 slots, So $370 gets me:
CPU: i5-10400 $180
Mobo: ASRock H470 STEEL LEGEND (has 2 x16 slots & 2 open ended x1 slots & 2.5Gb NIC so I wont need to up to a 10G NIC as soon) $140
RAM: 16GB DDR4 $50
This will give me 2 x1 slots for my JBOD controllers (if I keep both), 2 x16 slots (one for a future 10Gb NIC, and one for a future GPU if needed, maybe a P4000 if they suddenly drop in price)
mine works pretty good. Been a frustrating start.
Whenever i would remove the Thunderbolt cable from my MBPro the system would crash.
Also, the Ethernet port doesn't work. I just replaced with an Ethernet to USB 3 cable (Gigabit) and it works great. Here's the adapter I ordered from Amazon:
I am going to order the new Apple Thunderbolt cable. Not thrilled about $130 but I wish i had that one before i tried to save a few bucks on the Belkin one.
I can't find my Amazon order but I think this is the one I bought:
Check out the following Reddit thread for info on adapters - https://www.reddit.com/r/PleX/comments/cg0y03/someone_got_a_usb_gigabit_ethernet_adapter/
This is the one I'm using - https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00BBD7NFU
OK thanks, I'm just on day two of trying to plan my build.
So would you use something like this going into your switch?
Few suggestions then at this point, in no particular order:
USB to Ethernet adapter instead of using the built-in: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-SuperSpeed-Gigabit-Ethernet/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1522086886&sr=8-8&keywords=usb+to+ethernet
Install your own internal ethernet: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Gigabit-Ethernet-PCI-Express-TG-3468/dp/B003CFATNI/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522086941&sr=1-3&keywords=pcie+ethernet+card
Reinstall Windows 10 and make sure to install the drivers only (which may or may not actually fix the problem)
I would recommend 1 or 2 as they are cheap solutions that should work without any further issues.
I have this one and it works perfect:
This adapter does not work!
Should of tested it before i ripped apart the plastic housing to take the chip out :(.
I have the Cable Matters brand here. Works AWESOME:
I got the Cable Matters one and even though the lights flash on the adapter the Switch won't connect using it. Going to have to send it back.
Cable Matters SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter in Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_W-WVyb3M8V1GA
Or a USB one (eg: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00BBD7NFU?psc=1)
I bought this USB 3.0/Gigabit adapter last year and it has worked great.
There's a USB > ethernet adaptor
I had the same issue - one day it works, then it goes out again. I bought this one.
This is what I use. It's cheaper, and it's not made by a bastard company that tries to fuck you in the ass.
Also you hardly need a $200 device if you're so bent out of shape about it. $15 prob solved you're welcome.
