    Hello,

    I am planning to buy below USB Ethernet adapter driver for my Macbook Air.

    http://www.tp-link.com/lk/products/details/cat-5062_UE300.html

    I have Thunderbolt to Ethernet cable from Apple but I use Thunderbolt port for HDMI cable. So all I left is USB port for Ethernet.

    Although product says it is Mac compatible but especially I want to ask before purchasing because I have read there are some driver issues with other third party USB Ethernet adapters.

    Do you recommend this kind of third party USB Ethernet adapters?

    P.S. I have WIFI available but I do not find it reliable.

    Cheers

    TP Link is pretty well known, I doubt you will run into an issue... but if you did.. it helps that they indicate that it is "Mac Compatible".. as that will mean either they have a support team to address issues between their products and the macs they will be used with... or it will mean you will have a very easy RMA process should it not work for some reason.

    My Plugable USB 3 --> Gigabit adapter has been flawless with my MBP. I get the same speedtest results using that as I do on another Mac that has built in ethernet. And it has the advantage of being a few dollars cheaper than your TP-Link.
