I want to connect my Samsung S3/S4 to the internet using an Ethernet cable and USB network adapter. Is this possible?

I have tried a couple different adapters, which don't work, and leads me to wonder if A. there is an adapter that works; B. If there is any software/drivers that I need; C. is there a way to do this with code?

I have gotten this to work a Nexus Tablet. I'm wondering why it works on the tablet, but not on a device.

I want to do this because I have some code that needs to be tested, and I'm looking for a way to ensure that I ALWAYS have an Internet connection. The wireless connections tend to be flaky on my network.

Any insight would be helpful.

    If your device is rooted, you might want to take a look into reverse tethering. – Izzy Jun 11 '13 at 19:30

    It's not. I'm trying to avoid rooting if possible. – Blaine Anderson Jun 11 '13 at 20:19
