    BobjGear Ethernet Adapter for Nexus 7

    For anyone that wants the option to connect their Nexus 7 by Ethernet instead of wi-fi, for example when traveling, sometimes hotels provide free wired internet but charge daily for wireless....

    Or those of you that have a wired connection at work but no wifi connection ....

    My USB-to RJ45 Ethernet Adapter works with the Nexus 7, With the addition of an OTG cable - Micro-USB to Full sized female USB.

    You do not have to be Rooted on the Nexus 7.

    Just turn off Wi-Fi in Android settings, attach the adapter, start the browser, and you are connected.

    The Nexus 7 (Jellybean) does not give you any indication of having established the Ethernet connection in the notification bar. The only way you know it is working is to use your browser.

    The router at the other end of the ethernet wire must be assigning IP addresses. For other Tablets, such as Toshiba Excite and ASUS Transformers, Android also displays a menu for Ethernet, to set you own IP. This is not the case with Nexus 7 tablet and Jellybean, however.

    My adapter is available on Link: BobjGear's Store on Amazon

    Regards,
    Bobj

    Will this charge my Nexus 7 as well? Or is it purely for network access?

    I have one and it's awesome. My internet speed is always 100Mbps when connected.

    On the N7 I see ETHERNET when connected by your adapter at the bottom of the pulldown list on the home page.

    That's probably what you should be seeing.

    Because of the crippling enterprise wifi bug in jellybean right now, looking into wired ethernet adapters. My question: can yo plug this into a powered USB hub, then plug the hub into the n7 itself, to provide both power and ethernet?

    If you want to power this adapter instead of letting the N7 provide the power, then the answer is "yes".

    If you want to charge the Nexus7 while using this adapter, then the answer is "no".

    What do you mean by "crippling enterprise wifi bug"? I've never heard of such a thing.

    BobjGear adapter works nice - out of the box !! I wish it had some led indication about activity/connection...
    anyway next step is to find a tethering app for sharing LAN connection via wifi... is there such ?
