Customer Reviews of Linksys EtherFast USB100TX Network Adapter - USB - 1 x RJ-45 - 10/100Base-TX
Old and slow12/28/2013
Very out of date item, in need of a new version. Even though it's a 10/100 adapter, USB1.1 limits the speed to 12Mbps. Packet latency is also terrible. Comes with drivers on floppy disk, which is pretty much useless. Link/activity LEDs don't operate under Linux.
I needed a USB to Ethernet for a series two TiVo and this one works.
Just the bit of retro tech I needed5/22/2012
Mom gave me her ancient TiVo with lifetime service, and I didn't want to drag my wireless network down to B speeds to get it connected so I bought this affordable USB ethernet interface to play better with my network. It works perfectly and is TiVo-approved so it required no configuration, just plug and play.
