    I buy a usb to LAN adapter .
    I connect my tablet to lan plug in my router through the usb to LAN adapter.
    It does not work.
    the same usb to LAN adapter works great in my friend house with his tablet.
    My router has 4 lan plugs. 1 is used for my PC.
    I enable the internet option in mt tablet but still...

    thank you

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Not all LAN adapters are compatible with all the various tablets available. You will need to find one that is compatible with your tablet.

    Most of the ones I have seen that work are intended for Apple devices. Does it seem to recognize that the adapter is even plugged in?

    Unfortunately none that I am aware of. Does your WiFi not work?
