Cool USB Ethernet Adapter - 06-20-2011, 10:44 PM

Has anyone used a USB Ethernet Adapter to connect to the internet with the Duo?

I'm looking to buy a small computer for an upcoming trip but the hotel I'm staying at only has wired connection in the room and since the Inspiron Duo has no ethernet port, I was wondering if the USB Ethernet adapter would work.

Btw, I don't want to buy the docking station.

To be honest there is no reason why it wouldn't work splendidly.

Walmart (US) has a TRENDnet for $18 and D-Link for $20. Either ships for $2.00 or free ship to store.
