I'm guessing they're using the Lighting USB Camera kit. I've used that to connect my iPad to an ethernet connection. Not sure if that works with an iPhone.

Probably much easier for you to get a small WiFi module that will let you plug in the Ethernet. I use those when I travel and hotels provide only Ethernet and make you pay for WiFi

No the Op is using a Lightning to RJ45 Ethernet LAN Wired Network Adapter. OP, did you check your TCP/IP settings on your connection?

I am using the latest USB 3.0 Apple camera adapter indeed, along with an Apple branded ethernet to USB adapter.

What is odd, IOS asked me to update the adapter firmware and ever since then it has stopped working.

What exactly should I be checking for under my IP settings, I do have Verizon Fios I should say.

I just tried with my USB 3.0 Apple camera kit + Apple USB to ethernet.
I wanted me to updated the Camera kit, after updating it still worked for me.
I see a ethernet just under Wi-Fi in settings.

If I had to guess, I would say the updated didn't work for you, so you have a dead Apple camera kit adaptor :(

That could very well be the case, or my firewall.

It's detecting that I have ethernet plugged in, it just won't automatically find an IP and does not want to save when I type in what is required.

I started replacing each cable one by one, problem solved!

It was a faulty Apple ethernet to USB adapter, nothing wrong in software Dimzare got it right.

Just reporting on it now, just arrived in the mail.
