Default [Q] LG G3 ATT using ethernet

I'v been wondering if I could get an OTG cable, hook it up to a USB to Ethernet port, and use Ethernet. Could you guys let me know if its possible or would I have to root my device or download drivers or something. Thanks.

Bluetooth Tethering also works well.

the entire point is to have a reliable wired connection. I don't know if the G3 can handle ethernet to usb.

As an IT professional, being able to plug into Ethernet ports would be kinda helpful.

usb > ethernet > usb

that would work... but what would be the point? the phone can tether over usb, but I suppose that's going on the other direction, perhaps what you're after is Internet Pass-through? I've seen this on HTC phones, so it's technically possible, but I'm going to guess it's built into the kernel, not a normal android option.
