The ADVANCE Series is the highest level of i-tec accessories bringing you the cutting edge technologies of products with a modern design and exclusive packaging.
Combination of passive USB 3.0 HUB with Gigabit Ethernet adapter, for easy and fast connection of your favorite USB peripherals to your notebook, tablet or PC using a single USB cable, and for fast network and Internet access with Gigabit Ethernet connection. Thanks to its compact dimensions and low weight it is an ideal accessory when traveling.
It offers three USB 3.0 ports with the Plug & Play function and standard USB charging – the HUB will automatically detect connected equipment for USB charging. The USB 3.0 interface is important mainly for data transfers from USB 3.0 memory cards and flash disks which will use its high transfer speed most. This HUB is powered from the USB bus and it has a built-in overcurrent protection of your computer in case of short connection on the peripheries. The interface is compatible with USB 2.0.
The Gigabit Ethernet port allows fast network and Internet access with Gigabit Ethernet connection. You no need to purchase an extra Gigabit network card and share a PCI/PCIe or Express/CardBus slot. With compliance with USB 3.0 specification, this adapter ensures true 10/100/1000 Mbps network speed without any compromise. The network connection can also be used in the Android system. However, the support of this function must be included by the manufacturer directly in the particular Android device. You can easily check this support in Network Connection Settings → Other Networks, which must include Ethernet.

Question: In Windows, some wireless devices (WLAN dongle or, for example, Microsoft Wireless Set 3000/5000) which are connected to the adapter stop working or disconnects irregularly. Where is the problem?
Answer: Sometimes the USB 3.0 ports interfere with 2.4 GHz wireless devices. The wireless device should be located outside the immediate distance of USB 3.0 ports and cables. Therefore, try to move the wireless device away from USB 3.0 ports and cables. For example, you can use an extension cable to connect the WLAN dongle or set.
Question: There are LAN failures in macOS.
Answer: The drivers are automatically installed from the system. However, sometimes the automatic installation may not take place correctly. In this case, please install the drivers which are available for download on our website under the “Download” tab for this product. Notice: Install the drivers only in case of trouble!
Question: There is no working LAN connection on my Android.
Answer: The Ethernet connection must be supported directly by the tablet manufacturer. You can easily verify the support in the set-up “Network Connections” – “Other Networks” – and the option “Ethernet” must be located here.
Question: Everything works fine, but it only shows the speed of 10 Mbps. Where is the problem?
Answer: Verify all the cabling between the PC/laptop and the active element and push the RJ-45 connectors. Sometimes can also help replacing the Ethernet cable between the adapter and the active network element (hub, switch, router) with a certified one. A solution can also be setting a specific value (instead of Auto Negotiation) in the properties of the network adapters, Speed & Duplex option.
