    My Ethernet to USB-C adapter works great to give me error-free Internet to my phone, but would like to turn my phone into a WAP, fed by wired Ethernet instead of cell towers. Is this possible? I was pleasantly surprised that simply plugging in a wired Ethernet adapter just worked without loading any drivers.

    I don't really understand your question. WAP refers to wireless protocol but you are talking about a wired connection instead of cell towers. How are you going to get any data. I must have missed something but cannot get to grips with your post, sorry

    Update
    Perhaps you mean wireless access point?

    That depends on the phone, but usually not. Tethering feeds a WiFi or mobile data internet connection to the USB connector, or a mobile data connection to the WiFi radio - in most phones.

    Most Ethernet to C adapters carry their own drivers.

    WAP is an acronym for Wireless Access Point.
