I want to upgrade from 1Gbit/s Ethernet to 2,5Gbit/s and would not want to waste my only available PCIe slot on an internal network card. I just found this dongle: "DIGITUS USB Type-C™ Gigabit Ethernet Adapter 2.5G (Chipset: RTL8156)" but discovered here

that there seem to be problems with the driver for that specific chipset. Are there any 2,5Gbit/s USB (Type A or C doesnt matter to me) dongles out there that are proven to work with unRaid that you could suggest to me?

I'm interested in this too. I'm getting conflicting info from customer reviews saying that they've used this on their Unraid machine, but nothing certain.

Has anyone actually tried this? I want to get it for my motherboard's thunderbolt port, and I know it's backwards compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 1 devices like this dongle.
