Suggestion for Laptops with No Ethernet Port
« on: February 12, 2022, 05:26:28 pm »
Hi

I got this question today on my email.
- What is suggested today for ArcaOS (OS/2 Warp 4.52) for Laptops that does not came with an Ethernet Port? How Can I connect to the Network?

Currently I limit myself for ArcaOS on real hardware with a Thinkpad laptop with an actual working Ethernet port, but to be honest never thought what we have available today to try to solve this issue.

Any suggestions?

Regards

Hi,

one can use an USB-2-Ethernet converter. I have done so in the past with my TP X200 and TP X250 in the beginning before I was able to patch existing drivers, respectively before Arca Noae came up with Ethernet drivers for these models.
