Help find WiFi to Ethernet adapter.

There years ago I bought one of these for $30


https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B003KPBRRW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521532424&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=wnce2001&dpPl=1&dpID=41uFL6sLwiL&ref=plSrch

I would like to buy another put the price is outrageous. Like $300. There’s something wrong with that price. I don’t care if it is exactly the same or not. I just need something to accomplish this: I need to take the WiFi that is in the radio waves Around me and convert that into a stable Ethernet port. Short and simple.

What product would you recommend please ?

Thanks.

What you are looking for is a Wireless Bridge.  You can find numerous ones if you search for that term.  Here is one example:

As in this case, you'll often find this as a configurable mode for a wireless router.

I've personally used a number of ASUS routers for exactly this function, to name an example of the last point CompProbSolv raised (a configurable mode for a wireless router).

Thanks guys. I'm trying to find a good deal, and there is a refurbished one for sale for about $29. It's this baby:

Is this pretty much what I need for my purpose?

This appears to work along the exact same lines. Upside to getting a configurable router is that it can be repurposed for other uses. However, what you posted should work perfectly fine.
