    to be hardlined into

    "I am hardlined into a router."

    I have looked at some dictinaries to the meaning of hardline but they make no sense to me.

    Do meanings fit with the sentence given?

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hardline
    http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...rican/hardline


    What does "hardline into" mean used above?

    Thank you.

    That doesn't sound right to me. Things are "hardwired​" into other things.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: to be hardlined into

    I guessed that hardlined was a way to say connected with a cable (rather than wirelessly). Google tells me I was right. I've worked in IT since before it was called "IT" but today is the first time I've seen this expression.

    "Hardwired" means connected by wires that are permanently connected to both devices.
