USB 3.0 Ethernet Adapter

I recently needed a USB Ethernet adapter as most laptops today do not have an ethernet jack.  I ordered this one from Amazon as it uses USB 3.0 and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0.  I  was surprised that it came with a manual and a CD with drivers for Windows and Mac OS!  What!?  Someday it would be nice for drivers to come on a USB Stick since most laptops no longer have a CD Drive as well.  When was the last time drivers were not automatically installed for Windows or Mac OS for a device like this?

Price $13.99

One of the features that surprised me was that it supports Wake-on-LAN.
