Connecting a Profishark

USB 3.0 is mandatory to connect Profishark 10G and 10G+ to the host computer (Windows/Linux/MacOS/Synology).

Profishark 100M, 1G and 1G+ support USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections.

Due to the USB3.0 restriction, the maximum bandwidth usage which can be transmitted without packet drops is around 3Gbps.

We strongly advise connecting the ProfiShark device to a native USB3.0 port on the host machine. Using a USB hub may lead to hardware dropped packets.
