Do you have a router in your house and you connect wirelessly to your Internet? If so, you can just plug in a cable from your computer to the router.

Lots don't have a specific requirement that the internet connection be hardwired. What sort of work are you looking for?

Default had wireless too

we had a good deal for our wireless and it was pretty reliable but we had to get hardwired to wah. just do it. ask your neighbors what they use. you can bing your area and look up carriers. ATT sell wired but we are using a cable company and they have no contract which I like. go for 10 gb if possible or more, you may need a home phone or a digital phone that is hardwired or an internet phone.

I know it's hard to come up with that money but it's really hard to find a home job without having that .

You can buy a cable for a few bucks from Amazon. It's an ethernet cable. This seems like an odd requirement though. I mean, I could understand it for something like working as a bingo CM, but most telecommuting jobs don't need such robust connectivity.

Question what sort of wireless?

What sort of wireless are you using? If you're buying it from the cable company, then all you need is a router and an ethernet cable. Bingo bango, you're hardwired. If you're using a mobile hotspot though, then that equipment is not going to help.

My house is wireless and hard wired. I have ethernet jacks in all the rooms and 2 routers running off my modem. This way my work station is hard wired and all the computers and devices are wireless.
