Consider the following scenario. You are using a single USB to Ethernet Adapter to image multiple devices via a ConfigMgr OSD Task Sequence. The USB to Ethernet Adapter is used because the devices lack a built in Ethernet port and ConfigMgr OSD does not support imaging the devices using the built in wireless NIC. As an example we are going to image several Surface Pro 3 devices using the same USB to Ethernet Adapter and started via PXE. This is a common scenario for companies running a dedicated imaging location for new devices before handing them over to their end users. Please note that this scenario could use a device similar to a USB to Ethernet adapter that provides a wired Ethernet connection such as a Surface Pro 3 Docking Station
