Reading the SharkTapUSB 10/100/1G Quick Start Guide, it appears that, if you plug the SharkTap into a computer's USB port, it will appear as a (USB-attached) Ethernet adapter if your operating system has a driver that supports the ASIX AX88179 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter chip they use, so you would just capture on that Ethernet adapter. No separate "USB converter" is required. They also indicate that both Windows and "recent Linux distributions" have drivers for that adapter chip.
