    I just purchased a PC laptop with windows 8.1 and NO Ethernet port!
    I'm running a pangolin .net setup.

    so I pickup up a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter, and YES it worked flawless!
    no delays no dropouts , even used an apc40 and all worked well.

    one important note though:

    the apc40 will not work on Beyond with any USB 3.0 ports!,
    luckily , the laptop I purchased, came with 1 USB 2.0 port, and as soon as I plugged in the apc40 to that port, it automatically recognized it. (was not aware of this).

    Hmmm, I will try to test the APC40 on the 3.0 ports of my home PC. They should be backwards compatable and all... :rolleyes:

    hi Aaron,

    let me know if your Apc40 works with your usb 3 port,
    I have not had a chance to try it out again.
