Yes, but not directly. Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered device such as Connect 10G is NOT compatible with Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter. As the Connect 10G is bus-powered and Thunderbolt 2 cannot provide this power, we suggest connecting this to an intermediary dual-port Thunderbolt 3 device such as CalDigit TS3 Plus to provide sufficient power and connect the TS3 Plus to your Thunderbolt 2 & 1 computer using an Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter.

You can add this by navigating to System Preferences, selecting network, and pressing the '+' button on the bottom left side of this window. From here, simply click on the Interface options and select 'Thunderbolt Ethernet Slot X' (with X being a number from 1-4) before clicking 'Create'. Once this is created, please be sure to apply these changes and wait up to a minute for this to receive a connection from your Connect 10G.
