can I use the USB2-E1000 usb 2 Ethernet adaptor with my nexus 7 tablet?

Can you please let me know what do i need to do to get this to work with Nexus 7 tablet?


Thank you for contacting Plugable support! I’d be more than happy to assist you.

Currently the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 does not work with many USB Ethernet adapters including ours. The original Nexus 7 did and this has caused some confusion.

Here’s a discussion on the XDA Developers forum about the issue for more information:…

There has already been a bug report and patch for the issue reported to Google but it has not yet been implemented:… and https://android-review.googlesource.c…

Unfortunately at this point, it is up to Google to correct the issue. The issue however has been corrected in a 3rd party Android called CyanogenMod but that is not an option for most users.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know of other questions.

Thanks again for contacting Plugable support and best wishes!
