In a release today, March 24 it said:
Plugable, the leading developer of USB, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth and power-related devices, announces the availability of the Plugable 2.5 Gigabit USB Ethernet Adapter. The Plugable 2.5 Gigabit USB Ethernet Adapter is the best way to upgrade laptops and desktops with faster wired connection speeds.
The Plugable adapter pushes the limits of wired network connectivity with improved performance speed and faster network access thanks to additional bandwidth. While most Ethernet adapters only support 1 Gigabit link rates, this adapter now supports wired speeds up to 2.5 times faster than the 1Gbps standard when used with Cat 5e cabling, commonly found in existing network environments, and supporting hardware (switches and routers). With this increased performance, users can take advantage of the technological advances in high-speed internet over the past few years, without requiring an intensive set-up.
