It's adapter is USB 2.0 hub with 3 type A ports and a 10/100M fast ethernet port,and a 5 volt power adapter. Much like a cheap docking station for Android or Windows tablets and smartphones. However the power adapter is only for delivering extra power to the USB ports, not for charging the host device.

What's going on. (Yosemite Version).

The old drivers still work, no problem, but are being blocked in Yosemite because they aren't 'signed' properly, since they weren't re-issued for Yosemite. As 'unsigned' drivers, Mac OS refuses to load them, saying they constitute a security hazard.

What step 5 does is instructs your computer to set itself to 'developer mode', which allows you to load unsigned kexts. This is a mild security risk, but it should be fine for most people. If you're in doubt, please make the decision that makes the most sense for your security concerns. You might be better off just buying legit Apple hardware so you don't have to disable the security. That's your call.

If you ever do go legit and want to undo it, just run sudo nvram boot-args='kext-dev-mode=0, and things will be back where you left them.

What's going on. (El Capitan Version).

In short, it's the same scenario as Yosemite, just stricter. Apple has a new security mode, called 'System Integrity Protection' (SIP) that prevents anyone - even you with your password - from modifying system files.

The old drivers still work, no problem, but are being blocked in El Capitan because they aren't 'signed' properly, since they weren't re-issued for El Capitan. As 'unsigned' drivers, Mac OS refuses to load them, saying they constitute a security hazard.

The csrutil disable step turns off SIP for your entire system, which allows you to load and use the drivers. This also disables malware protection for your machine, and given that we've started to see genuine malware for OS X in the wild, it's a slightly larger security risk than it was in Yosemite.

If you're in doubt, please make the decision that makes the most sense for your security concerns. You might be better off just buying legit Apple hardware so you don't have to disable the security. That's your call.

If you ever do go legit and want to undo it, just reboot into recovery mode and run csrutil enable, and things will be back where you left them.

Anyhow, after hours of searching and pulling out my own hair, I thought it'd be worth sharing the solution! Enjoy!

Android compatibility

Some Android devices include drivers for our device, however each device maker includes different drivers. Unlike Windows, Mac, or Linux, users cannot install any device driver to Android. If the Android device does not have a pre-installed device driver for the AX88772 chip set, this adapter cannot work.

Most Android systems have a microUSB port instead of a standard full-sized USB port. In this case, instead of this product, please consider using the Plugable USB2-OTGE100 Ethernet adapter. It has the same AX88772 chip set but features a microUSB connector.

FAQ


Q. Does this Ethernet adapter work with Windows 10?
A. Yes, Windows 10 has built-in the device driver for this adapter.

Q. What do the green and amber LEDs on the Plugable USB2-E100 indicate?
A. The green power LED on the Plugable USB2-E100 is an indication that the Ethernet cable plugged into the adapter is live and it stays steady as long as the live cable is plugged in. The blinking amber link LED is an indications that data is transferring through the adapter.

Both these LEDs will not light up when:
1) The adapter is not receiving enough power because it is plugged into a port that does not provide the required 500mA of power
2) The drivers for the adapter have not installed properly or is corrupted
3) The Ethernet Cable plugged in is not live or is faulty
4) The adapter has failed

Q. I feel this adapter is getting warm when using.
A. The chip set AX88772 has been used for years and widely adapted to various devices, hence this adapter is compatible with various PC Operating Systems and many consumer devices.
Our adapters get warm because the AX88772 converts the 5 volts that are used in the logic chips to the much lower voltage used for Ethernet. The excess voltage is dissipated as heat. Since the chip is designed for this, the heat doesn’t cause it any troubles. Unless it gets very hot, it’s normal that the unit is getting warm.

Q. Are there any known software conflicts?
A. For Mac users, there is a known conflict with the Android File Transfer Program.
