We've tested this with a number of network adapters and it works with most of them. This one is verified to work:

Gotchas:

  1. we had trouble with some dongles where the printer would only ever recognize the first dongle plugged into it
  2. you need to restart the printer for it to be found
  3. you will need to find a USB charging plug for your fan/filter
  4. at a school, your ethernet ports might be restricted - a trick you can try is plugging it into a wall port a paper printer is already plugged into (it is more likely to have access). Otherwise you might need an IT person to bind the MAC address of the printer to a specific IP.

To verify it is working go the Main Menu and then About and look for an "Ethernet IP":
