    With some duct tape! Hahaha!

    Get a USB to Ethernet LAN adapter. What happens next, I leave it to you.

    What phone do you have? I have a Galaxy Note 8 and I was able to plug in a USB-C dock that had multiple USB ports as well as an Ethernet port and it worked fine on Ethernet. I'm not sure if other Android phones support (though with the open nature of Android I assume they would).

    • @Markus Imhof I also was skeptical about it. I tried this about a year ago at work. I had a spare USB-C connector and I thought I'd try it. I was amazed that it worked.
