USB-Ethernet Adapter working


Hello everyone,

for more than 2 years now, I struggle to find a working USB-Adapter for LAN-Internet on my FP3 and FP4.

There a quite a few threads here in the Forum, but some of them are closed and there are also new USB-Adaptors on the market. Since I finally found a solution for all my needs. I want to share that with you. Maybe I can help some of you and save you some time.

Last year with the help of the posts here in the forum I found a USB-A Ethernet Adaptor that worked for both of my FPs ( i-tec U3METALGLAN ), but for using it on the FPs I had to use a USB-A to USB-C Adaptor in front of it. After a short time i had problemes with network interruptions. I bought new USB-A to USB-C adapters, but quickly the problems came back, I also had to unplug the adaptor and plug in again very often to reconnect the internet. That was frustrating and on top of it the bulky USB-A to C Adapter was annoying.

I decided to buy a new Ethernet-Adapter this time with build in USB-C
I tested some Adaptors and here is what I found out about the USB-C Ethernet-Adaptors:
