My laptop's on board Ethernet just died today. I don't have time to send it back to the manufacturer as I am in college. I'm looking for other alternatives and I came across a USB to ethernet converter. It is a TRENDnet TU-ET100C 10/ 20/ 100/ 200Mbps USB to Ethernet Adapter 1 x RJ45. Now my only question is will I get the same speeds I got from my on board which was standard 10/100 Cat5? I'm just curious about speed, as I am a gamer. If you have any other alternatives please tell me!
