My work issued a Surface Pro for me to use a while ago and I've been using it OK on the WiFi at home with a few other dongles along the way to get the job done, but I think I'd get better performance with network activities if I used it over Ethernet instead.
The Surface only has a single USB port for this, so I'll need an adaptor (which is readily available).
My concern with doing that though is it may require software or drivers to be installed.
I have an admin account so I can install drivers and software on this PC, but policies say I can't and I'm not about to be playing with that.
If it does require drivers I can't use it, and I don't want to bother with doing a return if I can hopefully find out an answer in advance.
So question: Does anyone know if this adaptor will work with a Surface Pro 5 running Windows 10 without the need for additional installs, including through Windows update? As it's a corporate device we manage it centrally, so Windows automatic updates are disabled.
Thanks in advance!
Note: In the Microsoft Windows forum because it's more about the OS and software so don't think it would suit being in networking or tablets. Feel free to move if need be.
