Lenovo L2230x Monitor drivers for Mac

At work, I'm connecting my MacBook Air 11" to a Lenovo L2230x Monitor (aka L2230xwA) to extend my display.

Given that the MacBook Air has no Ethernet connector, today I thought I might put the monitor's USB Port Replicator feature to good use.


Long story short, this monitor embeds a USB 2.0 Hub that connects to your laptop through a USB-A to USB-B cable and exposes:

  • 3 downstream USB ports
  • 1 Ethernet 10M/100Mbps port
  • Multimedia ports: audio line-out + microphone-in jack

The 3 USB ports work out of the box, but no luck with the Ethernet port! In the user's manual (pdf), the steps are simple:

  1. Install the USB Port Replicator driver for L2230x Wide [...] 
  2. Connect a standard 10 Mbps / 100 Mbps Ethernet connector to the Ethernet connector on the monitor, and wait until the device is fully configured by the Windows operating system.

So I looked for a driver, but on the Lenovo support page I could only find the USB driver for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.


Where could I find a driver to be able to use the Ethernet port? 

Or did anyone find a workaround to make use of it on a Mac?

What's DOS?

Re: Lenovo L2230x Monitor drivers for Mac

I found that the AOC USB Monitor driver will solve the problem.  Just download and install it and BAM!  the Lenovo works...
