Yes I have used a Compute Stick with a USB ethernet adapter. I am using a D-Link (DUB-1312). Do take note that you will have to install the driver and when you are running the Compute Stick, use the original power adapter with the original usb power cable. I was using a usb extension cable with the original usb power cable and the Compute Stick will shutdown randomly shortly after it boots up. But once I remove the extension cable, using only the original usb power cable, the problem goes away.
Thanks very much for the info; that's very helpful. Any issues with heating, latency, bandwidth, etc?
So far, I don't have any issue with heat as I am only running a dashboard showing some statistics. Again, due to my usage, performance seems ok. I have not run any benchmarking tools on it, so the feedback is very much based on my perception.
I use a Plugable USB 2.0 ethernet and it works just fine. I'm running Windows 10 and did not need to load any drivers to make it work I have it plugged into a powered usb hub. I have not run any performance tools on it either, but it seems to work just fine as is.
Thanks Chilinski, that's good info..

We are glad to hear Choong's answer helped you.
Please take into consideration the Intel® Compute Stick is powered through a 5V DC connector on the side. The maximum current rating is 2A.
Note:The supplied power adapter and cable are required to power the Intel Compute Stick. Powering the Intel Compute Stick via any other power source is not supported.
I'm running the ICS w\Win10 and the Anker 4 port hub w\ethernet. No external power supply to the hub. Just the ICS power supply. Have it using wired LAN and Logitech K400 wireless KB+trackpad. I've hooked up USB thumbdrives. No issues whatsoever.
