Hello I just bought a Dell XPS 13 DE and need an eth adapter. I read this has linux drivers. Anyone tried this adapter? Thanks, Franco

I do not have the device, however, it uses the driver ax88179_178a which is built in to Ubuntu 13.10 and newer. I suspect it will work out of the box. I know nothing of its quality. –  chili555 Jan 29 '14 at 16:15
Haven't tried that adapter - have had great success with this if you're looking for an alternative (support since linux kernel 2.6) –  jonasl Mar 7 '14 at 11:06
