A similar question with discussions was recently in this forum. You should search this discussion forum for the information. As well, you could do a Google & YouTube Search.

 

I doubt that the hardware brand of the adapter matters as much vs. your version of Android OS & the use of a 3rd party file manager app that can recognize the adapter. Again, Google is your best bet for more info. But you would also be better off asking the adapter / cable Mfg for support about their own adapter / cable as they are the ones that claim it will work, so they should be providing the evidence & the how that it does.

Hello.

 

It's been a couple of years since your last reply, can you tell me if my Tab 4 8 Plus is compatible with a USB C to ethernet adapter now? 

 

Thank you.

Hello @robdina!

 

Nice to have you here at the Community Forums!

 

Upon checking through the Tab 4 8 Plus's specifications, its Type-C USB connector can be only use still for power charge/charging and data transfer purposes, making the USB-C to Ethernet adapter not to work on it.

 

You may check the device's complete specifications through this link.

Thank you so much for your reply. 

FYI, I got this phone from Hong Kong and I know the specs are different between North America and Asia. I have 4GB Ram 64GB memory.  Is your initial answer still applicable?  

As well, considering Samsung and other androids have had this capability for years, its odd that a device of Lenovo's calibre would be inferior?  Can this be corrected in an update?

Thank you again for your time.

Thanks for responding @robdina!

 

Yes, the Tab 4 8 Plus's USB Type-C port is designed only for data transferring/managing and for charging purposes as based on its product specifications.

This port won't be upgraded/updated to detect USB-C to Ethernet ports since it uses a materials and supports a different coding or firmware as well.

 

Hope this helps you out.
