How to connect Ethernet only devices such as NAS to your WiFi

Hi, I had DS218 synology and I couldn’t find any Wi-Fi Dongle that is on the Synology Compatibility list. Is that mean I had to use Lan cable? But the office that I rent they only can provide me a wi-fi connection.

Can you suggest me what can I do or is there any wi-fi dongle that will work on my DS218?

Asus AC56 was a popular choice. I am not sure if it is still compatible with the latest NAS firmware.

But I would recommend WiFi extenders with a built-in RJ45 Ethernet connection. This would be the fastest and simplest way to achieve this. Otherwise, you could get a Synology MR2200 access point and use that with ethernet at the back.

Here is what I just found:
