tested USB 2 adapter

Tested the new USB ethernet extender. It worked! In the Geoff Brown Observatory, we have a kit but it only operates at USB 1.0. The new IOGEAR USB 2.0 ethernet extender is, obviously, 2.0 compatible.

I did a quick test with the Canon 40D, Backyard EOS, John Repeat Dance, a short networking patch cord, and the new doodads, and everything seemed to work fine, no protesting, no low-speed warnings.

Clay asked about speeds so I looked them up.
  1. 1.5 to 12 Mbps
  2. 480 Mbps
  3. 5000 Mbps
Explained I could not seem to find a USB 3 option but the 2 would be much better than the current! And maybe that's moot anyway since the ethernet will top out at 100 or 1000 Mbps.
