Okay Let me answer thi for you the plugin is its for an ethernet/phone cable so you plug it into the guitar and into the side of you pc or laptop then it makes it compatible with the pc version of the game instead of playing with the keyboard also if you own guitar hero 3 xbox 360 disc then you can put it in your computer and it allows you to play it on your computer

I made this account just to reply to this wild ass guess of a comment from 4 years ago

1.) Ethernet and phone cable are different shapes and have a different number of pins
2.) This is a phone jack
3.) there was no 'PC' version of the game 4 years ago and there has never been an official GH pc game (there was Frets on Fire but it did not use this connection because its nowhere on any PC)
4.) This cable couldn't even fit into your PC or Xbox so I have no idea where you came up with this
5.) The port is for a pedal that was never implemented

If you ever see this, be sure to reply with why you had the audacity to make such a blatantly false claim so confidently.

Ok first off I don’t know how long you’ve have been in the gh community but obviously not long enough

But yes there most definitely was a port of guitar hero 3 on pc there was also ports of Wold tour and Aerosmith

Also the pc port of gh3 was probably the most played one because people were able to make custom songs and implement them into gh3 pc just as you would in clone hero

And here is a picture of the box for the port of gh3 on pc

If that's the case, then which type of ethernet cable do you use? All the cables I have don't fit into the controller.

It isn't and Ethernet port, its a Phone Jack... and honestly i think the whole pedal thing would be cool but i don't think it would be extremely successful.

it's actually an RJ11 or RJxx phone jack. well at least the red octane version I have in front of me is. You can tell this because Ethernet has at least 8 pins usually. And phone jacks usually have a max of 4 pins. Now as to what it actually does I have no idea. Looking into that now. glad to have found this thread thanks.

Was originally for an expansion pedal. no-one ever designed one though, and I'm pretty sure it has been dropped from recent models.
