  • Nope. You can opt for the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter though if you wanted to connect your Mac to your modem and have a fast and superb connection. But bear in mind that the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter is only compatible with MacBook Pro with Retina Display and MacBook Air that comes with a Thunderbolt port.
