Ethernet port is not working

Hi, I need to get information on USB to ethernet adapter. I have a Dell laptop, but now I'm facing the problem with connecting the ethernet cable. I check and found my ethernet port is not working. It would be damaged or something else. My friend suggests me a temporary solution for that. He says USB to Ethernet adapter is another option for you. You can simply plug and use this adapter. So, now one answer I get but, another problem is many brands provides ethernet adapter like Plugable, Amazon Basics, Cable Matters, StarTech, Anker, and many more. So, please suggest me a good one and long-lasting.

Of the brands you've mentioned, Anker would be the one I would trust most. Belking is another brand that makes those adapters, and I also trust theirs. You get what you pay for...

Oops - Belkin, not Belking, of course...

If the port is not working then most likely its a drivr problem - go into device manager and update the driver for the ethernet card.
