Going to test some USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/27

Later on, I might add a USB31000S in the mix, but I will do some initial testing with USB 3 gigabit ethernet adapters based on Realtek RTL8153 and Asix AX88179 chips.

Things I will focus on with my Retina MacBook Pro 2015 model are:

  • CPU usage
  • Throughput
  • Duration between reconnect on USB after suspend, and renewing the DHCP lease
  • Promiscuous mode capabilities

Some links for my references:

A first impression from the above links is that for Realtek chipset based devices, drivers are more readily included in operating systems, and these chipsets are better at VLAN handling.

USB Typewriter — Classic Typewriters for the Digital Age (for mechanical typewriters, not electrical ones)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/19

Nicely done: the USB Typewriter — Classic Typewriters for the Digital Age, as they can do almost all keys a PC keyboard can do see the USB Typewriter — FAQ using a mechanical (not electrical!) typewriter.

Basically the opposite of  the IBM Selectric Computer Terminal, the Daisy wheel printing, the IBM 1050 systemand the IBM 2741 Console.

Note the kits (there are both soldering and non-soldering versions) are mostly aimed at models that once were popular in the USA, so for manufacturers like Adler there are no guidelines (but the existing guidelines for soldering and for non-soldering probably work fine).
