Hi All

 

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 530S running linux Mint if I purchase a "USB to RJ45" connector do I need software to run it or will it plug and play?

Thanks wosco

Hi wosco! 

 

Welcome to the Lenovo forum discussion. 

 

As we were checking here, there is no available driver for the USB to RJ45 for the Linux OS in the Lenovo support https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/500-series/530s-15ikb/downloads?CID... that you can download. The downloadable drivers that we have available from the Lenovo Support website is only designed for a Windows 10 OS. 

 

Regards,

If you use the Lenovo and posible other USB-C to RJ45 ethernet dongles it should work straight out of the box drivers are already in the kernel
