    I've bought an USB-to-ethernet-adapter and a minidisplay-port-to-VGA-adapter. But I can't use them at the same time. At first, I plugged those two adapters and only the USB-to-ethernet worked. I tried restarting the mac then only the VGA-adapter worked. I also tried to reinstall the OS.

    I'm using new 13-inch MacBook Air early 2015. OS X 10.10.3.

    MacBook Air, OS X Yosemite (10.10.3). Thanks for any advice.

    Have you tried one of the many Thunderbolt docks? it IS $200+ for one but that wold solve all your issues. Have you tried the second USB port? different adapters? try other DP-VGA adapters and usb-ethernet adapters. be sure to use the usb port next to the magsafe to minimize possible interference.
