Slim Ethernet Port on Laptop. What kind of wire/dongle do I need?

Dear LTT Community,

 

Mother-in-law's laptop ( hp 15-b129wm ) is of slim design and has one of these slim/low-profile Ethernet ports.  I am having the hardest time finding a wire/dongle to use this port.  Any ideas on what I need?  

 


 

 

I know there are USB-Ethernet adapters but I want to utilize the Ethernet port on the laptop!  

 

Thanks!

 

Fry

Is it a door that comes down when you insert a cable? I've used a laptop with a similar mechanism.

The bottom of the port is on a hinge. Just push it downwards, and a regular ethernet cable fits in. My HP has this as well.
