Getting an ethernet connection form my Jetpack?

How can I go from my jetpack to an ethernet connection? Is there a USB to Ethernet adaptor that I can pug into the USB access port of the jet pack and then plug in an ethernet only device?

No. Not directly from the Jetpack.  The Jetpack only supports WiFi and USB tethering.

No.  USB Tethering will have to be used if you want a supported hard wire connection to your Jetpack.  USB tethering requires driver support on the connected machines OS.

A work around would be to setup a wireless bridge that can convert the wireless signal from the Jetpack to a normal Ethernet cable.  This is not something supported by Verizon, but is well documented in many other areas.  That being said, I wouldnt advise using a wireless bridge with your Jetpack purely for the purposes of using an Ethernet cable out of convenience.  It would be easier if you were to purchase a USB WiFi Adapter for your connected machine and use teh Jetpacks native WiFi connection than to deal with the performance hits and additional maintenance of a wireless bridge setup.

If you are looking for Ethernet cable connections then a better device would be teh VZW 4G LTE Router.  4G LTE Routers are designed for normal home usage 24/7 connection scenarios that the Jetpacks are not.  4G Routers come with Ethernet cable ports.

I don't have normal internet service where I live (very rural). I use a Jetpack for always on internet. Is there a device that will connect wirelessly to the Jetpack that allows for an ethernet connection to a security device?
