One of the offices I work in does not have WiFi. I work for the government and we're not allowed to have an unsecure WiFi router. I tried bringing in my own router and they shut off my port in a couple of days. So, I need a wired connection at times. This little dongle does the trick. I plugged it in. It worked in seconds. After a bit of use, it does get slightly warm to the touch. I figured since it gets warm with the Macbook on sleep, that it must be eating up the battery, but I couldn't see a significant difference in the battery percentage. Obviously, the heat comes from somewhere so it consumes some power, though not enough to worry about.

Tried a Radio Shack USB adapter kit. The MBA wouldn't detect it. Returned it and got the Apple adapter. The Mac detected it immediately and let me connect to a router via ethernet.

Can't speak for all of them, but a warning is in order. The particular one that I ordered (from a third party vendor via Amazon) did not work. I took it to an Apple store for assistance and after a thorough inspection, they explained that it was a very good imitation, but not a genuine Apple product. I subsequently purchased a genuine one from the Apple store that worked perfectly and instantly. Amazon customer service, as always, came through for me and gave me a full refund. Amazon rocks.

I have received criticism for rating this product one star when the product I received was admittedly a counterfeit. My reasoning is simple, if I had rated it five stars, people might assume as I did that when ordering this product from Amazon, they were getting the genuine Apple product, which was not my experience.

As I indicated, the genuine Apple product purchased from an Apple retail store worked flawlessly and would rate five stars.

A simple plug-and-play adapter that works like a charm. Wish it were a little cheaper, but not having to deal with downloading and installing of drivers needed for non-native product may just well be worth the premium.

Unless you really don't wan to have to install a special driver, or you really just want to stick with Apple brand, maybe you should get a generic or Amazon Basics USB->Ethernet adapter instead of this one.

This one is capped at 100megabits per second. If you read the product description carefully, you'll see that. Otherwise, you might think you'll get the USB maximum of 480megabits/second out of it on a GigE network. You won't. For only 100Mb/s, it's hardly worth what you pay for it, although the quality is good and it works as advertised.

Plugging this in, you are not going to go faster than 802.11n wifi speed. The only reason to use this is when there is ONLY a wired, and not a wifi network.

Was somewhat hesitant to buy with all the forum talk about difficulty to make Mac recognize the hardware. At first I to had the problem, however,buy pulling it out and back into the USB port Mac found it and it works.
However, because of the new os 10.7 lion I have had much problems with the recognition with this device.
If you want one for use as a dongle for your ethernet then stay with os.10.6 snow leopard. ESP. With MacBook air.
As apple tech mentioned they use it for computer to computer file transfers an not as an Ethernet device!
Interesting!
