Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 is a great convertible laptop, offering high amounts of versatility to get your work done at the desk and enjoy some media when chilling out on the sofa. There's a slight downside to packing all this technology into a light and thin design — no Ethernet port. Here are some adapters that'll let you plug straight into your access point.
The Ethernet port here supports up to Gigabit speeds to ensure you can connect pretty much everywhere, and LEDs on the port ensure you that data is moving as it should be. It's also an excellent USB 3.0 hub, with a trio of USB-A 3.0 ports along the top of the adapter support that all support data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.

There's no wrong answer here. The Ethernet adapter you choose is simply based on price and additional functionality. Any USB Type-C to Ethernet adapter will do. The C2G Ethernet adapter is a fine example of an adapter that'll look the part when coupled with your XPS 13 2-in-1.
If you need a few more ports with some USB passthrough, Anker has you covered with the 3-port Ethernet hub. Not only will you be able to enjoy faster transfer speeds over LAN, but also hook up some additional accessories to your notebook.
