USB to Ethernet adapter?

I have done a search but didn't find anything. I have a Flex 6300 and am getting a new laptop to run it on. The laptop I am looking at does not have a ethernet connector. Would the Flex work if I used a USB to Ethernet adapter? Thanks

    I successfully use such an adapter on my MacBook Air.

    Think most modern laptops now don't have a ethernet port to keep the form factor smaller.

    Have also used a USB to eithernet adapter with success.

    Yes, any current USB/Ethernet adapter should be fine.

    Make sure you turn off any 'green' features or power saving on the USB device.
