Will a OTG adapter (the one with a micro-b male on one end and USB 'standard' female port on the other end) connected to a Ethernet to usb ('standard' USB male one end, female/male Ethernet end on the other) work to connect an Android device to a network, providing of course proper sofware support on the devices side? My guess is yes, but I though maybe their is something special about Micro-b to ethernet adpaters

  • See: android.stackexchange.com/questions/53443/… TL;DR: It depends on the phone. – Morrison Chang Sep 22 '17 at 5:07
  • "providing of course proper sofware support on the devices side" - this is where the problem is at, as the OS doesn't include drivers for every possible adapter chipset out there. – Andy Yan Sep 22 '17 at 5:36
