Quick question about usb gigabit Ethernet adapters

  • I want to use my old unused htpc as nas/media server for my s905 & s912 boxes overn LAN.

    Unfortunately my mobo is old and doesnt seem to support WOL. It does however resume from USB (mouse, keyboard or ir receiver).

    With this in mind, if I purchased a USB lan adapter for htpc, will I be able to use resume then (ie wake up PC as WOL)?

    No. The USB network adapter is not a keyboard.

    Hi Normy,


    Just to let you know of a problem I had with Mecool M8S pro ethernet port:

    Surprisingly it wouldn't work when I plugged it into some of my routers. But it would work with others.

    You said "ethernet at the back does not work anymore", try to plug into other routers or hubs, it might solve your problem. Actually what I did is I put a hub next to the MeCool, between the router and the mecool, and that worked.

    I just purchased this one, it works fine but I had to set the Kodi firewall to „OFF“ to access the box from the LAN (PC via SSH or Samba, Kodi iOS-remote). Is this always the case?
