Where do I begin?Bizarre design choices such as using a micro USB cable and camera connections instead of regular old network cables and RJ45 ports, and deceptive marketing which then calls this a “network cable” which it is anything but!I have never ever seen a “network cable” that has one RJ 45 end and a USB connector at the other end.
