First to the problem:
I’ve connect a Plugable USB2-E1000 to an android tv in an attempt to make a simple and inexpensive receiver for a pair of network tuners. The E1000 was attractive to me because it matches with the mibox’s USB2 port while still being able to eke out a bit more push than the typical 10/100 adapters. The solution comes near to working perfectly.

The E1000 connected flawless without any pleading from me. The snag, though: It does not reconnect in a timely fashion (or at all, really) after the mibox is woken from sleep. I’ve tested it thoroughly and sought several workarounds, but in the end, my $7 AmazonBasics USB 2.0 - 10/100Mbps adapter is getting the job done.
I really have no expectation that the E1000 should have behaved in a way beneficial to me in this circumstance, so don’t register any complaint from my posting above. Even though I would certainly like it to work here, it’s easy to resign myself to that impossibility when a practical solution is already in hand. Discobot will be sad to learn that groovy case is not currently on display.
Nonetheless, if the design team intersects with this forum at any point, perhaps it can be put into a to do for the USB2-E1001?
