I just realized that my laptop doesn't have an ethernet port - my bad for not realizing this before purchasing. Is there a way to add it, or to use an adapter? I'm not sure if one of the other ports would work with the appropriate adapter, cause I don't know where the network card is connected. Anyone have any suggestions?

Many machines now do not have NIC port, specially on thin machines. I'm using a USB 3 NIC hub

And I've got 2 more USB-3 ports. There are many similar with more ports around

 

Regards.

Thank you for your input. So the USB port connects to the network card?
