Default Tablet with ethernet?

I'm hoping for a tablet that I can both use wifi, but also plug into an ethernet cable every so often. I've seen some cheap tables from china with a rj45 plug, but I can't tell if they have drivers (and I haven't seen one with android 2.2+ which I also need for my project). I would also like the tablet to have been rooted. I'm hoping for a pre $300 range.

Also, are there any usb -> ethernet/rj45 adapters out there with android drivers?

Thanks!

For some reason, I find it strange that someone would want a tablet with ethernet. I'm not sure why, but it's just an odd request to me.

Nothing to really add otherwise, but good luck in your search.

Sometimes wireless just isn't reliable or fast enough, having an RJ45 connection there, even if it's an adapter, would be nice!

We got a 10 inch Android Zenthink ePad to play with. It has an ethernet adapter, which works well.

The device itself is not very high quality, but it is fantastic value for money.

There are lots of reports of the adaptor socket coming adrift from the main board, so if you get one, be gentle with it.
