There are other converters out there that provide more reliable data transfer at higher speeds, but this is a great buy for the money and will suffice for just about any task you need it for.
The adapter (TU2-ET100) arrived yesterday. The USPS shipping was a bit slow, having actually PASSED my house in route to another hub before coming to me. But the packing was good, and it was in a nice box with a CD and fairly basic instruction book. I did not need either. The adapter itself is pretty light weight, but not fragile. It's a little boxy, but that actually is a good thing as I want it to sit flat.
Within a second of plugging this in to my Tivo, it had obtained an IP address from my router and was churning away with full-duplex speed! The world of networked Tivo has opened lots of cool doors, thanks to this simple little adapter! According to the box, this adapter WILL work with the Nintendo Wii, as well.
Note to those looking... BE CAREFUL not to mistake this with the TRENDnet USB to 10/100Mbps Adapter (TU-ET100C) adapter, which sells for a similar price (slightly cheaper) and looks more "modern", but only operates on the USB 1.1 specification.
Also note... don't waste your time going to Best Buy. They don't sell these, and the guy who offered to help me find it told me matter-of-factly that "there is no such thing as a USB>Ethernet adapter." Sure thing, buddy.
With the release of Mac OS X Lion (10.7), the TrendNET adapters no longer work with TrendNET's own drivers. I submitted a help desk ticket to TrendNET's tech support inquiring about the status of drivers for Lion, and received the following response:
"We do not have drivers for the MAC os [sic] 10.7 and do not have any current plans to support the 10.7 OS."
But fear not: It's easy to get these working with Lion. The chip inside this adapter is a Prolific 2303; there are several USB-to-serial adapter that use this chip. Prolific itself produces a 64-bit driver for this chipset, and lo, the TU-S9 works once it is installed. The driver can be found by Googling 'PL-2303 driver'. It's the file labeled `md_PL2303_MacOSX10.6_dmg_v1.4.0.zip' on the resulting page (or was at the time I wrote this review).
I just tested it with my TU-S9 and it works once I install this driver. Enjoy!
There's no difficult installation either, just run the setup on the included micro-cd and you're up and working in no time!
Kudos to TRENDnet for making such a great product at a great price!
