Installation and Use The first hurdle is drivers: It appears that most use the same chipset, made by a Taiwanese firm called ASIXand thus would be similar apart from price. My eye was eventually drawn to an inexpensive USB 3. They just set their machines to sequentially ehhernet their adapters starting at all-zeroes. They even support Windows CE 6. Duplicate MAC addresses can be seriously bad news. Cable matters superspeed usb 3.0 to rj45 gigabit ethernet adapter first hurdle is drivers: This is a fun way to identify devices at a glance: What is this, Windows?
This meant buying a sizable powered USB 3. A collision with an ancient Xerox adapter is inconceivable, but I remain concerned that other ASIX-supplied adapters could reuse the same Then I uncovered a serious annoyance: Once I changed the service order, everything appeared to be cable matters superspeed usb 3.0 to rj45 gigabit ethernet adapter smoothly. Although a collision there remains unlikely since there are other elements to the global IPv6 address, we will likely see lots of archaic Xerox addresses out there in the wild.
If everything works as planned, every Ethernet device will have a globally-unique address. And other manufacturers are likely doing the same thing. This might not matter to most people, but old-school geeks like me know that this is not a legal and kosher value.

Once the drivers are installed, superspesd functions adequately. Every Ethernet device has a MAC address, which is used to identify it on the network. Is this a problem?
