My wife has Samsung N130 and I want to connect it to the network but it does not have the right connections on it to fit the normal USB lead ie a LAN Port I think that is what it is called.Can I use a USB to USB lead

No. You need either an LAN socket, RJ-45 (Ethernet) or installed WiFi. The Lan socket is not a USB socket, they are entirely different things.

According to the specs of the N130 it has an RJ-45 LAN port built in. nIt is the squarich socket on one side with a small additional square cut out at the top edge

Just should add that it may be possible to use a USB socket but you would need an adaptor.

click here actually sure if this would do what you want as this seems to need a USB connection as the source and if I understand you correctly you want the Ethernet to be the source. You would need to ask the question of any potential supplier.

Why not connect via WiFi?

Hi Lotvic I just clicked on the WI-FI icon and selected my network and all up and running now.
