About this deal

Plug one end of your Ethernet cable into your router and the other end into the adapter’s Ethernet port. That said, if your FireStick is starting to respond slowly, it could be time to do a little maintenance. Note/Update (12/2022): It appears that some users have experienced the loss of this feature due to a software update that might have either broken or removed it.

It also features 3-foot cables for the micro-USB and USB, making setup easy no matter how your entertainment center is configured. We threw one of these cables onto a Fire TV Stick 4K and as you can see from the screenshot (below), it shows as being connected via Ethernet. However, if you’re in a busy neighborhood or have alots of devices connected to your WiFi network, this can quickly affect the performance of your streaming stick. With this product, you can connect up to three additional USB devices, like a mouse, a keyboard, or external storage. This may be fine, but if your Wi-Fi can achieve higher speeds than 100Mbs, this may end up throttling your internet connection even further.

In addition to the officially supported models, users have reported that it’s compatible with most of the other FireStick models. WiFi signals can be affected by many mnay things in the environment of the home and despite having a very strong signal there would be occasional buffering on some days for no apparent reason. For example, they mention it's faster than Wi-Fi, no longer getting lag, and connects wirelessly really quickly. You might decide to pick a fight with your Wi-Fi router or start complaining about your internet service provider again. The engineer is coming back this week to swap out the Hub 3 with a Hub 5 and claims we will have much better coverage around the house and more reliable internet.

So, why would you want to connect an Ethernet adapter to your FireStick and have to plug it into your router, wherever that may be? Some third-party devices are more simplistic, with a device featuring only ethernet and micro-USB ports, while other devices feature various ports like additional USB charging ports. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. As you only need to pick one, you may be confused or have second thoughts, and you may even make a bad decision.The adapter connects to the female USB port, the female micro-USB connects to your FireStick power, and the male micro-USB connects to the FireStick.
