USB to Ethernet Adapter with Native Windows XP support

Hello all,

Can anyone tell me if there is a Plugable USB to Ethernet adapter that will automatically load in Windows XP? I am imaging tablets and they need internet access to register. I am unable to load drivers until after I activate the product.


Hi jeremyn,

Thanks for asking ahead about our USB Ethernet adapters and Windows XP. Unfortunately, Windows includes very few USB drivers built in and uses Windows Update to get the drivers for new hardware as it is installed. If there’s no way for you to load drivers before registering the devices, and you need internet access to register, our USB to Ethernet adapters will not work for your needs.

Sorry I don’t have better news,

Plugable Technologies

Bummer, but thank you for the quick and informative reply.
