I have both a HP Chromebook (USB 2) and a Samsung Chromebook USB 3, do you have an adapter that will work with both?
Thanks for posting your question here! Chrome OS has inbuilt support for all our USB Ethernet adapters and all of them will work with any Chromebook. Once any of our USB Ethernet adapters is connected to the system and a live Ethernet cable is connected to it, the green and amber LEDs will light up and Chromebook will recognize the Ethernet connection.
As USB 3.0 is backward compatible with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 Ethernet adapter will work when connected to a USB 2.0 port and a USB 2.0 Ethernet adapter will work when connected to a USB 3.0 port.
If you would prefer to use the additional bandwidth offered by USB 3.0 when using the Samsung Chromebook with a USB 3.0 port, then I’d recommend getting Plugable USB3-E1000. Otherwise Plugable USB2-E1000 or Plugable USB2-E100 will work with both systems.
Hope the above information helps! If you need any additional information, please do feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help!
