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.
