TP-LINK UE300 USB 3.0 To Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter
+ 20% off w/ promo code 28FBLQTYS448, limited offer



I grabbed the "limit 2" to add to my toolbox. Sometimes, you need a USB ethernet to bootstrap a build that has a newer mobo (and newer LAN chipset) than the current build of Windows supports out-of-the-box. (Although, Win10 has been VERY GOOD about this.)

Promo code expires in less than 24hrs from now.

They are out of stock....what's the next best thing? Should I get the one with the USB ports ontop of it for 19.99? (If it's in stock!) Thanks!

Seems like a reasonable plan.

And before you go off to ebay, and get one of their unbranded ones from China for half the price, consider this - most of them have embedded malware in them. At least, that was my experience trying those units on my PCs. NEVER AGAIN.

Never! I don't trust their stuff!
