At this point, if you read the title of this article, you are probably be thinking “what?”. We all know and love the ability of our devices to be able to connect to the net regardless of where we are thanks to the power of Wifi and 3G/4G. However, when you are comfortably sitting at home or at the office and you have a router close by, why do you have to suffer from a slow (when compared to wired) internet connection? As you probably know, the latter devices such as tabs and certain Android phones come with USB host support, which allow you to attach a wide variety of devices to your gadget such as mice, keyboards, hard drives, etc. To take this one step further, XDA member Quiethinker posted a driver pack for Honeycomb 3.2 in the Transformer section that basically enables Ethernet through USB capabilities on Asus’ tab. Just think about the possibilities of what you can do with a more stable and faster connection on your favorite device. Streaming content and never buffering because your signal is too low, playing online games with friends with virtually 0 lag when compared to them, and so much more.
One final note, the dev has posted a small list with “approved” Ethernet dongles that work with this pack. Please give this pack a shot and leave some feedback. Also, if you happen to test a different adapter from those listed, please leave the model behind so that the OP can update his list.
The attached package contains USB to Ethernet driver pack for Honeycomb v3.2
