    Is there a way to hook up a phone (specifically GS5) directly to a modem via a ethernet cable?

    No. What are you trying to accomplish so we can provide alternatives.

    Theoretically, it may be possible. Here's a video of a Tab 2 hooked up to Ethernet:

    Interesting

    I was just wondering if it was possible because I know a wired connection is faster than a wireless connection and I thought I could try it

    It's faster, but the last I knew not by that much. I think you lose about 5 mbps for wireless, so it kind of depends on your base download rates.

    Just depends on your wifi speed. I get the same speed pretty much either way. Below is a test on my pc.. Next is my wifi.
