Now you can connect to any 10, 100, or 10/100Mbps hub or switch without having to open your PC. The EtherFast USB100TX Network Adapter from Linksys allows you to instantly connect to a network from a USB enabled desktop or notebook PC with Windows 98. The Plug-and-Play compatible device attaches to any USB-enabled PC or hub via a USB Type B receptacle. Connect a standard Category 5 network cable into the other end the EtherFast USB100TX Network Adapter, install the included network software drivers, and go. You will be networked in no time.

Very out of date item, in need of a new version.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.
