Question from Carmen: I have an HP laptop that I use both at home and at work.
I have to connect to our office network via the wired Ethernet port because we don’t have Wi-Fi there (my boss says WiFi is a security risk).
The problem is the laptop’s built-in Ethernet adapter got fried a couple of days ago when a power surge took out my router at home.
My brother gave me an old USB to Ethernet adapter to do in the interim, but I really need to get one that works at Gigabit speed because we transfer large files all the time at work.
Can you recommend a good USB Gigabit Ethernet adapter that won’t cost me an arm and a leg that will plug into a USB 3.0 port? [Read more…]
