Those of you who own the official Intel Compute Stick know that the wireless antenna built in is horrible. If you are looking for a gigabit ethernet adapter for your compute stick, I have another option for you. The Woopower 3 Port USB 3.0 hub & Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is the perfect accessory for your compute stick.
Not only does it provide high speed access through a cat5 or cat6 ethernet cable, but you also get 3 USB 3.0 ports. This is great since most of the compute sticks only have 1 USB port, you now have a better wired connection to the internet and have 2 more USB ports that can be used for devices like a keyboard, mouse, external hard drive, or other USB accessories that you may need.
When I plugged it in to my compute stick it instantly recognized all of my attached devices. Some of the more powerful USB items may need more power and you will have to plug in a power adapter which is not included.
I really like the design and it is very well built. It is small enough to travel with if you need and is a great alternative to the Cable Matter USB to Ethernet adapter that I wrote about in my Top accessories for the compute stick. This one gives you extra USB ports which may be beneficial to a lot of people.
