@TheCoolest: Wow, that’s impressive! I just ordered one.
Thank you for the above information.
TBH, that is what I would expect when connecting such a gigabit USBNet dongle to a USB2 port. Not long ago, I bought a Kebidumei 100Mbps Micro USB 2.0 RJ45 Network Adapter under US $2 and it has an ASIX AX8872b USBNET chip. I use it on my Seagate Dockstar with debian OS and it’s capable of pumping out 90+ Mbps (around 10 MBps data) up/down stream when tested using this Digirati F3 utility to an NFS drive on a Seagate GoFLEX Home.
