IOGEAR's GigaLinq Pro 3.1, USB Type-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, allows you to connect a standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable to deliver Internet and network access at up to Gigabit speeds (1000Mbps). Connect the GigaLinq Pro 3.1 to your laptop's Type-C port, connect an Ethernet cable from your network router or hub to the adapter and you're ready to access the Internet at blazing fast speeds. If the Wi-Fi service is poor or only a wired connection is available, connect to a high speed wired connection with the GigaLinq Pro 3.1. The adapter is portable and features built in over-current protection to protect your device from power surges. Now lack of Wi-Fi no longer means lack of Internet access.
