Realized that none of my equipment support 2.5Gbps after buying the adapter…
Please note that these are not explicit recommendations, and may not be the best value dollar-for-dollar. Just pointing out what options may be available.
It is still early days for 2.5GBASE-T, and while some vendors have announced switches and routers supporting the standard, there still aren’t many options on the market at the time of writing.
Most of the consumer-grade routers I’m aware of that have 2.5Gbps Ethernet ports really only have one port that goes into the LAN at that speed. For example the Netgear RAX200 https://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/RAX200.aspx
Most of the switches with 2.5Gbps Ethernet are made by Netgear as well. They have a landing page with a breakdown of which models support 2.5GbE here https://www.netgear.com/landings/multi-gig/
There are models from other vendors as well, but there aren’t many, and the ones that are available are still fairly expensive. Here’s a couple options from Trendnet as well https://www.trendnet.com/products/featured-products?id=3
Many vendors are labelling these switches as ‘Multi-Gig’, or some variant of that language.
It is also worth noting that networks can be established point-to-point between two USBC-E2500 adapters for faster transfers directly between two computers.
I hope this helps!
