[solved] adding wired ethernet to LG GPad III 8.0 tablet

Because of reasons, I need to access the internet using a wired Ethernet connection.  I've seen articles that tell us that Android Marshmallow and higher can support wired Ethernet.

My tablet is the LG GPad III 8.0 tablet, and it definitely does have a qualifying OS.

Could it in fact work for me on this tablet?  (Has anyone already done this either successfully or unsuccessfully?)  If it can't be done with this tablet, is there a driver or something that I can install to make it work?

I would rather not have to abandon my LG Tablet for another brand.

    I wasn't able to get an in depth explanation, but the configuration of the port would be what keeps the signal from passing.

    JugglingReferee, please provide the full model number for the tablet. To clarify, are you wanting to tether to the tablet of from the tablet?

    Ooops, I forgot:   I want to tether *to* the tablet.

    I would run a network cable from my switch to the RJ45 end of a RJ45-to-USB adapter.  Then, a USB cable from the USB end of the adapter into the on-the-go USB port (located on the top edge of the tablet).

    The tablet would then have network access from this wired ethernet connection.

    Had it reviewed, it would not work.

    Ok thanks.  Can you tell me the reason?  If I know the reason, perhaps there is a work-around that I can attempt.
