when travelling, we frequently arrive in hotels with complementary ethernet access to the internet, but no wifi.

does anyone know of a USB-ethernet adapter which could be used with the iPhone?

failing that, does anyone know of a plug-n-play miniature ethernet-wifi adapter (modem/router/bridge)?

    I'd love to hear if someone produces such a thing as well, but not for the same reason - I'd LOVE to use my iPhone as a network scanner and tool. If I could just plug it in, I could check so many functions of a network without having to lug my notebook into the job.

    This would be even cooler with the new iPad - some really significant tools could be put into play.

    I am with you and that is how I found the topic. I am looking for a plug in RJ45 Ethernet adapter for a Touch to turn it into a network scanner.

    pad would be nice, but the touch is so much smaller. I don't have an iPhone - ATT coverage is just plain awful around here.
