In that case can you not just set up your phone to provide a WiFi
There's also 4G routers that give you WiFi and four Ethernet ports just
like my Virgin Media router does. Apparently just needs a SIM card of
your choice inserted. I've never used one of these but my partner has a
WiFi only one that she used in a holiday house in Slovenia, it works OK
but appears to be locked to Slovenia Telecom cards.

A wireless router would solve the problem but there is the expense of
the router and the need for an additional sim card. Swapping the card
from the phone to the router would be a greater task than using
AirDroid. I have transferred files between my phone and Kubuntu via USB
but not with the current version of Kubuntu. Transferring files to and
from the phone to the Raspberry pi works well so it's not a Linux thing.
Anyway, thank you for your suggestion. I was just wondering if I'd
overlooked a setting because of the error message from Dolphin.
