GIgabit to USB dongle for a Flea
      #5647199 - 01/27/13 11:49 PM

Hi all,

I wondered is anyone can recommend a Gigabit Ethernet to USB3 dongle to use with a Point Grey Flea?

Thank you,

I use an USB3.0 to GigE Ethernet Adapter
by StarTech (StarTech.com)
Model USB31000S

Works just fine for me.

Confusedly, are you guys running into computers that don't have GigE ports but yet do have USB3 ports?

I've been in computers too long that I find that ironic!

Ethernet is getting omitted more often from new laptops or especially ultrabooks. They want to make them thinner and thinner.

Valery, Thank you, I'll see if I can find one...

Mike, Yes, I have an ultrabook I want to use. Mine has ethernet but it's 10/100 and I have two USB3 ports.

Greg

no ethernet ?? Geez ..and we as consumers are letting 'em get away wi' that ?? I know they're supposed to be light /thinnish and portable but at the expense of something like that- Crazy ! I'll stick with my ol' faithful Thinkpad

Karlo,
Not sure how it is in the rest of the world, but this is the only ethernet use I have with the laptop. Connections are wireless at home, office and on the road at least at the 90% level. I even wifi to my cell for tethering.

It is something to pay attention to though.
