    We were given an ASUS notebook, model UX303V Notebook PC
    It does not have a standard Ethernet connection. It does has two USB ports and an SD connection on the left side.
    On the right is an HDMI, a USB, an unknown connection and the power jack.
    That unknown connection has a marking that might be a stylized P or D, but I cannot determine what it is.

    We need to reset the computer and gain access to the admin account. There is no information / data on the computer that needs to be saved.

    I found a method to reload the OS via network but it stated it could not do that.
    So, I need some method of hard-wired connection to the internet.

    How is this connection to be made? What kind of cable must be used?

    Thank you for your time.

    I don't have an edit option so do a reply.
    I found some steps to re-install. It did not work out well. Here is what has been done:
    Shift Restart
    This gets the options Continue, Use a device, Troubleshoot and Turn off the PC
    Select Shift Troubleshoot
    Options are Reset this PC and Advanced Options
    Select Shift Reset this PC
    Two options: Keep my files, Remove Everything
    Select Remove everything
    The display goes black for a while, then prompts with: Cloud download or Local reinstall
    Select Cloud Download
    There is a USB to Ethernet adapter connected to the PC and to the router with a cable.
    Two options: Only the drive where Windows is installed, All Drives
    Select all drives
    Two options: Just remove my files, fully clean the drive
    Select Fully clean
    It displays, Getting things ready
    This is displays: Additional free space is needed where Windows is installed. Free up some space and try again.

    Big Problem: I specified to clean the drive. Everything. I cannot get more space than that.
    What can I do?

    As noted in the OP, I don’t have the admin password and cannot delete previous users stuff.
