Computers (Built in Ethernet or USB adapter to Ethernet)


A wired (or LAN) connection to the Gigacenter is going to have a more predictable result as long as some criteria is met by the computer:

  • Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface Card or 10/100/1000 BaseT (NIC)
  • Many laptops don't have Ethernet ports so a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter is required.

Manufacture date How is Ethernet connected? Maximum expected speed
2010 or later Ethernet connector 930 Mbps
2010 - 2014 USB 2.0 to Ethernet adapter 400 Mbps
2014 or later USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter 930 Mbps
earlier than 2010 Ethernet connector 100 Mbps
