Anyone know if there are adapters to turn a u.fl or u.fl->sma into ethernet?

I would like to hardwire something that only has a wifi card with one u.fl connector in it

Thanks

You can't go from wireless to wired. It's not even apples to oranges but more like apples to radiators. You'll have to give up that avenue. The best that you could do is set up a AP via ethernet near your wireless device. That would convert 802.11(wireless) to 802.3(wired). You could also go with a wireless repeater too if distance is your issue.

A bit more detail on the device and the issue to overcome would allow us to provide solutions that could work for you. Unfortunately a dongle or wire adaptor from 802.11 to 802.3 does not exist nor can it.

So no USB available? What kind of device is it? Something with mini pci/pcie, where you can swap the wireless card out for ethernet adapter?

Thanks for the responses, it is a dart board

It has a mini usb but that is just for power

The wifi is integrated into the chip and is the weakest link in getting a stable connection so I am trying to figure out how to hardwire
