By: Athena
So this is the adapter supplied by my help desk for a laptop it is not what I request as it is thicker then the laptop so actually lifts it up when plugged in. For the first few years it worked ok, have to plug it into the same usb port every time or setup the connection again but now I have to insert it just right and not wiggle or anything to get to function sometime it takes 2 or 3 times and different ports on the laptop to get it going. Very annoying since the only time I bother with it is when I NEED it such as configuring fresh out of the box equipment or network upgrades. Just sad that it has probably only been used 50 or so times and it isn't working

Matt, Customer Support
Hello Athena, We're sorry to hear about the difficulties you're having with our USB31000NDS. Due to the size of the Ethernet port on this adapter, it may be thicker than some ultra-books and thin laptops and for those computers, we recommend an adapter with a built-in cable such as our USB31000S. The USB31000NDS has a 2-year warranty with lifetime technical support and we'd like to speak with you further as you should not be experiencing any disconnecting issues. Please feel free to contact us at www.startech.com/support for assistance. Our Technical Advisors are available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week to provide support.
