How To Run Third-Party USB Ethernet Adaptors with Your Apple Macbook Notebook

0  comments

Ever since Apple started trimming down the ports on their Macbook notebooks, there’s been an increasing demand for adaptors to make up for the lack of connectivity. Today, I found out that I needed to access my Asus wireless router to set it up for a new ISP that I subscribed to. Unfortunately, I only had a third-party, non-Apple ethernet adaptor. In this case, it was a USB ethernet dongle from Lenovo.

When I plugged it into my Macbook, nothing happened. Clearly, Apple only provided drivers and support for their own Apple adaptors. Thankfully, there were third-party drivers for common USB ethernet adaptors. Plugable had the Mac drivers for the USB2-E100 and USB2-OTGE100 chipsets, which were pretty common in third-party USB ethernet dongles. When I installed it on my Macbook Air, the Lenovo USB ethernet dongle came alive and started working.
