Ethernet connector size is different on laptop

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 7-by1971
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I can connect wirelessly to internet thru my AT&T Router but I wanted to connect to internet thru wired connection. However, the ethernet jack on my computer will not accomodate the ethernet cable from the Router-the jack on the Laptop is wider and thinner than the cable plug I have. Is the jack using a different cable (RJ-45) or iteration of the RJ-45 cable? Is there an adapter I can obtain to allow me to have a wired connection?
