I am employed by a company who runs a number of satellite sites. unfortunately they all have their own Networks.
This means if l need to look at files l have to download them onto a portable media and upload them to my laptop.
Is there any way l can l can plug in an Ethernet cable and configure access to each site when l am there?
On some occasions l am able to use an onsite terminal but this is not always the case and l have to wait around or ask someone to download the files l need so i can work on them. Not ideal!!
Any solutions please?

Yes, however you need to contact a network administrator from each site to have your laptop set up for each network. Likely they have security measures in place that block anyone from simply plugging into an Ethernet port.
