If you have an issue with step above you may need to disable driver signature in Windows:

Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press the letter C to open the Charm menu, then click the gear icon (Settings).

  • Click More PC Settings.

  • Click General

  • Under Advanced Startup, click Restart Now

  • After restarting, click Troubleshoot

  • Click Restart

After restarting your computer a second time, choose Disable driver signature enforcement from the list by typing the number 7 on your keyboard.

After restarting, you will be able to install the Arduino drivers normally.

Now you can see correctly recognised device in a device tree menu:

To confirm this you may open terminal and type ipconfig:

You will be able to locate the new Ethernet adapter with an assigned IP address in the range of 192.168.168.X.

Now you can use ground module via USB the same as as it can be used with a native Ethernet based connection.
