Is there an officially supported USB-to-Ethernet adapter which works with Zipatile? In tech specs there is written that ethernet is supported with optional adapter. My Edimax which works on other tablets is not recognized by Zipatile. What to use?

Tested the official USB-to-Ethernet adapter and it's ok. The one they sent me does not look like the one on the shop page. It is simple noname device but it works.

zipatile should come with ethernet connectivity as an option anyway i think. especially if you intend to use it as a intercom system for whole buildings.

This is exactly where we want to use Zipatile. Wi-Fi network for more than 100 apartments in a six-storey building is not an option. Zipato doesn't sell the optional adapter they are talking about in the specs. I cannot buy all the available adapters on the market just for test.

this i quite annoying because it explicitly states this is included in the box.

Ethernet is supported over USB port to make the device thinner. You just have to have standard adapter from ethernet to micro usb.

Here are two adapter we've tested and were not recognized by Zipatile. Both are working on other tablets we have got here. Both are powered up, have link on Zipataile, but no Ethernet option shows up on the network setting. The Edimax is a 100Mb/USB2 the Promate is 1Gb/USB3. They are not micro USB but we are able to use them with that OTG adapter on other tablets. Am I missing something?c6fa68bc238951247533754b54207f45267e493df331d6d9eb5997c1fbe5711dacbaed5a011bfbf436bdcfd6239621ec

No, the plugin didn't fix it. I'm still waiting for an officially supported adapter to be available as an option from Zipato, as it is written on the box.

Is this still outstanding or did you manage to resolve the issue? I'm curious as soon I might need similar solution.

My Promate USB3-to-Gigabit adapter seems to be using the same Realtek chipset as your Anker. I've successfully installed the Anker Win10 driver for the Promate and is working fine. So, I guess it's the same thing but mine is not recognized by Zipatile. On any other tablet it works. Is there something to do on the Zipatile settings to enable the ethernet support?

I've got answer from Zipato about an officially supported adapter. It is tested and is available on stock now. I'm waiting for a quotation from the sales department.
