Default Turn your Moto X into a basic wired network troubleshooting tool

I just got in a Micro USB to USB OTG Adapter Cable ($4), Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100 Fast Ethernet LAN Wired Network Adapter ($13) and Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Wired Network Adapter ($25) from Amazon, and both Ethernet adapters work with the OTG cable on my Moto X!

Plug either adapter in and upon establishing a connection, Wifi turns off (if it was on) and the wired interface becomes the default interface and default route. Remove the adapter and everything reverts to the way it was.

Most apps I tried with the wired connection worked fine, but some did not - most notably Fing Network Tools. I was really hoping that Fing Network Tools would work better than it does with the wired connection. I've already made suggestions to the Fing developers to better accommodate wired connections.

For $17 you can turn your Moto X into a basic network troubleshooting tool for wired connections using LanDroid.

Thanks for the heads-up! This could be VERY useful

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE
