    Four options:

    1) Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (cheapest, most portable)
    2) Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
    3) A Thunderbolt 3 dock (available soon?) (many more ports, less portable)
    4) Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 dock

    I don't know if you'll notice a difference between having the Ethernet come through USB or Thunderbolt.
