Is it possible to connect Nanoleaf Panels to Desktop WiFi Adapter via Hotspot but use Desktop Ethernet for main internet connection?

My issue is that I have a terrible AT&T provided modem that wont allow full access and customization of WiFi settings so I cannot connect Nanoleaf to the wifi network. I want to connect Nanoleaf Panels to my PC to control them. I tried using the Nanoleaf Windows Pairing Tool but the hotspot was undiscovered even tho I had my wifi connected to them as a hotspot.

I'm currently only able to use my iOS device to switch off of wifi and connect to nanoleaf hotspot to change scenes. Then I have to switch wifi back to network to get data. It's extremely annoying. I'm assuming my best bet is to buy a router to connect to that is compatible with my Nanoleaf panels.

Any recommendations are welcome.

I'm pretty sure you can't use a wired connection without some crazy hacking, but you shouldn't need "full access and customization of wifi settings" to connect your aurora to your network. Just the password I believe.
