My work has same requirement. I use this a NETGEAR WiFi Range Extender EX2700

The extender connects to my phone then I plug the laptop into the extender. So yeah, stupid, but it works. Meets the requirement of hardwired to the laptop.

Sort of a silly requirement if you ask me. I work remote for a large financial institution and deal with OFAC and SDN data - along with millions of customer's PII and a wireless connection on a secure VPN is fine. Hardwiring into a wifi router is still sending information over the air isn't it? At some point no matter how you connect there's a good chance it's over air anyway. Maybe I am missing something.

Exactly - what they need is a VPN, not how the computer is connected to the internet. I would ask your IT department about that. I have both wired and wireless in my house, it all goes to the same router in my house. No difference in the connection or speed. There issue might be speed - 1Mbps service is not the same as 10 or 20, etc.

I've been using this MoFi 4G LTE router for many years now. Never had an issue with it running 24/7. It uses a 4G data micro SIM card provided by your network provider. You have 4-Ethernet ports available, though can add more routers/switches as needed?

I keep my PC/notebooks and smart TV connected via Ethernet, and use WiFi for tablets/smartphones. I also prefer Ethernet as the signal is more consistent, and not subject to additional radio interference associated with WiFi.

I am wondering How they know you are using a Direct Ethernet cable and not a wi-fi or cell connection.. (yes it is possible to do it but I wonder)

Is it just that the hardware is provided by work and does not have Wi-Fi. If so man do I have answers (Ubiquity nano station) Some of those are downright impressive.

If they are doing a trace route to see if it's going via a wi-fi router or cell tower... Well Can't help you there.


Home is where I park it.

Hmmmm ... we have three adults getting their Internet service via WiFi from the router I installed. One works from home, and the other two stream a lot ... often at 4K resolution.

HOWEVER the router is fed via cable delivering the Internet to it at 110 - 115 Mbps speeds, and I set up the two folks who stream alot on the 5 MHz band coming out of the router and I set up the one who works from home on their own separate 2.4 MHz band coming out of the router.

We experience NO buffering ever at that incoming bandwiidth to the router and using split bands out of the router. All three clients are set up with maximum security protocols and are protected with top notch access and browser security setups.

I guess I don't understand why or how hard-wired Ethernet could improve on this. [emoticon]

Thanks to CV19, I'm mostly working from home. Had to go into the office today, and I realized it's been several months since I backed up my computer... gotta love a corporate hardwire to transfer A LOT OF DATA [emoticon]

Everything in my house except my desktop is wifi, and quite frankly it could be too. It's predecessor was hardwire only.

I just did this with a iPhone se on visible.com phone on Verizon. You can get the monthly down to $25 with a little research. And a gli.net gl-ar750s router, it has ac WiFi and several rj45 ports and lots of options
