Cheap tablet with Ethernet for tuning

Posting here as most relevant to flash tuning...

I'm looking for a cheap Android tablet option that supports with an Ethernet dongle. I've tried my old Nexus 7 and Pixel phone, but to no avail.

Thx!

I gave up. Couldn't find one and was wasting time worried about saving myself 165 seconds. I use the Wi-Fi adapter 95% of time anyways. More convenient.

Just tried the new Fire 7 > connection error and then my Chromebook > connection error
Not sure if that is a software problem or something else as the cable etc worked using a windows laptop for another application
