Hello all, I have a laptop that has a laptop ExpressCard port and Ethernet port to access the internet--all other methods (e.g. USB/Wifi) have been disabled for security reasons (I do not have admin rights to the computer). I know that I can go out and buy an ExpressCard and all that comes with that; however, I was hoping I could save myself some trouble and $$$ by simply tethering my Droid RAZR via the Ethernet Port. Please see link below to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
Amazon.com: Micro USB to Ethernet Port Adapter for Tablet 7"/8"/10" inch: Electronics
So, my question is, will the device above work or is there any device out there that will convert the micro USB signal to Ethernet and vice versa. I'm trying to keep the cost below $30 and I'd ideally like something that can be powered by the laptop via the Ethernet cable (if that's even possible) or maybe chargeable so I don't have to look for plug-ins everywhere I go.
The Laptop has Windows XP running on it and I can not install any drivers or software on it. Please let me know if there any clever ideas out there if product above does not work. Thank you.
