맥북에서 thunderbolt ethernet 윈도우에서 쓰기

맥북에 윈도우를 bootcamp로 설치해서 쓰는중, 랜선을 연결한 인터넷을 쓰게 되었다. 케이블을 꽂자마자 인식이 안되어 윈도우 10에서 드라이버를 따로 설치해야 하는 줄 알고 검색을 해보았다.

위 링크를 보면 답변에 브로드컴 이터넷드라이버를 추가 설치하라고 하여 다운받아 보았는데, 재부팅을 하자마자 드라이버가 싱겁게 인식되어 버렸다. 애초에 드라이버는 필요없고 재부팅을 하면 되는 일이었다니.. 아무튼 다음에 또 이런 문제가 생길 수 있어 포스트를 남겨놓는다.

This is for Windows 7, but should work for Windows 10

A quick search on the Apple Support site, I was able to find instructions on downloading the correct driver. I have condensed them here for quick reference:


  1. Download the Netxtreme Mobile/Desktop DriverIt will say that it’s not supported, but the .inf file does include the requisite driver entries
  2. Unzip the drivers to a temporary folder on your hard drive (preferably your Desktop so it’s easy to find)
  3. Connect the adaptor to the thunderbolt port
  4. Reboot Windows

Windows should automatically detect the adaptor now and install it. You may need to point the installer at the location where you unzipped the drivers.

If that doesn’t work, you will need to do this through Device Manager

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware & Sound and open Device Manager
  2. Click the name of your computer at the top of the device tree
  3. Click Action at the top of the window and choose Add Legacy Hardware
  4. Click Next
  5. Select “Install hardware that I manually select…”
  6. Choose Network Adaptors
  7. Choose “Have Disk”
  8. Browse to the location of the drivers you unzipped earlier.
  9. Click the .inf file
  10. Select Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet from the list of drivers available
  11. OK and install

You may need to reboot again with the adaptor plugged into the Thunderbolt port to finish the job

Note: Again, these instructions and driver downloads are for Windows 7. Thought they should work with Windows 10, it is not guaranteed.

If having both OS X and Windows 10 support is important, consider getting a USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. I have personnaly used this exact adapter on an iMac, a MacBook Pro, a Mac Mini (Dual Boot w/ Win 7) and a Surface Pro 3.

    also it’s possible (tested here) to do a direct thunderboltthunderbolt connection between 2 computers at 10Gbps with a Thunderbolt 1 cable. In theory you can do the same thing at 40Gbps on a TB3 cable but I haven’t tried it.
