      Sky Broadband - No Ethernet Port on Computer

      Hi all,
      New to this site and was hoping somebody could help me.
      Signed up for Sky Broadband, got all my kit, notified from Sky that I can now access broadband but when I went to set it all up last night my Dell computer does not have an Ethernet port to connect the router to! My own fault, I should of checked. Is there a way around this? Can I get an adaptor from anywhere that would enable me to connect my Ethernet wire to my computer? I've seen USB adpators that would take an Ethernet wire but not sure if the Sky BB package would accept this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks all.
      Lee

      Yes they will work perfectly. I had a set up like this a good few years ago now as my old laptop never had a ethernet port either.

      You would be better off getting a network card than using a USB adpator
