Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still not for Mac OS X 10.11 Though promoted, even the driver from 3/1/2016 does not do its job. It's very disappointing to hear development is working on this issue for such a long time without a positive result. Apple products might be expensive, but they work. This adapter is slightly cheaper, but does not work, and nobody seam to care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent solution! I recently purchased a new laptop which satisfies my needs admirably, but it has no Ethernet port for wired internet access. This device solves the problem without any fuss.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy This only works if you boot with the device connected. If you deconnect it and reconnect it, it won't work until you reboot. Very bad device.
