I just found out that the Cable Matters SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter (Asix AX88179) works well with the Pixel. There are still places where ethernet but no wifi is available so this is definitely a nice bonus feature. The pixel even shows an ethernet symbol when connected.
I have to use a USB C to USB A adapter (the usb 2.0 adapter that came with the pixel works, but I use a usb 3.0 adapter for more performance) to connect the adapter. The adapter drains the battery of the pixel and blocks charging port but at least it works. Ideal would be a usb-c hub/dock with built in ethernet and usb-c charge through. Anyone found something like this?
I've been playing with using the OTG adapter to hook up all sorts of things to my new Pixel and wanted to mess with an Ethernet adapter, so decided to grab the one mentioned in your post as well as one other. Here are my findings.
I found the identically described adapter on Amazon here. The part number on the package was 202013-BLK. It did not register on my Pixel at all. The Ethernet adapter did power up and the network status lights came on, but I never got any sort of indicator on the phone showing the phone recognized or used it.
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0Of course replace the IP and network mask with your IP and network mask.
ifconfig eth0I tested it on my Pixel with a USB Ethernet adapter attached and it worked fine.
Thanks for your post mrowwy. I figured if one adapter with the RTL8153 chipset didn't work, none of them would. Guess that's not right (based on your post above). Given that information I updated my previous post to include more detail about what has and has not worked. I'm ordering the Linksys USB3GIG (Amazon just lists it as USB3GIG, not USB3GIGV1 - hopefully they are the same thing).
