  1. Just a heads up for people that use the LG built-in video player with DLNA servers. I find these servers play much more nicely with the TV after switching off "quick start+" in the General settings menu. With quick start off, all DLNA servers show up pretty much all of the time.
  2. I also at first bought that TP-link adapter (see post above), thinking it has the same chipset. The TP-link did not work for me either on an LG OLED65C7V. Only then I found the Cable Matters is actually easy to order in Europe though Amazon, so I sent back the TP-link and got the Cable Matters. The Cable Matters does work! It actually may not not be so strange at all one works and the other doesn't: Just because there is support at hardware level does not mean there is automatically support at software/driver level. These days, devices often have their drivers baked into some memory chip inside the device. Hence TP Link may not simply have included driver support for the WEBOS operating system, while Cable Matters took a bit of extra effort to include an appropriate driver
  3. Haha, that's actually really funny: A user named "science-is truth", disregarding all empirical evidence from multiple users. I read theoretical assumptions and an inappropriate analogy in the above text, all while without adding any new, real data. So useless! TVs are not PCs...Also phones are not PCs. Does that mean neither phones or TVs do not function as a combination of CPU and GPU and maybe other systems on a chip that need an OS (WebOS? Android? IOS ?) to connect everything up through driver support? Are you aware that many devices actually have built in drivers these days, so no separate software driver need to be installed? In any case, and contrary to before, I get rates of around 170 mbit/s and completely smooth playback of all bitrate movies through the Cable Matters adapter. All this while wifi and built in ethernet are completely disconnected. So the adapter is definitely working, and also definitely exceeding the built in ethernet limits.
  4. yes, I now too can confirm that also the black Cable Matters adapters work as described above. Seems in Europe only the black version is being sold at the moment. I ordered mine from German Amazon https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=pe_3044161_189395811_TE_SCE_dp_1
  5. I think I have been able to find the exact same black version on German Amazon as well and have ordered it. Should be able to test by the end of the week. Will post the results here. Fingers crossed!
  6. Being in Europe, I tried another adapter to connect gigabit ethernet to my LG 65OLEDC7V. The device I used was a TP-link UE300(UN). https://www.tp-link.com/nl/home-networking/computer-accessory/ue300/#specifications The adapter has the same chipset as mentioned by @lguser, namely the Realtek/RTL8153. Unfortunately I can not get the TP-LINK to work, not in the USB 1 port (USB 3.0 ) neither in the 2 or 3 ports (USB 2.0). From your replies @lguser, it is not entirely clear to me whether you got the Cable Matters adapter to work yourself, in your own setup, or whether you are just giving advice in case someone gets one? @KM Lee, which version of WebOS are you using?
