Anyone figure out how to hardwire a Gemini Air?

Trying to run wired networking through my whole house but the Gemini Air devices don't have Ethernet wondering if i could simply use a USB C to Ethernet adaptor or is this not accepted with the android os?

My guess is that it is unlikely.  I'd think if they supported Ether over the power port they would also offer an adapter (like Amazon does for the FireTV Stick), but they spec it as WiFi only.  The older Gemini device ("box") has an Ethernet port, but I don't know if DTV still offers those.  If not, you can get them (used) from eBay.

@darrent25 Trying to hard wire using USB-C has already been tried. Unfortunately it did not work it.  If you find a solution please let us know. According to the device specs for the Gemini Air device there is no way to run Ethernet to the Air it is strickly WiFi only.  Sorry!
