Thanks for the help

If anyone can find a good USB to CAT 5/6 adapter price I would be grateful. The prices seem to vary between a couple of quid and £25.

Need a way of connecting my laptop - with only USB ports - to a cable network.

May I ask why this is being voted cold?

Probably because signal range wont be great and price isnt that great

You are saving £10 and so far the signal range is more impressive than an old D-Link N. I use this in my summerhouse in the back garden and the router is currently a good 40 meters away through around 4 walls.

Reviews off this is pretty bad

It seems alot of the reviews are people complaining about installation and CD's missing. Always ALWAYS download the latest drivers from the website...

That's presumably on basis you don't have a WiFi Wireless router to connect the laptop by WiFi to ?

Assuming laptop has WiFi circuitry, why not create a WiFi network with a £11 pocket sized gizmo that has many purposes...
- create WiFi hotspot from Ethernet connection
or create Wifi hotspot from USB modem plugged into it (3G/4G)
or even recharge your USB device from its built-in battery

I bought my first one from HK/China for c£7 but it came with Chinese firmware and took a bit of research to reflash.
Bought 'worked out of box' one from UK eBay seller for c£10, - have a look at Ebay UK item 290950506256 now gone up to £11.
I regular use one when travelling with a 3G USB Modem, and another at home from wired Ethernet to create an extra WiFi spot for NowTV box (which really hates my BT Home Hub 3). The software version I got on it was very "plug and play".

Otherwise if not able/wishing to WiFi - why not just buy an eBay USB-Ethernet RJ45 for c£2-£4 where they have sold lots before you and have good feedback ? If I was in your shoes I'd aim to buy one with a short cable between the USB connector & RJ45 socket to minimise strain on your USB socket with pull of cabling - though watch out for your version of Windows (I assume!) being specifically supported!

Thanks - I need it so that when I go to places, such as corporates, who only have wired connections.


Yes, I want one with a short cable to avoid damage to my laptop USB port if it accidentally gets pulled out.

Ah that makes sense now. Well I'd be tempted to splash out on a "5in1" WiFi/USB gizmo like my £11 one to create your own WiFi hotspot, which would give your SmartPhone access too lol, otherwise just "gamble" £2-£4 on popular/reputable eBay USB-RJ45 to match your laptop operating system.
