What tablets can I buy that will work with the Plugable USB2-E100?

Do you have an up to date list of Android Tablets or simply tablets that the Plugable USB2-E100 will work with? (tested and known to work with no wi-fi).
Shopping for a tablet and need to know which tablet will work.

Hi there,

Most of the cases an Android tablet has a micro USB port but not any full-sized USB port. In that case you must use an additional OTG adapter or cable to use USB2-E100, which has a full size Type-A connector.

We have a USB 2.0 to Fast Ethernet adapter that has a micro USB connector with OTG capability. This adapter is using the same AX88772 chip set with the USB2-E100. If you are using this, you do not need to add any adapter. The product page of this USB2-OTGE100 Ethernet adapter has the Android compatibility information:

http://plugable.com/products/usb2-otg…

Please note that the compatibility is completely Android device dependent. Only if the Android manufacture has built-in the device driver into their device when the tablet was shipped, this adapter can work. If not, there was not any way to make it work since Android doesn’t allow users to install any device driver.

Even if something wrong happened to the pre-installed device driver for whatever the reasons, there is not any way to fix it, neither, unless the manufacturer deliver the fix as a part of the future builds. Hence we cannot and do not guarantee that the compatibility list is 100% accurate. Thank you for your understanding.

Hope this helps!

Sachiko
