Trying to figure out how to connect a cat5 cable to my  HP Pavilion gaming laptop. Is there some sort of adaptor and where/how do I connect it? I am trying to increase my upload/download speed. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Many machines now do not have RJ45 port. I'm using the following adapter and I've got 2 more USB 3.0 ports

Should be many around. I also bought an adapter for USB-C version
