  vectradam 13:43 29 Dec 2008

i need to connect 02 broadband to a pc that does not have an ethernet port. im aware of USB wireless adapters but really want to hardwire the internet connection. is there such a thing as a usb to ethernet adaptor ? or any other ideas

There are USB Ethernet adaptors and I used to use one on an old PC without an ethernet port. The alternative is to install a PCI card with a port.

A quick trawl on the internet will turn up adaptors.

i was looking in device manager and found that there was a working network adapter. on further investigation i removed a plate above the usb ports and found an ethernet port

many thanks for your help

Fit an ethernet card and then hide the port?

Funny old decision by the manufacturer! What make is the computer?
