    USB to Ethernet internet connection?

    I was wondering if it is possible to connect to the internet using a usb-to-ethernet adapter. The school where I work has Ethernet, but no wifi.
    Thanks

    You can buy a portable wifi for under 20 bucks.
    Why would you want a cord hanging from your tablet?

    Got the USB to ethernet connector - nope, didn't work. It comes with cd rom with install instructions etc - android OS not one of the supported OS's. Gonna send it back and look some more!

    Do you have 3.2 upgrade yet? Might be worth waiting.
    Remind me again why you want this?

    Just upgraded right now - worked fine. Here's the deal with ethernet - on vacation we stay in a few resorts where wi-fi sucks and the ethernet connection is much more reliable. I want the option of the hard wired connection for the tab. We got the tab so we wouldn't have to drag the laptop on vacation...

    Ah, I see.
    We just spent the whole $25 bucks for a small portable wifi router. Keeps our phones, tablets and nooks happy in hotels.

    Icebike, can you elaborate on this device for an ignoramus like me? Am I right to think you plug this into an ethernet connection and it creates a wireless network from the ethernet network? It doesn't need a phone line? Does it plug in or run off batteries?
    Thanks!
