Streaming devices like the Amazon Fire and Roku Stick have made watching all of our favorite programs so much better, but they do come with some drawbacks. Boy Genius Report has found one accessory that will eliminate the need to rely on unpredictable Wi-Fi. Find out more from BGR and shop below:
The best thing about streaming media devices like the Fire TV Stick and Roku Streaming Stick is, well, everything. But what makes them better than their set-top box counterparts is the fact that they’re so compact and they can be tucked away in an HDMI port behind your TV. They do have one shortcoming compared to boxes though: there’s no Ethernet port. Because of that, you’re at the mercy of Wi-Fi… unless you know about this awesome accessory. The UGREEN Ethernet Adapter lets you connect your Fire TV Stick, Fire TV, Roku Stick, Chromecast, and more to the internet via Ethernet so you’re no longer impacted by inevitable Wi-Fi connectivity issues. It’s a bargain at $17, but you’ll snag it for just $11.89 if you use the coupon code 303C6HVX at checkout.
Don’t have Ethernet in your home? Don’t worry, practically no one does — that’s why the D-Link Gigabit PowerLine Internet Adapter Kit exists. Just plug one box into any standard wall outlet near your router and the other one near your TV. Voila! You’ve got gigabit Ethernet.
