The light and portable QNAP QNA-UC5G1T USB 3.0 to 5GbE adapter provides the ability to add an extra network port to your computer or QNAP NAS. Supporting 5GbE/ 2.5GbE/ 1GbE/ 100MbE connections, the QNA-UC5G1T is especially useful for laptops that lack native Ethernet connectivity.
Add a 5GbE Ethernet port to your laptop
To make thinner and lighter laptops, some manufacturers tend to omit Ethernet ports. With the QNA-UC5G1T you can upgrade your laptop to support 5GbE RJ45 Ethernet connectivity and take advantage of high-speed network connections.
Please note: To ensure optimal performance, it is recommended to set the Jumbo Frames on all the devices in your local network environment to MTU 9000.
Add extra Ethernet ports to your NAS
The QNA-UC5G1T provides a quick and easy way to expand the network connectivity of your QNAP NAS. You can connect multiple QNA-UC5G1T adapters to your NAS and manage them alongside other network ports in the Network & Virtual Switch app.
1. Requires a QNAP NAS with QTS 4.3.6 (or later).
