My internet is going to be changing from an Ethernet connection to a wifi only modem, and I do not have any choice of modems. It is the small rectangular ones you use for cellular internet. I still need some Ethernet connections, for my phone and an older computer, and my TiVo. Is there a cheap box that converts from WiFi to Ethernet ports, and not the other way around? The ones I see are the old ones that go from Ethernet to WiFi, I will need the opposite.

Care to explain a little more? Inside the networking settings?

You ask "Is there a cheap box that converts from WiFi to Ethernet ports, and not the other way around?"

 

And I responded "Try looking for a "wifi bridge" with lan ports." https://www.google.c... with lan ports

If you click the link I posted above, it should lead you to a Google search page with a list of many helpful pages such as "Understanding Wireless LAN Bridges", "Everything you need to know about Wireless Bridging ...", "Shop for WiFi bridge with LAN ports" etc.
