    Hello,

    I want to purchase an ethernet adapter for a wired connection.

    I want to use the adapter for both Mac and Windows.

    I am considering the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter or the Apple USB Ethernet Adapter.

    I heard there may be issues with the Thunderbolt adapter and Windows.

    What should I get?

    Thanks.

    if your windows machine has TB than why not? but just note that once you get that adaptor you will lose the TB port i think a USB is the way to go. That way if you decide to get something else that requires a thunderbolt port you have the option to.

    I'll be using Windows on my MacBook using Boot Camp.
