I bought this on ebay, 3m for £1.60 Ordered monday - arrived weds http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/380363012300
OP device has no ethernet socket to accommodate a standard LAN cable, hence the question...

USB2 ethernet devices probably peak at around 200-250Mbits/s transfer rate (where lower case b = bit) and the cheapest are often contained in fixed plastic enclosures which may be detrimental to the client's USB socket if the LAN cable is accidentally moved / tugged (example £3.25 dlvd ex-UK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162019978040). Possibly worth the additional few £s to look at cabled alternatives that would provide a small element of tug protection and are typically USB3 so greater potential transfer speeds (£6.60+ ex-UK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232111725923 or https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01JS7U3GQ/ )
Also note that most suppliers will provide software drivers on disc, and I suspect if your device has no ethernet port then it probably does not have an optical drive to read the disc...

Even my tiny old Asus EEPC has an ethernet port.
