I have an hp laptop and windows 10. I lost my home and im staying in a hotel that provides wifi but no ethernet access.. Is there anyway to take the wifi and turn it into a hardwire connection? my laptop has wifi the hotel has wifi, non password protected. I can not plug into a modem..

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

my laptop has wifi the hotel has wifi
I am confused as to what you wish to accomplish. If your laptop has built-in WiFi and the hotel offers WiFi, can't you use the laptop's built-in WiFi to connect to the hotel's WiFi access point?

If your laptop does not have WiFi, there are USB based WiFi adapters that can add WiFi to a non-WiFi equipped computer if it has an available USB port.

There are stand-alone WiFi to Ethernet Bridge devices with one or more Ethernet ports that allow one or more devices with Ethernet ports, but no WiFi to connect to a WiFi access point. EDIT: Here is a link to one such multi-function device that includes a bridge mode:
