So i have this job I'm trying to get online and one of the requirements is to have an Ethernet connection. I have an Ethernet connection but it's with a usb adapter which is prohibited for some reason. Is there any way to trick my computer to think that ethernet port is built into my laptop.

Sorry but we are unable to help with anything that circumvents any such restrictions, no matter the purpose, if we were to help you and you got the job but the computer was subsequently compromised any lawsuit wouldn't just be against you it would be against anyone that had helped you.


Why not just use the Ethernet port on the notebook?

No, but you can purchase a Ethernet adapter to connect to the laptop if it only have Wireless.


Some newer laptops uses a USB-C port for that, for others you need to buy a device with a "normal" USB port.


Post the brand and model of the laptop if you need some help on that.
