    Hey folks,

    Is it possible to use a UA Apollo twin thunderbolt (or any thunderbolt) with a non-thunderbolt MacBook pro by using the thunderbolt to ethernet adapter and going into the ethernet on the computer?

    Any thoughts or other suggestions are appreciated.

    I plan on upgrading the computer as soon as the new models are released so this is hopefully just a temporary fix.

    Thank you!

    No. These are not two way devices, and they must be connected to a thunderbolt computer. There's no way to use a thunderbolt device of any kind on a computer that doesn't have thunderbolt.
